Episode 67 for March 20, 2011 Not in the ballpark, and thatâ€™s ok!
American muscle bike, hydrogen fuel cells and Zero gets far, far more than zero! This week, after a weekâ€™s hiatus, James and Chris are back to explain exactly what the new Motus will cost, and of course to delve into all the deep and detailed tech specs. After that, we get a science lesson on hydrogen - and by science we mean the guys speculate, guess and postulate on fuel cells. Zero wows us again, this time not with a new bike or model, but with investors tossing more and more cash at Zero. Pretty soon theyâ€™re going to have to start burning the cash because itâ€™s got to be taking up all the room. James doensâ€™t get all wacky and political, yet utters the words â€œgood for the fedâ€, as we learn that thereâ€™s a bill pending to block the use of federal funds for motorcycle-only checkpoints. Japan has more on its plate than making sure the USA gets their toys; most of Japanâ€™s motorcycle manufacturers shut down production for the time being. iTunes makes donating to Japanâ€™s relief efforts easy! https://buy.itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZFinance.woa/wa/buyCharityGiftWizard Lots and lots of feedback!
