Mad money from selling GarageGames. Plus another 19.5 million in the IPO.

I've met Mark Frohnmayer. He's saner than I am. Or Elon Musk.

All the equipment to make every proprietary part is in place.

As a wise man once said, "Isn't sanity really just a one-trick pony anyway? I mean all you get is one trick, rational thinking, but when you're good and crazy, oooh, oooh, oooh, the sky is the limit!"

My ten-day fiancée was completely sane--and boring. It seemed like everyone else who wanted to date me was on the other end of the spectrum.

I think you need a little bit of insanity for innovation.

I am sure there were people planning on purchasing upper-end Archies, so they are probably quite happy.

As long as the $13,000 version comes out before too terribly long.

Ah, GarageGames. I know a few guys that worked there. Josh was CEO/CTO. I never asked how well they made out, but they're doing quite well in the Bay area now.

Never met Mark.

It's not enough to have a great idea, you also have to convince others it's a great idea.

I met Mr. Frohnmayer outside the door at the downtown roll-out of the 7th generation (Pulse>Shark>FUV) in 2016. I didn't know who he was at the time but my first question was if it had a tow rating. He said /14 ton, and that was right twice. It had one, and it would tow my Westfalia utility trailer.

The SRK Owner's Forum has rebranded itself. https://fuvowners.com/index.php

It doesn't have much more connection to Arcimoto than Ecomodder.

edit: I've been poking around there. Here's a picture of a trailer hitch solution:

Of course, rather than a U-shape, I think it should be a Gothic arch, so it can be the foundation of a folding boat tail as well.

I just received an email with an offer to get an Evergreen edition delivered in June. I respectfully declined.

If there's an intermediate step between $20K and $12K I might be more tempted. I've expected to pay $16K anyway.
