Kicking the gas habit pretty early in your motorcycling career there Abraham! I thought about selling the Blackbird since I use it about once every three months for a long trip, but at $250 a year to have it parked out the front, I can afford the luxury.
If you need a hand on the e-moto assembly / design / tyre kicking / stubby drinking, I'm willing to help
Good luck on the ebike sale - looks like it would go pretty fast (the sale that is).
Thanks Chris. I will definitely talk to you once I have an e-moto plan (+ finances!)
I'm not entirely ready to give up on gas either. I'm undecided if I should buy a gas 600cc with the intention of riding and then converting or instead plan to have 2 motorbikes 1 gas & 1 electric. I already know I don't have the space for both, but it might not stop me. 2 things I've learned in the past year of going through the licensing process is that I'd like to get a lot more riding experience/practice/training and I'd also like to try riding a variety of different bikes.
The reason I sold the VTR now was that resale value was very good, rego was almost up, I use it infrequently and when I do the risk of losing my licence with lame zero-tolerance on provisional licence is quite high. So, for the next 6 months while I wait for my licence to become full & unrestricted I'll continue saving money and avoid another round of rego & insurance.
