On 9/27/19 I will be attempting the first Iron Butt (1000 miles in 24 hours) on a stock electric motorcycle. I will be taking delivery of a 2019 Esse Esse 9 at Team Powersports Raleigh and riding off the showroom floor to start the attempt. Just to make things more interesting, I have never ridden an SS9, or even seen one in person. A good friend of mine suggested the SS9 when I told him of the Zero's ergonomic shortcomings for me personally. I'm trading in my 2017 Zero SR and going with DCFC. If everything goes perfectly, it should take about 20 hrs. Of course, I've never been on a long ride where everything went perfectly so let's see what happens. I will be attempting to do Facebook live updates at each charging stop and posting them on the Energica Motorcycles Owners Group page.
