    [I love the articles comment: 'The crew from Milwaukee is going to show off its first electric motorcycle
    tomorrow, causing scads of chap-wearing dentists to revaluate their alternative weekend lifestyles.']

    It could be the way of the future, I know KTM are doing a lot of work developing electric bikes.

    Wow! Never thought HD had much of an R&D department, 1st the water cooled touring models (inspired by the EPA??) & now this. My hat's off to them for this kind of work, but they'll always go where the money is.
