Long Way Up - Charley and Ewan goes electric
« on: September 09, 2019, 07:20:16 am »
Rumours are that the next instalment of the well known franchise will see the two friends riding Harley Davidson LiveWire electric bikes travelling North crossing the Americas

They keep returning like a terrible nightmare. :ricky:

At least this time they're on something slightly better suited to adventure riding.

"Herpes, the gift that keeps on giving" comes to mind.

It will be interesting to see the pitfalls and advantages shown of electric.

Ek dink jy moet die boodskap vir Charles en Ewan stuur. Weet hulle dat battery-goed herlaai moet word? :peepwall:

"Also arriving in Buenos Aires alongside the Harleys were two cutting-edge electric pickup trucks manufactured in Illinois by Rivian, a company devoted to building “Electric Adventure Vehicles.” These trucks are said to deliver up to 400 miles on a full charge, while the Harley LiveWire is claimed to provide 146 miles of stop-and-go travel per charge or roughly 95 miles of combined city/highway.

It would be tough enough to travel coast-to-coast on backroads in the U.S. without a struggle to charge up this collection of e-vehicles, so we’re assuming the additional vehicles that landed, two 4×4 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans and a single Ford F350 (V8 6.2), will carry some mobile DC fast chargers as well as crew members, spare parts and the spare bike.

Isn't the definition of adventure to take an unsuitable bike for the task? They will have an adventure for sure and it will be massively entertaining if they keep the whining to a minimum.

What a bloody farce! What are they going to prove?

They should try the long way up Africa, without any back up vehicles or spare batteries, relying only on existing recharge facilities.  :-\

Now that would prove just how much "more suited" the bikes are to adventure riding.  :3some: :lol8:

Had to check the date quickly but sadly its not April 1st. Sure they will take the easy way out with huge back up as in the past and then get lorded as African conqueres. CHOPS!
