    Out at the pub after a meeting. Not the best scenery but some good scoots. We had two new people wanting to join today. A good sign for the scene. 20190901_192337.jpg

    It was a great ride!
    They currently won't let you ride to the top, as there is construction up there, making you take a shuttle.
    After we came back down on the shuttle, my charming friend Gary asked the flag girl if we promised to come back down quickly could we ride to the top.
    She said YES!

    Hey MJS is that the electric bike you've been working on, looks good bud, need a ride report on the performance and miles you get from a charge.

    Quickie report: it has noticeably faster acceleration and higher top speed than my (modified) 150cc scooter, which has now been sold. Not 100% sure of the range but I'm guessing 50-60mi at 45mph. Long-term goal is to build a bigger V2 battery to up that to 75-90mi. In the meantime I'm a happy camper. Love the silence. Also love the slow speed capabilities -- i.e. no problem driving the bike at 1mph or less.

    And I almost forgot: I can still get a bag of groceries under the seat!

    Took a day off this week to do a Northern Loop out through Hwy 2 (Stevens Pass) and back through Hwy 20 (Washington Pass, Rainy Pass).
    Took a few pics so thought I'd post some.
