And includes a thumbnail sketch about Erik that's spot on - refreshing.

>>>>>>>Can I assume one of our brethren can get some pics and first impressions?

You may so assume Rapid Racer . . . .

Embroiled in project at the moment . . . SHORT VERSION . . . this is the most excitement that has swirled about anything coming out of Erik Buell's head in years . . . . The people involved . . . really, when you say "Dan Hurda" you are pretty well assured of incredible innovation and engineering . . . . are amazing. Erik has stepped up to the plate . . . not in the role of swimming upstream against the HD nay-sayers and HERO users . . . but with some amazing talent.

If you get in today . . . you'll meet Dave Wax. Dave is handling the Business Development and Distribution. He and I visited for the better part of an hour and his background (heavy motorcycle), keen insight into the market and technical proclivity provide all the comfort I needed that the basis for the entire thing is rock solid. The entire team, based on what I have heard, read and discerned is what we'd want and expect.

I've not seen this excitement from Erik (who will be hitting town tomorrow to man the display for a couple days) since the final stages of development of the S1 Lightning.

The bicycle is gifted. It looks right . . not like some convoluted tacked together abomination and . . . listening to Dave . . . got LOTS of thought. Two batteries. Standard charger connection. Pull up to the charging station and plug right into the Tesla connection.

The motorcycle just oozes Erik Buell. A huge cavity under the seat where Steve Anderson, just another design and engineering wonder who's keeping an eye on this, has observed is the BEST place to store all that crap. I'm not near as smart as Steve but did some test riding of various S3 frame geometry configurations and weight hung high or aft on racks does . . . . ready for a technical term "weird shit".

Anyway . . . more as this evolves but I was big time impressed.

By the way . . . while I was in the store a young man (I'm estimating about 25) came in and it was interesting to see the reaction of someone who hasn't a clue as to who Erik Buell is . . . he was really impressed . . . asked some great questions and planned on returning.

This entire thing has HOME RUN . . . written all over it.

Just my $0.02.

Court

P.S. - No clue how the photos got this big . . . no time to mess with it now . . . but perhaps a moderator can calm the things. In the meantime, enjoy the detail.

Glad you had a chance to check it out, Court! Wish I could get there but some tricky family issues has been occupying most of my time these past few weeks...

I also wish I could be there. However, circumstances being what they are, it will have to remain just a wish.

Thanks to those who are resizing pics . . . I'll delete the others eventually. I'm in one of those 18 hour a day phases at the moment but wanted to get something up for you guys to see.

For some reason my eyes were drawn to this:

FUELL We Deliver For You


A slightly adjusted version could be an advertising tagline:
FUELL - We Deliver You!

Unfortunately I won't be able to visit in person, so MANY THANKS for the pics!!!

Turn signals.

So, you're kind of right with 'lights'.

Gentlemen:

To those that provided the Fuell website to me a few weeks ago, thank you. I am Flow customer lucky #00007 and Fluid #005 for the S version on indiegogo.

I cant wait, my bevy of tubers are going to be jealous.

I jumped on board as well, with a Fluid 1-S. Now that I actually have a commute for work (to my own retail store), I can justify the purchase, especially at 30% off the price.

Nice Buellboy68

The best I could do is to donate to the campaign.
