    A couple of months ago there was a post on the Brammo forum that mentioned that H-D was on the lookout to hire three managers for their electric motorcycle program. Maybe they found them at Alta and then took off with their new employees in tow. It has happened before in good old Silicon Valley. My newspaper carries stores about high tech companies poaching employees at least a couple of times a year.

    FWIW, I don't believe I've ever spoken to someone more full of crap than Mark Seeger. True story.

    Here is the latest update regarding the H-D Livewire. But every time I hear them mention that it will be a "premium product", my wallet starts quivering.

    Speaking of Harley, I just heard on the news that they plan to open an office in Silicon Valley to design and develop electric motorcycles. I guess they weren't allowed to do that in Milwaukee.

    Here is the news report regarding H-D's new EV development office. Good luck finding any loose experienced EV engineers within the San Francisco Bay Area. Those guys are getting harder to find than hen's teeth: https://electricmotorcycles.news/har...ilicon-valley/
