Electric Harley is smokin
« on: March 11, 2021, 09:01:00 AM »

In the worst way.

Things go wrong with the electric bikes starts burning and no one seems to have any idea how to put it out. Were do you cut the power cable from battery's  :nixweiss:

Don't as a rule post things from FB but this electric Harley burning is something that's going to effect a lot of people down the road.

Same things and worse happen with EV Cars, Lithium Batteries once they catch fire very difficult to extinguish.

Bike did not look like it had the "Grill & Ride" option.

Figured from past HD experience that the rider would get shocked - not at the price of the bike - shocked while riding.  This catching on fire deal kicks it up a notch.

Did the mechanic that walked out there with the impact tell the firefighter "they all do that" and went back to the shop?

Weird. Looks like high voltage gloves laying on the ground there. We have those at work for specific uses.

I wonder why PEOSHA requires an annual fit test for SCBA's

Saw the video the day it came out. We were on Vaca in the keys. On way home yesterday we stopped at the Miami HD store to kill some time before our flight. Told the salesman about it. They hadn't seen the video. Told them to call that dealership to maybe figure out what not to do...
