"this year’s models will resonate with both serious riders and casual motorcycle enthusiasts on a global level.”

If "resonate" means we're going to ignore it until they get a real bike, I guess they're right. The one I rode is far from "ready for prime time." And considering what $10 grand will buy, new or used, in a gas bike...faghettaboudit.

WTF? I thought between you and Socko, there would be a Zero Motorcycles Dealership on each coast by now!

Ken isn't a practicing environmentalist. He's more of a preacher type! :)

Actually there are, and I overhead a couple guys trying to get a franchise on a new one in their area. Brammo has made a deal to sell their bikes in Best Buy stores around the country.

I like the idea of an electric bike, or car for that matter. It's just a matter of time before one that's useful comes out. But the street bikes Zero has for sale now are basically big electric bicycles, not motorcycles. The dirt bikes seem a better deal...they can leave off all the DOT stuff and get better performance.

Shouldn't you be practicing riding your Bool? You'd better get good at it before some Vee rider comes along and embarasses you.

The Vee rider is certainly far more embarrased riding that thing than I ever will, or could be!
