As hard as I try to keep up with things, it seems I always miss something in this crazy little electric motorcycle world. And it seems that every time I finally decide to say something, the little buggers end up showing me to be the fool I am.
Since the news is out that Brammo and Polaris have teamed up, I thought I’d have a bit of fun and post on their Facebook page they had assignments due. 1) Hot rod a Ranger EV, and 2) a Victory flat tacker. I got a quick reply, “When is it due Sir?” After I stopped laughing at the preposterous idea that I, of all people, could have any kind of authority in such manners, I set about with a reply. After the reply I was digging around and realized I had missed the latest and greatest Brammofan blog post ( http://brammofan.wordpress.com/2011/10/26/brammo-and-polaris-ev-stars/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+wordpress%2FGhZX+%28Brammofan%29 ).
It would appear they are already working on hot rodding the Ranger EV, and were merely toying with me. This appears to be my lot in life, being the mouse. Heck, for all I know they probably already have a Victory chassis stripped down in the race shop and are working CAD drawings for the motor mounts. Well . . . maybe not. I don’t think they have any free time on their hands. But having met the team at Miller 2 months ago, it wouldn’t surprised me if they’d asked.
