will have to make some calls tomorrow and take the one I bought earlier back to the retailer, 70" just isnt long enough keep the bike from high centering on entry. gonna have to find a 9' or so I guess. Didnt wanna spend the 400$ for that.
have also been doing a bit of reading on batteries and recharging systems for the house batteries. have to make sure at the minimum I can recharge the phone, and would like to get a laptop to play dvd's on, and have net access when I'm near a hotspot.
