    Good evening brother&sisters,
    In my retirement I operate a flatbed tow vehicle and relocate motorcycles now & then. The norm is, of course, strapping them down for delivery. I know the Elio will hook up with no troubles in the front but what is the thought regarding the rear. Straps will function but would the option of having a trailer hitch on Elio kill two birds?!

    So I was @ the Woodfield Mall-Schaumburg Elio showing on Sat and met Chip 'S' and in a low tone mentioned that I picked up my new Illinois(ELInOis) plate for my current motorcycle and plan on transferring it to Elio upon receipt(if the MC/plate issue holds true). He looked at me, rolled his eyes, called me a name:) and said "why didn't I think of that". I said, "you probably did think of it" :)

    Zelio mentioned that she is upgrading from $100 to $500. I was told (by the Elio rep @ the Chicago Woodfield Mall) that an upgrade as above would definitely put you in the driver's seat!
    I also am excited. When any day-by-day activity is of the sour flavour I just say the magic word; "ELIO", and it does bring a smile to my face. Way to go 'Z' !

    If I could have, I would have already upgraded to $250 but that wasn't an option. So, I simply had to work a little harder. The Elio definitely puts a smile on my face every day. I am also finding more ways to introduce others to the Elio. Having the bumper sticker on my car is great because I always point it out. Nothing shy about this Elio Girl! LOL :-) Z

    I'm all in, down around Peoria.
    Looks like the Elio will be a fun thing to drive.
