" Happy new year everybody.
After 32 Days of cycling and testing and retesting the weakest cells here is the outcome
Best 1 mOhm worst cell 5 mOhm
Best 26,7 AH worst 22,3 Ah between 4,12 and 3,35 V
2 cells soft
2 cells show some iregulation on the layers right beneath the outer aluminium packing... definetly not use them
2 cells got tabs weldet on ? so definetly not new even if unused... but they are strong so i only have to figure out how to adjust connectors...

While cells idling on the linup of 4 chargers/dischargers.. i used the time to do some things non ev related..
Like milling a new mould for a new plane i designed...
and
build a nice christmas present for my love..
enjoy: "

Well, it does come with a Blue Tooth app that allows you to do various things besides ride your LiveWire. You can probably use it to serenade the neighborhood as you ride along, take calls from your buddies and maybe even listen to a really loud potato, potato, exhaust sound to remind you what you are missing by riding an electric motorcycle. And it is free - for the first year, after which you have to pay a subscription fee to continue to use it. My Zero app is not only free, but it gets updated regularly. (Not always a good thing, though, and it doesn't let me make phone calls or watch a movie while I am riding along.) "

" Here is a link to a 17-minute long video detailing the features of the H-D liveWire. Kind of interesting, but what I really enjoyed reading were the comments below the video. The people posting comments really dumped on the poor bike, mostly about its price. Some of those guys are really funny. Most of them feel that the LiveWire is going to be a real dust collector in H-D showrooms - after a few are purchased by "rich dudes": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EKvj_u8C28 "

" H-D also shows off an electric scooter and a bicycle. I wonder if the scooter will be named the Topper? The headlight on the scooter looks like it is missing something.

" They sure do talk a lot about that smartphone connect crap on the website. It might lead one to suspect there's another agenda there (IP maybe?) if one were given to such suspicions...

PS, I distinctly remember one of the things that made me like riding motorcycles was the fact that there was no phone involved. "

For the kind of money that H-D is charging for the LiveWire, it sure ought to be made of aluminum. Besides, aluminum could act as a heat sink for the motor and gearbox. "

That wasn't there when I first saw that link. A lot of other things have changed since then, too. "
