    Electrified Harley????

    I know we have some hard core biker guys among our group and was wondering what you all think of this? Now, I am not a biker and maybe I am old fashioned, but an electric Harley? Just don't seem right I tell ya.

    Stupid move Harley is doing trying to capture the millennials that never leave the couch. No real motorcycle man would buy an electric bike.

    Id buy rice before I bought anything electric.... And I hate rice !!!!!

    I had no doubt of your reaction my friend. Sexbots, electric cars, and Harley's, what has this world come too?

    Well, I'd like to try one, if nothing else.

    At my age I've ridden just about everything, and something new might rekindle my interest.

    Maybe in a Grid Down scenario if you had adequate solar panels and batteries, an electric motorcycle or vehicle might not be a bad idea?

    Me? I'd rather have an electric ATV with adequate hauling capability and 4WD in a grid down situation.

    And it's a Harley. I doubt that the designers are going to copy a Honda and alienate all their potential buyers.

    I live in suburbia, and our garage has numerous outlets. I can see riding the bike for fun, and then bypassing the gas station and simply plugging in the vehicle for tomorrow's ride. That, and the garage won't smell like fuel and gasoline containers.

    You been picking and eating soy beans again? To much of that and you will become a soy boy. Please eat a rib-eye we would hate to lose the knife guy at PF from soy starvation.

    Hawgrider, I've ridden every Super Glide, Sportster, and Honda Four made. I was also one of the three guys in Madison to buy the new 1979 Honda CBX. If it had wheels, I rode it.

    The bike that stole my heart was a 2010 black, four gallon 1200 Sportster Custom.
