Wow, very cool Ben. Keep us informed (as much as you can at least, you'll might have to sign an NDA)!

I'll be giving a presentation on my electric motorcycle at the Mother Earth News Fair in Seven Springs, PA

My wife, young daughter and I are driving to near Albany NY to visit relatives, and then to Pennsylvania for the event. We'll have the Hymotion Prius at the car show at least one day.

If you are on the route between Milwaukee, Albany NY, and Seven Springs, PA, and want to meet me during our trip and say Hi, please let me know.

If you can make it to the Mother Earth Fair, I'd love to see you!

More roadtrip details: Rolling Meetup, Milwaukee to Albany, NY to Seven Springs, PA and back, Sept 14-24

Hi Ben,

Awesome work on the blog @300MPH. I've been doing something similar but for an off-ride bike (CRF450) for the last couple of years. We're using twin Agnis and the power is amazing on the tracks!

Keep it up!

Ed

Hi Ben,

Yep sure do. I've got a blog and facebook page with heaps of info. Happy to answer any questions. I'll probably ask a few as well, we've got a big task on to get ready for an expedition early next year.

I'm officially a PUBLISHED author!

BACKHOME Magazine asked me to write an article for them about my electric motorcycle. I sat down and pounded out five-thousand words for them and just got the published magazine in the mail today!

I'm pretty excited about it.
You can see that I'm even in the table of contents on their web preview!

Table of Contents

And my article is on page 42 for all you Douglas Adams fans!

In other DIY electric motorcycle news, I showed mine off at a local Alt. Fuels Event in the end of October.

It was pretty nasty weather that evening. Good thing it was an indoor event!



If you are interested in building your own electric motorcycle, remember, I made AN ENTIRE DVD INSTRUCTIONAL SET on the subject. If you were waiting for it to go on sale, here's your chance. I'm doing a "Black Friday" sale right now. Click here. Great stocking stuffers for all your friends!
