Silence is our friend!
« on: October 02, 2017, 09:16:40 PM »

Sold my 17' KTM Duke this weekend and went on a ride with the guy that bought it on my Alta SM, after a good ride, he turned left to go home, I turned right to head down the mtn we were on, well, I pin the throttle headed to a long sweeping corner and low and behold, a cop is sitting facing towards me on a gravel pull off, I never let off, then there was unfortunately a long straight after the sweeper, I kept looking back, he never pulled out, I don't think he even heard me, I don't even know if he saw me, maybe he didn't care, all I know is that he never pulled out for whatever reason.  I am confident that had I been on an ICE bike, he'd surely done something, if not, it would have been the first time one looked the other way...

Awesome story!  Thanks for posting it.

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.

You're welcome.  This electric bike stuff is still new to me so y'all will have to pardon my enthusiasm:)  My other bikes are getting lonely....
