Yes as much as i resist it, it is the way of the future.
Well just 2 weeks ago I saw my first Livewire in the metal and SAT ON IT AND RODE IT !
Not in Australia , but in the West of Scotland while visiting my old mother.
It was "static" on a rolling road , at a West Coast HD display tent at the Scottish boat show.
( Porsche/Audi etc etc blah blah all had their shit there too !)
Bike in question had a Km/H speedo readout , the sales girl was quite at length to point that out.
You had to accelerate in a certain manner due to the inadiquacies of the rolling road I presume.
You could feel the "engine braking" as it "recharged" on decel.
The bike was not "registered" and was I presume Euro spec ( the Km/H speed readout !)
It was and had been touring the European dealers.
30,000 pounds sterling ( close to $60,000 Aussie dollars !!) the male salesman reckoned. ( No fucking way !)
The dolly bird biker sales bird also took some video of me on my phone , but I can't get video to the forum.
It is QUIET , the rolling road was making all the racket and vibration. It was sitting on a bed of gravel in what was otherwise a boatyard at a rivermouth.
