Ready to Scoot

We normally seen Hans astride his Yamaha complete with sidecar.  Now he tells us that he's found the ideal electric scooter to take with him on Binda when he's cruising. Small enough to fold up and stow in the head and with a range of 25 km, it's ideal for fetching a coffee at his next destination.
