The Electric Future of Motorcycles

I happen to love motorcycles. I should -- I own well over a dozen.

While I have a soft spot for gas engines, I have nothing against helping the environment. So you can imagine my excitement when my favorite motorcycle Web site (http://www.ironcross.net/) linked to a video of a 400-horsepower electric motorcycle. In the video, the builder, a government scientist, shows just what this baby can do.

I'm not a huge fan of laws to protect ourselves from ourselves, but if you burn out on a 400-drag bike, a helmet and some leathers is never a bad idea! Watch the video, and you'll see what I mean.

What's your favorite motorcycle? Let us know at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
