Carla - Your bud Robert in Denver here. HEre is what little knowledeg I have. They are pretty easy to get down there at several places new and used. New more expensive, used you have to watch out for busted axles, springs as you know the roads are rough there.

Batteries and chargers are the expensive thing - 4 times more so than in the states.

The big kicker in getting one is getting a permit to operate one on the island as they have or are putting a limit on how many can be on the island. Plus you gotta have insurance and tags too and a license. Gas runs $4 bucks a gallon or so and the permit applies to anything motorized. Bikes - there is a guy by the cut that sells them for pretty cheap and you don't have to worry about hauling them from the mainland.

Hope that helps.
