you'd think the lids on the cases would be solar power...... along with his jacket, seat,number plates etc...

Good to see Patrick is riding in a rally again. Especially back in the desert.
The electric bike looks awsome. Looking forward to seeing more and wishing Patrick the best.

100 km range (in sand). Gonna guess 150 on trails around here...3 hours for a full charge. Not too shabby...Pat says the torque is awesome, it has gears unlike most electric bikes....

Hopefully someday something like this is available to the public at a reasonable price....
