Well the BBS02 vendor offered 3 extension cables for the speed sensor, 18 inches long @ $20 each plus $20 shipping. I thanked them for the offer and was able to find 2 cables 24" long with free shipping from China for $37 Canadian. And they have arrived and the motor is all set up. What it means is now on the trainer is when power is set to zero I can monitor supposed speed and more importantly distance. So far I,m only riding (trainor) about 15 minutes every other day but it does add up.
