I sure hope this new charging system works!  

That was the thought I would soon answer after investing another $2,000 into the latest charging equipment for my electric motorcycle.  Such is life when you are on the cutting edge of new technology.  I've gotten used...

The final leg of my 8640 mile journey on an electric motorcycle!  After 50 days on the road, and averaging 400+ miles per day of riding, I finally made it back home.

In Austin I visited swing dancing friends Orion and Tina who moved to Spicewood, TX together shortly after getting married to open the TerraPurezza Regenerative Agriculture Institute.  They are basically taking back the desert by turning dead dirt into soil that can su...

Surprise!  Your bike didn't charge last night.

This is what I woke up to on my first day riding East.  Fortunately I hadn't used too much of my battery the day before.  At 64% I could get out of the main traffic zone of Los Angeles.
