    From all the groaning going on in the video (I'm assuming noises of him trying to climb up on the tractor) a little walking wouldn't do him any harm.

    Better practice the 100 yard dash too just in case.

    Well at least one person on that forum did suggest that hand cranking might not be the best idea for him. Said if not done right the Urgent Care office charges for the busted arm would be considerably more than the price of a rebuilt starter! And from the sounds he made getting up on the tractor not sure he would have the power to even try it!

    I am in search of a foundry. Any of you guys know of a reputable one? I was thinking of getting pricing for new non equal sided hexagonal receiver hitches for the EM Bike. Got to make it proprietary!

    They really need to be forged to handle the excessive horse power surges. But... and a big but :D. Quite possibly Caterpillar might be interested in casting steel parts if the run is large enough, 6-7,000 pieces might do it.

    That sounds like a wonderful idea! Maybe we could even build Cat licenses EM Bikes for them?

    So, using my calculations here we are looking at 250 peak drawbar HP for the naturally aspirated version and somewhere around 242.86422878 HP for the turbo intercooler version. If you multiply that number several times while eating 3.14.... pies and divide the sum of the square root of a lemon bar, you ought to end up with two hours of boosted energy from your five hour energy shot if you clean your air filter regularly.

    WOW! That equals 10000 HP at 1500’ AGL! Just think what that the locomotive version will output!

    Now if an acre equals 0.405 hectares, pulling a 2 row planter on 45’ row spacing (cosmic standard) we out to be able to hire out planting on mercury and be through in time to get most of the Southern US planted and all of Canada and Russia with time left over to plant some cows in the off season. Cow planting is where the money is. It is always farmed out to contractors. Farmers do not believe in owning the equipment necessary.

    Any thoughts? There are sure none in this post.

    Here is a link so you guys can fact chance my math.



    I am so excited! I have never submitted a proof for peer review!

    I have eaten a pear before does that count? The canning pears are not as good unless you have a lot of almond milk fresh off the hoof to soak them in. I have found that shoe polish will work on pears. It makes them change colors, unless you buy pear colored shoe polish. That stiff is pretty hard to find since it is not that popular.

    If you are in the innovative shoe polish manufacturers that I know some of you are, the color for this fall will certainly be bronk.

    Do not tell anyone that secret. It will become “insider trading” and we do not need the SEC poking around here.

    I have a small foundry and have been thinking about the design specifics to make sure design considerations were in place to preemptively control any copying attempts and have come to the conclusion that a mix of SAE,metric and USMC standards be employed in it's construction.

    I knew you would already have spent thought in planning this Ronsii. How it true it is that many times great new ideas spring forth on opposite sides of the globe.

    The EM bike will feature a revolutionary new Beforecooler to keep frame skin temperatures within acceptable rates. This was a monumental engineering accomplishment that was essential given the EM bikes tremendous performance characteristics. It is a vital component of the Brimborion Urban Management system (B.U.M.) exclusive to the EM bike.

    What about cup holders? No body is going to drive a 5.5 jigawatt EM bike sober. On second thought just make it out of red solo cups, than there is always a whiskey cup handy.

    The unequal sides on the hexagon are a GREAT idea! This will keep people from being able to flip the hitches over, and thus, we can sell twice as many!

    I think the reason for diametrically opposite sides of the globe having the same brilliant ideas at the same time is further proof that these ideas are being beamed at us from some other intelligence. They shoot them at us with a beam that is so powerful it penetrated the earths core and comes out the other side!

    Yes! We need many, many cup holders! At least one needs to be patterned after the 8-9000 series Deere’s cup holders.

    That will match the brownish/ green Gorilla tape that holds them on.
