I’ve been too busy with school to post an update and have recieved much grief for it.  Here is a quick update for now to give you your much needed mazimi fix you’ve been jonesing for.

“Phoenix area resident and motorcycle enthusiast Richard Gryzch got tired of gassing up his bike all the time, and he decided to do something about it. Rather than getting a fancy electric motorcycle, he modded one for himself — making an electric bike that is seemingly covered in solar panels. The motorcycle uses no gas, goes up to about 90 miles per hour and has a range of around 50 miles. There are very few details about the inner workings of the bike, so we’re loathe to say it’s 100 percent solar, but Richard does plan on extending his bike’s range of 300 miles. Hit the read link to watch an extremely tiny video of Richard and his bike.” -Via Engadget

I’ll have to do a conversion on one of these bad boys when I get a chance.
