Default Battery bike gives inventor an ouchie

Oops! I guess a battery-powered moto can kill a sucka just as easily as a petrol-burning bike. Maybe next time the guy (Bill Dube, the inventor) will wear some protective gear and practice on his invention before burning out in public. Glad he survived 0-60 in .97 seconds. Ouch that's gotta smart.

Same bat news from the same bat channel -- i.e., just posted the same article.

0 to 60 in .97 seconds. 60 to 0 in .00000002 seconds. Nice!

It's the new Brembo Minivan brakes. I believe the advertising tagline for the line of brakes is "Stop so quickly you'd swear you just hit a minivan".

I like the sound it makes. It reminds me of the big electric R/C planes the guys are flying these days. A "fine whine," indeed!

Ya gotta wonder: what was going through the company President's mind when he was doing his JC impersonation next to the van? "God, I know I've been a sinner. That night in Mexico City...well, you know. But if you get me through this one, I promise I'll spend the rest of my life battling Satan's hydrocarbons!"
