The day of the electric motorcycle will come eventually. It’s only a matter of time.
So a hundred years hasn't been enough?

It's not a matter of time. It's a matter of physics.

You guys must realize that if the govt subsidies and tax credits run out all these electric vehicles are going to disappear. Then no replacement parts will be available at all.

Pure electric vehicles are a great big "meh" until battery technology evolves more. Show me 150 miles per charge and we're talking.

I've been hearing that for twenty years, at least.

These things don't do a thing for me. They seem a bit soulless.

I just drained some premix out of the neighbor's KX500 and poured it into the Cuddymobile.

It will smoke this thing. It might vibrate to pieces in the process but it's way cooler and much more dangerous feeling with the coaster brake and steep Carlsbad hills.

Wishing won't make lithium batteries more able to store energy.
