    Big Hugh

    So sitting counting my mi££ions after selling my MV today and everything else (pair of Gen 3 Rims, Damper and Pegs)... in pops a text from none other than big HUGE ..

    It was great to hear from him.. so he's sold his beemer and is running around on this Leccy Harley.. !.. of course questions had to be asked... what's it like on corners...shite.. we'll it does weigh as much as my 2.5 tonne Toureg......

    He said he'll be back online soon, and of course was told to get his act together and buy another beemer soon.... he was asking for all the lads !..

    Is that a electric Harley? I generally don't like them but the electronic one is pretty cool.

    It is ... we'll not be able to buy "normal bikes" in 20 years time, can you imagine the scene... they'll have to sell leccy bikes with engine noise generators to remind us and pedestrians of our imminent arrival...thankfully I'll be dead or too fucked up to ride a bike then

    Hey Stu. Thanks for the shout out. I'm still not back on an RR, but hoping I can scrabble the bucks together for a Gen4 later this year.

    Would just like to state for the record that I'm not now a Harley convert: A mate in Brighton is organising the London to Brighton EV rally and I'm helping him with the bikes, so I've been testing them in the name of quality motorcycle journalism

    I'll post on here soon about the 1,000 mile tour I did in the west country when I get a mo. For now, 2 things about the Livewire are insane:

    Acceleration: 0-60 time and instant massive torque will show an RR a clean pair of heels. I couldn't believe it.
    Range: Brochure says +100 miles, but that's if you ride like grandma. Thrashing range is 60 miles. Jeez.

    Great to hear from you Hugh! Electric bikes are the future but they do need to sort out the range problem and availability of charging points. Can see it working for commuting and on track with current gen range.

    I think I'll be one of those buying a new petrol bike the last year before electric becomes compulsory for new sales.
