"Too many Turnigys?"

I am recovering from a quadruple-bypass heart-op. I had planned to sell my home-built electric motorcycle if I could afford a better machine ready-made Zero Motorcyces quit the UK abruptly, I cannot afford a Brammo or one of the Italian rocketships, "Agility Saetta" are still in the gestat...

Re: My new project

Quality work. Looking forward to the next phase.
In these road conditions, (+0.5 to +6 degrees C, inc. a 1/2 mile 10-15% uphill), I roughly estimate my 64 Turnigys lose maybe 10% of their range over the spring and autumn distances
All the best
