Welcome Butch. Yeah, hard to beat Electric. Lots of us have neglected gas bikes. You just ride off-road?

I have a sport bike and a motard and I regularly enjoy the twisties. We have some great racetracks around here too.

Yesterday I rode the tard (TM Black Dream) but today I will ride the Alta...

I found this forum wandering around the internet.  I recently got a 2017 ktm battery free ride.  Over 300 miles at this point.  Ride almost exclusively on private land.  The rear brake on the handlebar has made me pretty much stop riding anything else.  I shrunk a smat phone picture for an avatar but the avatars here are real timy.

Form still owned by the same guy who started it 10 or so years ago?

I am interested in discussing the possible future of electric bikes.  be it diesel generator and battery or just battery or even fuel cell.

I test rode a Zero FX but the suspention and crash durability seem much more to my needs with the ktm.  The ALTA while more advanced is too heavy especially for the cost.

I will try and add my avatar picture here to start.

It does not appear this forum has galleries for members.

I see a modifly function I am using now, like an edit elsewhere, how long before that function disappears?

Hi all. I'm an old fart 69.....riding every year for 51 years. Lately i'm getting intrigued with the e-bikes...especially the zero FXS 7.2. I currently ride a highly modified 2015 Yamaha FZ07....but at my age find myself only doing short rides of 50 miles or so. After all the research...I am drawn to the ZERO FXS 7.2. I can't spend 10k for a new one....so i'm looking for a used one to buy. If you have a 2017 or 2018 ZERO FXS 7.2...let me know. I'm in Atlanta Georgia...and i'm ready to buy right now.

Hi Butch.  I'm a bay area guy too, have perused BARF sometimes.  Good to see you here. 
We do rides sometimes, indeed this Sunday we are going riding from Livermore to
Carnegie SVRA, 22 miles including Tesla Rd.  I imagine we should post on BARF too,
the e-moto people are invited, and the e-curious as well.  Usually the participants
are Zero riders, but we've had Energica and ZEV and Harley folks as well.

Hi ZRESTO, CHL, Fran, as well.  Good to have you in the forum.

Welcome Forum People. I'm (soonish) going to be a KTM Freeride-e owner. My finger is itching on the new 2018 with the extra range and the chance to lease batteries by the month. I tend to do small competitions offroad but the road manners and ability to register it wont hurt if I want to drive to the shops on it. I'm also looking to charge the bike with my solar panels and, when required, take an inverter generator with me to events with a spare battery. Champion do a 3.1KW/13A charger so I might give that a go.

Heya. Calamarichris in Carlsbad here, looking forward to test-riding a Zero SR down in San Diego this weekend. Been riding and wrenching for decades, but my commute is so short, I feel pretty foolish starting an internal combustion engine to make it.
Have over a quarter million miles and 16 broken bones behind me (hence the chopped & fried squid reference), and I figure there must be something to this electric torque after having a Tesla keep up with my BMW F800GT. Also have an old carbureted 02 ZX9R with 88,000 miles on it.
Will probably have some questions in the future, especially about getting my dog  to work on this bike. If anyone finds themselves in Carlsbad needing a charge, shoot me an email: calamarichris@yahoo.com

Hi all,

I'm a Bay Area vendor for the Ubco 2x2 and found this forum while educating myself on e-bikes. So far my only riding experience (gas or electric) is with Ubco's dual electric drive on a beach and some trails during a camping trip to the Lost Coast. So, it's been fun reading about some of the different bikes occupying other niches of the motorcycle market. I know this is a biased audience, but I can't stop telling everyone I know what a game changer electric motorcycles are! (again, my experience comes from cycling and mountain biking rather than gas bikes... but still!)
