    Used the frunk as a vegetable hauler. Father-in-lawís garden is kicking into high gear.

    Grilled some yellow squash with Parmesan cheese and a T-bone for dinner.

    If you unbolted the handlebars I think you could stuff it in the back of the minivan. It would not be vertical though. Bring boxes or cushions for support to lean it over. I think renting a pickup...

    I recently bought the 120/70. It is readily available.
