    So, are you getting one?

    As cool and amazing as they probably will be, i’m going to stick to my petrol burning paint shaker.

    It’s going to be very interesting to see where this goes, nonetheless.

    The burgeoning tech of E-bikes is perfect for such a forward thinking man (and group). I'm super excited to see whats up!!!

    Do you have to use the cloths-pin and baseball card "mod" on the spokes to make it sound like a motorcycle?

    I am sure just like HD they will have noise by developing an artificial sound that whined as the riders cranked the throttle, but it wasn’t exactly enough to thrill the people who rode it.0

    In the future it might be very quiet on race day. Maybe by the time I need one mobility chairs will have the characteristic Buell lines too

    I rode the Victory electric bike a year or so ago and loved it. Once the cost comes down a bit or the range goes way up, I would seriously consider one. Sadly, here in the Phoenix area, all the decent riding is 75 to 100 miles away before it gets nice. So an electric bike doesn't work for me. I can also do 100-150 miles drives around town when going to various job sites, so again, not for me yet.
