    new harley electric

    Hifi system onboard to deliver that sonorous Harley exhaust note?

    Gotta love the simulated gas tank fairing... shades of Buick's Ventiports (portholes) of the 1950s.

    That said, an electric motorcycle actually makes a fair amount of sense -- the power to weight ratio could be outrageous, if they can pack enough lithium ion cells on board to give it a reasonable range.

    "The original LiveWire battery was estimated to have about 1/10 the energy capacity of the Tesla battery, which suggests a freeway range of less than 40 miles. Harley has almost certainly done a lot of work on the LiveWire since 2014, but even if its battery comes in much larger at 20 kWh and 210 pounds, which would make it state-of-the-art, the highway range of the LiveWire is unlikely to be much more than 100 miles, at least at 75 mph. Heaven help you if you cruise at 90 mph, as that would cut range by another 30 percent."

    I believe the calcium comment reflected the sort of fluffy, degraded appearance of the snail's shell -- which I hadn't even noticed when the photo was originally posted. :(

    soooo... I was mindin' my own business, doing a search on 1990s Steeo Review magazine scans at https://www.americanradiohistory.com/ * and I stumbled across this two-page ad featuring the Lab Coat Guy himself, blindfolded. :|

    I would be interested to observe the sound coming from that system. Upon looking at it, why are the speakers not toed in?

    Maybe the owner has a VERY wide head and a tow in is not necessary?

    It's just like snow tires -- all of 'em I've seen seem to be made out of some sort of rubberlike compound. I guess if they weren't, they'd melt in the summertime.

    I hear ya, but unfortunately I'm lactose intolerant. Milk doesn't like me as much as I like it. Cheese on a pizza... no problem. But straight milk or cream would make for a very uncomfortable 24 hours of sitting on the throne.
