    Setting new records

    Hey everyone,

    I am going to set some new records on my 2012 Zero S ZF6, first with the bike having factory settings, and then modified with my race software and settings.

    I only have 10 days until Mike Cooks Landspeed Shootout, and am trying to raise some funds to help with the entry fees and other costs. Sadly it is not as simple as showing up and twisting the throttle. Any help you guys can offer would be GREATLY appreciated. I will be sending everyone something little as a thank you as well!

    More info and donation link found here :
    Hey guys Smiley I am going to set some new records on my 2012 Zero S ZF6, first untweaked as it comes from the factory, then tweaked with my race settings. I can't wait to see what I can do! BTW, I only have 11 days until the event, and am trying to raise some funds to help with the entry fees and costs related to setting national and international records. Sadly it is not as simple as throwing my leg over the bike and hitting the throttle. Any help you guys can offer would be GREATLY appreciated. I will be sending everyone something little as a thank you as well.

    Thanks guys

    Yes, hopefully they will be getting back to me on that soon. Scot seemed very supportive, as did Richard, the new CEO. They also shared the link I posted above on their face book too! It is such a short time to organize this all, I am very lucky we are such a tight knit community.

    Brandon, the Electric Cowboy, set 2 New world speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats and the National mile record for a modified electric motorcycle. All over 100mph!

    Since I helped a little with his expenses, as did several other members of El Moto, Brandon sent me this nice photo of him and his Zero from the Salt Flats. He really has that bike stripped down. That was a great job Brandon and I'll bet you are back at the Flats next year to break your own records. (Watch out for those Brammo Empulse guys.)

    I was just visiting my first motorcycle forum, the Chain Gang, where I got my "230" number when I owned a 1997 BMW F650 Funduro. There was a new post on the board by a fellow who rode his 1998 Funduro from his home in Texas to California then to Baja and finally Cabo. He posted a number of photos taken during his trip and one of the photos was this one of "a world record-holding electric motorcycle" at Bonneville, with his bike in the background.
