Tron Light Bike ( Lithium Powered )
Gotta admit, as a Milwaukee kid there is something about the throaty roar
of a Harley Davidson that warms the cockles. But the all-electric Light
Cycle modeled after the machines in Tron makes a head-snapping case for
It is the creation of Parker Brothers Choppers out of Texas and Evolve
Motorcycles, a made-in-America startup building electric scooters that are
actually a zippy good time. Since the latest Lithium ion batteries are so
small (thanks, cell phone engineers!), motorcycle designers can go nuts
with new concepts and this $55,000 baby is proof.
But the Parker Brothers still love their internal combustion, so we also
checked out their grown-up Green Machine, a modern spin on the old Big
Wheel rival built around a Harley Davidson engine. Check it out.
Speed Triple w/Mivv
A quick clip of my 06 Speed Triple with a MIVV slip on Exhaust, so anyone interested in piping their
triple can get an idea of what it sounds like.
Beginner slow wheelies 1st day
This is me practicing slow wheelies for the first time. I'm trying to get
the feel for the balance point. The bike's a '93 CBR600. Since the video, I
have taken off the instrument panel, so it won't keep getting messed up,
and it looks a lot better. Any tips or advice would be great. I don't even
bother going fast while doing a wheelie, because I think slow controlled
wheelies are cooler, and better to learn on. Plus I'm not even old enough
to ride on the street, and parking lots aren't that big. Also, I want to
compete when I get good, and I'll need to know slow wheelies more than fast
ones. That was my third crash that day, but the bike's alright, and I am
too since I was wearing gear. I also have an Icon spine protector under the
Alpine jacket. And I'll have more videos up later of progress.
