What if they can't hear you coming when you pass them at 160 mph? .
You can't hear any motorcycle much coming upon you until it passes you especially at that speed. I nearly creamed a bike one day. He must have been doing about 120mph. I looked over my shoulder, nothing, started switching lanes and he was passing right by my front tire in less than about 2 seconds from when I looked over my shoulder to switch lanes. Then I thought I was surely going to see him die because brake lights were across every lane right after he passed me up. He managed somehow to stop. I guess that wasn't his day to die.What if they can't hear you coming when you pass them at 160 mph? .
We knew that. Those guys are fast. I have been reading The Total Motorcycling Manual by Mark Lindemann and read today there are 200 turns on that course. I can't believe the speeds they go on a course like that. Just call me a big chicken. I might would do the course at the Isle of Man on the TW but like them, oh no.This was just a spoof so as to show off some of the quiet performance of a pair of electrics on a mountainous section of the Isle Of Man TT course during the recent SES TT ZERO Race.
Don't take the title seriously, I should have added something about needing playing cards in the spokes as a clue.
The title was just to get you folks to watch so as to expose you to what the technology is evolving into. Maybe lead you down the rabbit hole of other thrilling Isle of ManTT videos.
Surprising how much we normally hear is engine and exhaust noise. With the electrics I expected to hear more flow noise from aerodynamic turbulence as in general most bikes don't have that slippery a coefficient of drag.
Not long ago a Tesla caught fire. The fire department was called and when they arrived they refused to put water on it -- it was an electrical fire. Engineers were called from the Tesla Factory (just down the road a few miles) and while everyone waited for their arrival the car burned all up.Are Electric Motorcycles Dangerous?
