Electric Motorcycle

Mike, being the rocket scientist and electric propulsion expert that he is, has in his spare time (you know, for fun) built an electric motorcycle. This is another way in which we differ. In my spare time, I take naps.

I won't divulge any information behind the making of this bike, because the details behind this project are his to share. Plus, I'd get them all wrong anyway. But, I will share footage of the motorcycle in action this weekend, because it is very cool and Mike's abilities are always astounding.

Show me the motorcycle!

Now, if only I could get him to apply all of that skill toward important tasks like laundry...

What capital is now needed for further development. Quite,economical and polution free.
What more does California expect. Can three ride to Texas.

I really don't think socks would do much in the way of protection! Did he make that from scratch or did he convert a normal motorcycle? It looks like scratch and that is pretty cool.

Ahhhhh! Where are the safety
measures for testing this rocket
on the street! Helmet? Eyewear? SOCKS/clothes? Baricades(for childrens safety)? First Aid Kit? Fire Extinguisher? Yes, I can get carried away. Very COOL Mike! What's the next step? You Rocket
scientist.....Safety First...REJ

Anonymous - I'm not sure the motorcycle can make it all the way to Texas without a LOT of stops for recharging, but it would be fun to try!

N - Mike converted/gutted a normal motorcycle with, of course, the use of duct tape. Ha! I hadn't noticed that.

Scott&Carrie - We need you in product development. An electric Lazyboy is just what the world needs!

REJ - I hear you on the safety stuff. I'm not sure what Mike's next step is, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't involve laundry.

Hey Mike...maybe I will ship my Road King to you and you can convert it...of course you will have to create some sort of continuous wave file that will make it still sound like a Harley...very cool dude!! Wish I was there to help out with the product testing...
Later!!

Thibodeaux -- Yes I saw the picture of your bike on your blog. SWEET! Yes; send it to me and I will evaluate it. I will return it at the end of the summer if I don't think it is feasible... -Mike
