    Awesome! I was watching the Estoril GP and was wondering when they would have a new one out. I look forward to it.

    I’ve been waiting for this for a LONG time. Whenever Neale got interviewed and took live questions from chat rooms or twitter, I would slip in a question about when this will be released. He always said it was about having the money to finish production and move to distribution. In my fantasy world, Neale decided to mortgage his house to get out of having to explain this to that guy on Twitter yet again, and that it would be worth it just to get me off his back.

    ill ride one of thos things the day that its the only thing available, until such time i have no interest at all in electric bikes. i love engines a lot aswell and i think a lot of bikers feel the same – its the howl of that motor, of tug boat chug of a harley (gross) or the heavy beating of a fast twin, the punchy bass hit from a single and the sensational sounds of two strokes, especially multi cylinder two strokes!!

    wanna ride a bike not a damn ipod!

    Finally – a motorcycling genre that doesn’t attract morons.

    I may have a slight man crush on Ewan McGregor ever since watching his Long Way Down and Long Way ‘Round movies… I did watch a two hour documentary on Troy Bayliss just because the netflix description said it was narrated by Ewan. So, chances are, I’ll be seeing this.

    I am so excited about electric bikes that I wonder constantly if I will be able to convert mine to electric someday. I love gasoline and engines but the ride is more important to me than the vehicle and to think of spending the day riding great roads with just the noise of the wind sounds sweet as hell.
    The reality is that there will be gas powered bikes for a long time so I think both markets can be appeased.
