Does it come with a "noise module"? I know how much the sound means to you, Ted.

It is great to see Patrick back on a race bike again. It is his passion, along with running tours.

Great job Patrick, you have come along way and you are a true inspiration to many.

Ride fast and safe friend.

Cheers
From the DSP crowd

Thanks guy! It was amazing to race rally again. I have to admit that I was not sure if the 52 Titanium screws and plate would be too much of an obstacle but it went good. I love preping my roadbook and leaving solo in the desert full speed. OKay I could only do 120, but I manage to pass many people in silence.. They freaked when I pass like a missile! hahah
The dunes were a bit complicated. that bike weighted 185kg. So it like taking a GS in full rally dunes. But I managed. Now I know I can ride the dunes with a GS1200 anytime.

here a few more pics
Thanks again for your good words. There will be more rallyes ;)

Yeah, a silent bike would drive him nuts

I don't think I'd like it much either come to think of it.

Hi Patrick, do they have plans of selling the bike? Seems with the batteries in boxes shaped to look like gas tanks it could be quite popular....

Great Job Pat. Thats a weird looking bike, looks like you have ammo boxed bolted on to the bike. Kinda reminds me of back in the day with G5 kawasaki and ammo boxes to explore Quebec.

Cheers

Great concept and execution Pat !

That's a good size rad on the front. Would this be for a oil/ water jacket for the motor or tranny or just for desert heat ?

Guess that Rocket must be cranking out the watts under full power so must keep everything "efficient" through the heat envelope ?

These machines will just get better and better...

Keep up the good work 'lectric guys.

Keep well

Logan

Nice Patrick! I would like to hear that monstrous brushless motor taking off. I have have two gas remote control helicopters and a 50cc plane, but the electrics are rapidly taking over.
