Life Electric: unintended deceleration and nuclear fallout
Wow, is it Thursday already? Sometimes you look up from your computer and realize the week’s almost over. And sometimes you realized you promised your readers you’d be giving them regular updates on the 2012 Zero DS you’re riding for a couple weeks. Whoops. It’s been a few days of highs and lows on the electric. I think I’ve totally fallen for it, but at the same time come to the realiza...

Life Electric: Chip Yates at the Ritz and sausages at Deus
Sorry for the lack of Zero DS updates over the last few days. Been busy using it to do too many things in too short a time all around LA. We're a week in to living together now. Much more insightful than the quick test rides I've had in the past, I think I'm finally beginning to understand the Zero as a motorcycle and, honestly, I think I'm falling for it. - Last night I met Chip Yates for dinne...

Life Electric: babes, n00bs and getting wet
When we left off yesterday, I was out the door to pick up Ashlee and go for an evening ride around LA. With the prospect of a couple hours’ riding looming, I was getting pretty paranoid about the Zero DS’s range, but actually looking forward to riding it around city streets. Well, I didn’t end up pushing, but I did get soaked. - Nearly 60 miles of riding last night. Over to Sean and Ashlee...

Life Electric: range anxiety and an adoring public
Not much riding today. Just running around Hollywood, 28 miles in all. Still, three days in, I’m starting to adapt to the Zero DS’s miniscule weight and silent operation. I’m liking the bike more the more I ride it, but enjoying the constant questioning less and less. - I definitely don’t have a future as a Zero spokesperson. During the day, I’m typically distracted by phone calls, work...

Is the 2011 Zero DS finally ready for public consumption?
A certain smugness is unavoidable. Let the less enlightened suckle up to evil Big Oil's fuel pumps while you glide silently by on your Zero DS, its battery pack brimming with electrons from an overnight charge that cost all of 48 pennies. Not for you the tyranny of $4.29 per gallon gasoline. Best to practice a little humility, though, as you'll see those gas guzzlers again 25 miles down the road w...

Gear: AGV AX-8 Dual helmet
I’ve only had the chance to wear this new AGV AX-8 Dual helmet for a quick ride to Sean’s house and back, but I’m so excited about it that I wanted to go ahead and share. Even after just a quick blast up and down the 405, I can tell this is going to be my new favorite helmet. Think of it as the adventure touring version of Rossi’s AGV GP-Tech, just with much better vision, much better vent...

Zero's new motorcycles don't ride like bicycles anymore
When I first rode the Zero X two years ago at Glen Helen, I was basically riding a weirdo chassis stuffed with a giant battery box, then fitted with bicycle parts and an electric motor. When we tried out the Zero DS and S models in Brooklyn last year, Zero had just figured out how to get the throttle response to act with the same kind of variable input as an ICE, steady throttle finally equalled s...
