Purely because of the amount of adds on the site, we use an add blocker and it is therefore not a problem



I must say that I'm thoroughly enjoying the series so far, beautiful part of the world and the ďgoing electricalĒ is certainly adding its own set of challenges and solutions to their endeavor.
Harley Davidson and Rivian have really been coming to the party on this one. This might just be what Harley Davidson needs at this point in time and Rivian also seems to be a very impressive company

I completely agree!
One day we (OK, our kids lol) may look back on this and comment something like "Hey, they didn't have any charging infrastructure yet, how weird!"
Same like a GrandPa explaining to his grandkids now like "... and we could not find where we were on our map", and then the kids quiz him with "What is a map Gran?"
Times are changing, and the (costly so btw!) pioneering now is at least brave, plus nice to watch!  :thumleft:

Also enjoying the show. It's rides like this that will show up the challenges and difficulties so that solutions can be developed.

However I am still battling with the no engine noise. That whine just does not sound right

They have the technology. They can even make an empty 50,000 seat stadium sound full of cheering fans, so a bike exhaust should be easy.  :biggrin:

"They" say I confuse wanting to stay young with wanting things to stay as they were when I was young.

But that would be like a Mitchell's Plain Tazz sounding like a Ferrari, there is a limit to fake. Quietness is the one advantage of E-vehicles.

I have to agree.  Iíve often ridden through areas where I wished the engine was silent because it scared the wildlife away.

On the other hand, there was talk in the UK to introduce legislation that electric and hybrid cars should have some noisemaking device especially around town after too many pedestrians were hit in parking lots. Apparently they are too quiet at low speeds so people donít here the car...

Watching episode 5 now, altitude sickness is really a bummer, weird that it affects only certain people adversely

Even a problem with new gen diesel/petrol engine.... was watching my wife stroll towards me in the road of a hospital parking lot just this week with a spanking new Land Cruiser patiently following her waiting for her to move over.... she eventually jumped out the way when I could get her in earshot as no manner of gesticulation could get her to look over her shoulder to notice the V8 Cruiser tailing her.... ;D

Watching and enjoying it as well - the charging introduces some new challenges, approaches and innovations. Think the last episode they had a new solution for charging the bikes out of the bakkies in 2 hours.

One thing i like about the bakkies is that they can be quickly tow charged - clever idea :thumleft:
