As you know, we here at the Motorcycle Men Podcast are Harley Cruiser guys. That is our thing. Now we also know that there are other types of bikes out there and we do comment and mention them frequently on our shows. However, one faction of the motorcycle world we don’t often speak of because we don’t understand it and to a lesser extent, do not appeal to us cruiser riders. Yes, I am talking about Electric motorcycles. Well, here to enlighten us… Mr. Richard Hatfield of Lightning motorcycles

For those of you out at AIMExpo this week, just know that we would have loved to be there but sometimes, most times, finances dictate actions and it is those times when we cannot do the things we love to or want to do. Perhaps another time we will meet you all. Have fun, be safe and ride a Harley for us. 

Join us next week when my brothers and co-hosts will join me in the V-Twin café for some brotherly banter and long distance fun. From Tim buktu, Chris the Joker and me, Ted, Wrongway, your host, and thanks for listening to the motorcycle Men podcast where we stay stupid crap so you don’t have to. Ride safer kids.
