I just did this because you folks wanted me to, but I was so wrong! I've
been dismissive of electric vehicles. I like my noise! Only the Porsche 918
had me interested, then the Mission R bike. I thought these were gonna be
like glorified Vespa...WRONG! These electric bikes really surprised me!
Sorry about laughing like a girl by the way. :)

Chip Yates: World Record Junkie and Electric Motorcycle Pioneer! On Two Wheels Ep. 39
On this episode of On Two Wheels, we visit Chip Yates, an engineer turned
professional motorcycle racer, turned record-setting electric technology
pioneer! Chip decided at the age of 36 to quit his job at Boeing and
pursue a career as a professional AMA racer.
After turning pro, he had a big crash which ended his competitive career.
Looking to the future, Chip was not discouraged, but rather, motivated to
venture into new territory. He designed and built an all electric
superbike that produced 258hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. He went on to race
the bike and broke numerous World Records at Bonneville and Pikes Peak
International Hill Climb.
With 10 World Records under his belt, he wasn't done yet! He took the
technology he developed in the electric superbike and built an electric
airplane. In his second flight ever in the aircraft, he broke the world
speed record for an electric aircraft and his record still stands today!
On Two Wheels appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
