I don't want a electric mobility scooter.

Preferable option would be a 640 lb battery packed rechargeable knuckle walking/bipedal mechanized gorilla.

By engaging four limb knuckle walking drive I could saddle up and ride it to the shops.

It's a shame that there aren't more or any banana yellow electric street recharging stations.

       During certain weather conditions this could be adapted to fit fog lamps.

       In a secure parking lot, or someone will definitely steal it.

       Perhaps it could be programmed to climb into a tree and wait there until summoned by a remote control, or by the owner giving an appropriate 'Tarzan' yodel…   

       Since the gorilla will not have lights (except for the Bill Gates model, where a blinding light shines continouously from its rear), the rider should be prepared to don a fluorescent Orang jacket during the hours of darkness …

       Strangely enough, Vernis Shackelford constructed a steam-powered rideable gorilla in the 1890s, and made quite a lot of money as a showman, working mainly in Devon and Cornwall. The apparatus was lost with the sinking of the Emphira in the Channel in 1896, after which Shackelford turned to drink.

       well, he had to din't he: the gorilla was his ride home.

       "George Formby Grill"… someone should post that …

       The George Formby Grill - it's leaner than the lampost on the corner of the street.

       Hydro poles take care of both recharging and parking.
