Well, this is big news, right? I wonder why this isn't released in the more traditional way, and why they didn't wait until EICMA to do so, given it's less than a month away. My guess, someone slipped. Heads will roll. A blood coup is on its way.
Okay, maybe not, but SHEESH!!!
Now, re: the news -- I'm psyched. PSYCHED, I tell you. I was very content with my Enertia. Sure, the Empulse is awesome, but the Enertia serves my needs. Never thought I'd be seriously tempted to go for the Empulse, as the speed and range, while nice, exceed my simple needs at this time in my life.
But a two-up? How awesome would that be? I had given up pestering them about this feature because they always responded with, "we're considering it" and "it will drastically decrease the range."
I don't know if I could ever get my wife to ride with me as she is convinced that each time I return from a ride unscathed and alive, I have cheated death yet again - but that I am that much closer to running out of karma and ending up dead... or worse (e.g. quadriplegic or some other condition requiring her to wipe my a$$). But even if she won't ride with me, that doesn't mean I won't get someone else to ride. Someone younger. More adventurous. Less inhibited. And then my wife would divorce me, take the house, the car, the bikes, etc. Okay, so maybe I'm not that tempted by the possibilities of a two-seater.
Oh hellz yeah, I'm excited.
