Burbling Atlan… tic

14519991And there you go.  EV enthusiasts Terry Hershner and pilion Chelsea Liggatt crossed the US yesterday night:

They got stuck in a highway backup, shorted a plastic connector, and blew a tire… vibration from the bum tire had loosened a fastener, requiring an electric motor swapout.  Due to delays, Terry actually took longer to cross the nation than last summer, no record unfortunately.  Still, it’s faster than I would have done.  Considering the major bike modifications are basically handcrafted or hand-integrated, I would have hesitated to try without a sag wagon, as the current recordholders had along.  Congrats Terry.
