Hi, my Name is Martin. I live in Forchheim (Germany) and work in Erlangen, both  next to Franconian Switzerland
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franconian_Switzerland which is a great area for motorcyclers.
I`ve got a Zero S 2013 in yellow since mid of July and rode nearly every day to my office having nice tours before or after work.
Picture below shows my bike at the first electric vehicle charging point in Bavaria, in Egloffstein.

Hi Martin,

nice bike I rode a 2013 S not long ago, it performs really good . But still like my 2012 and be happy to have 11000Km with very little issues.

A pity you are a bit fare away for a ride. I live next to Memmingen.

Have fun with your Zero. If you need some help for how to use a Type II plug for your bike let me know and I post how to built it.

Hi guys! Looks like I missed this section for my first post. Anyway, I am a couple years off financially before I can own a Zero S but my girlfriend will most likely be picking hers up this week or next.

I have been riding motorcycles for about 6 years now and in that time I have owned a Harley Nightster, Street Bob, Ninja 250, Ninja 650, Goldwing and an R6. I still have the R6 and Street Bob. I am looking to make my R6 a dedicated track bike and have the Zero S take it's place for commuting duty.

I live in Upstate New York just outside of Albany and one of my favorite stores just added Zero Motorcycles to their inventory.

Hey all! I currently have a 2000 Buell M2 Cyclone. I love it and it is the best bike I have ever owned (aside from having to deal with Harley dealer mechanics who don't understand anything that isn't a cruiser) but, in 2011 I test rode a Zero DS at a local Bay Area shop and it changed my life. I always swore I would never sell the Buell But, I'm going to the first chance I get so I can get a 2014 Zero S! I cant wait to see what they have coming this year!

e-Hello !  Just joined; will be purchasing an e-bike in January and want to learn as much as possible before then.  If various motorcycle monikers can have "User / Rider / Owners Groups", I think there should be something similar for e-bikers.  First up, I sure wish MAPQUEST would list ChargePoints ( J1772  and  CHAdeMO ) in the maps it gives !

Bueller,

I owned a couple of Buell Ulys and loved them.

I don't know if you noticed but Abe Askenazi, who was one of the main engineers at Buell, now works at Zero.   You can see some similarities.

Ron,

Check plugshare.com - they have a pretty good map of chargers and charge stations.

Hi, new to this forum; in the process of purchasing a 2012 Zero DS; hope I have better luck with it than with my present Vectrix; My local dealer promised me they had replaced the battery on it; doesn't even run 20 miles, before it dies; so now I'm looking at Zeros. I hope to get my Vectrix repaired and sold after I get my Zero. Has anyone in this forum worked on Vectrix motorcycles? Thanks for any and all replies :)

When I first read this I thought you were getting 20 miles on the Zero!

kingcharles has owned a Vectrix for several years and has rebuilt the battery pack. You might PM him, or he may answer here.

scouter888, I had a Vectrix and was able to get range back by running the battery all the way down repeatedly (NiMH battery).  It was tedious, but the range went back up to nearly the original range. 

When I bought the Vectrix it went 40mi on a charge.  After a year and a half it was down to 20 miles, then up to about 30-35mi after running the battery all the way down several times.
