Project LiveWire Arrives!
… The electric Harley sitting on a small test track behind the company’s development center in Wauwatosa, outside Milwaukee, isn’t going to be confused with some of the putt-putt electrics on the market today. The design of LiveWire is gnarly enough to be Harley: it’s angular and agile, with a cast-aluminum exoskeleton sitting on a short wheelbase with 18-in. tires. The tires are a little bigger than normal and the seat a little higher, so the cycle can more easily jump curbs and handle the potholes of New Delhi or New York City. The turn signals and rear lamp are glowing LEDs, like those found on high-end Audis. What’s missing is the steroidal engine sitting under the rider–replaced by a lithium-ion-battery-powered motor.

We have a lot of activities in the next five days. On Saturday June 21 NYC Harley-Davidson is having its Charity Bikini Bike Wash to benefit SHAREing and CAREing, so please show up and support the dealership. Have your bike washed. Listen to some rock and roll. Please wear your colors.
On Sunday June 22 we have a ride going up to Newburgh, NY to Motorcyclepedia. If you have never been there, you owe it to yourself to come and see this place – motorcycles of all kinds and from all years. It’s a great place. Come to the diner at 8am with a full tank of gas and your E-Zpass. Have breakfast then we ride.
