Can I have Christmas lights outdoors? Clearly electricity is dangerous. Chevy Chase told me so.

I’ve had similar arguments with people in the past, with one guy even telling me that it wasn’t safe for me to even drive my Tesla in the rain. I have charged my car in the pouring rain, and the biggest pain is most of the charging stations don’t have any overhead protection, so I get wet when I am plugging my car in.

My work routine hasn’t changed much at all. I’ve been coming into work almost every day since April utilizing test tracks, test vehicles, and other test assets I can’t drive on public roads (or at least for maneuvers I can’t do on public roads). Read more

Cheap battery storage is probably the answer. BEV batteries have totally different design constraints from static batteries for the grid. A Tesla battery needs to by physically small and light and energy dense, and so they are expensive and have to use a fair amount of exotic materials to meet those constraints. Read more

I would guess this comes down to incentives.  If financial incentives are for the dealers to sell $30K motorcycles, then that is what they are going to try to sell.  If H-D were serious about getting the dealers to sell the small bikes, they would need to set up incentives for them to do so.

“the state will need an additional 3,600 megawatts of power to be available during a peak charging periods, beginning “around midnight on a typical weekday.” During those hours, that would increase California’s electricity demand by up to 15%.” Read more

I’m on Jalopnik way too much. I’m not a good steady state thinker, usually have to do 45 minutes intensive then 15 kinda zoning out

At the beginning of my career I always tried to look busy. These days it’s not uncommon to find me staring at a blank wall, out a window, or at Jalopnik while I think something through.

Not only that but depending on your employment, sitting and thinking things through may not go down well. Have to be seen to be working, even if you’re doing sweet FA.

The 883 is an overall terrible motorcycle from what I’ve seen in reviews.  H-D do know that they’re in financial trouble right?  This doesn’t seem like the most thought out move.

I am truly impressed at this ambitious project to take a truck with old, often unreliable, running gear and replace it with new, often unreliable, running gear.
