Cycle World Rolling Concours Entries: Moto-Electra
Note: This is the first of a series of owner comments about their vintage and classic motorcycles participating in the Cycle World Rolling Concours presented by BikeBandit.com during the Red Bull Indianapolis GP on Aug. 17-19 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Participants join the Cycle World staff on a ride from the track to a private lunch Saturday, Aug. 18 before riding back to the Speedway for judging. Bikes must complete the entire ride to be eligible for trophies in a variety of classes, as this unique event celebrates both form and function. The beautiful machines of the Rolling Concours also will be on display Friday, Aug. 17 and Sunday, Aug. 19 in the Pagoda Plaza at IMS.

MY BIKE: CYCLE WORLD ROLLING CONCOURS
Brian Richardson, Moto-Electra
I will be on the Moto-Electra. The Moto-Electra is a licensed antique vehicle based on a modified Norton Featherbed chassis.
Moto-Electra Racing finished the 2011 TTXGP season ranked second in North America for all-electric GP bikes. We were the first team to race against gas bikes in a sanctioned event (October 2010), and win!
We will introduce something new for 2012 in connection with the Moto-Electra. This will be the first motorcycle with an iPad fully integrated into the fuel tank. The iPad will monitor all systems, make the sound of the bike, send email, connect with the Web, provide GPS data and display sponsorship logos and information. See the picture of the tank ready for the paint shop, with the iPad!
