It'll be fun

It's like flying, but with more traction.  And none of that Z-axis complexity.

Lost my faith in Zero with my 2011 S, but regained it with my 2014 SR.  Diginow SCv2 changed my SR from a fun ride to primary transport.

2014 Zero SR, accessorized. 2008 Vectrix VX-1 NiMH. 2001 Honda Helix.

The event was a blast, even though the weather was not perfect! there still came about 45 vehicles, a lot from far away. We had people from belgium, the netherlands, france, germany, italy, switzerland (of course) and even USA -> togo, was it you? :P

Yeah, I was there on the yellow johammer.

Yeah, it was a blast. Both the evening event and the ride in the Alps the next day.

The evening event culimnated in space below a museum by the old city wall, where we all charged from a bank of lithium batteries installed in an 57 Chevy pickup that our host uses to balance the load. Seems they pay for electricity based on peak usage, not average. So they store up solar energy and release it as needed.

I'll post some pictures later.

PS, if you want to try a johammer, SolarMarkt rents them. I paid ~$200USD for 24 hours. They are a solar wholesaler, panels and inverters and such. They are in the Zurich area. I got from there to Lucerne using less than half the battery. Using Google Maps with Avoids Highways mode takes you though some very interesting roads. There are a lot of single lane paved roads through farms and fields.
