Default Re: The Electric Motorcycle (sulfuric) Acid Test

For those who don't know who Edward Leedskalnin is... he's the guy who built Coral Castle (aka Rock Gate Park). He moved blocks of coral weighing upwards of 28 tons ... by himself. When asked how he did it, he said he understood the laws of weights and leverage, and also directed people to his pamphlets about electricity and magnetism.

Great addition to the already ultra informative MO content. Maybee an article of this nature doesn't make you feel like your out on the road, but it gets your brain (or should I say electrical impulses to jump across the synapsis void) going pretty good while stuck in the office.



More Please.

And, for the Zen Buddists among you... "mu" backwards is "um"... deep... (where's Edie Brickell when you need her?)

Default Hey, man, maybe this isn't such a......

I mean, it might not be such a simple.....it might be more...ahh...ahh complex......it might be, ahh....ya know?





(1) X=Y ; Given

(2) X^2=XY ; Multiply both sides by X

(3) X^2-Y^2=XY-Y^2 ; Subtract Y^2 from both sides

(4) (X+Y)(X-Y)=Y(X-Y) ; Factor

(5) X+Y=Y ; Cancel out (X-Y) term

(6) 2Y=Y ; Substitute X for Y, by equation 1

(7) 2=1 ; Divide both sides by Y



-- "Omni", proof that 2 equals 1

The proof falls down at step 5. X-Y is zero. Dividing anything by zero is infinity (or invalid).

Default Re: A Diesel motorcycle with Coleman lanterns needs no electrics

Er... guess what.. it exists. The British army wants bikes that can use a common fuel source in a battlefield situation and tanks use.... Diesel...



So they built an offroad diesel bike. Seriously. Apparently they arn't much fun but pretty effective at traversing torn up fields. There's a quad verion in the offing too.

Wow, and I was actually thinking the other day how cool it would be if MO landed Glydon. Really. Lady Cleo told me it would never happen, tho. Congrats to MO, you landed two of the better writers, one of them a local treasure, in a short span.

Yes, that's what I meant by the KLR reference. 120 MPG and 24 roaring HP. Here is link http://www.motorcyclenews.com/news/d...cumentID=58420 add Coleman lanterns and you'd be set up though it would be a bit hard to start with out glow plugs.



'Dr Stuart McGuigan, who headed the project at the Royal Military College of Science said: " Those who have tested the bike say it?s beautiful at the low-end, which makes it perfect for getting out of bogs and holes when riding off-road"'
