    OK, this is kind of off-the-wall for ElMoto, but I'm super exited about it. It's an idea I had about 10 years ago:

    - Easy, fast disconnect for working on the bike. (Depending on where your battery terminals are, it's not often too convenient to disconnect the pack using them. Also, if your terminals...

    I was looking at your video, and one reaction I had was that the compression seemed funky. That gives you the effect of, well, chunkyness for lack of a better word. Now that I see how you put it...

    Settle down, Sparky. :D

    Ride Videos - Tips and Tricks

    I thought it might be helpful to start a thread about doing videos. I've messed around with several mounting options, so that may be a good subject to start with. Here are a few.
