    My understanding is that any registered vehicle would require an interlock fitted. Just spoke to my buddies who fit them next door (Auto Elecs) and that is no problem they tell me. You'd need a battery and it's a bit more of a hassle but it can definitely be done. I've seen them fit interlocks to Harley's and Ducati's. Cheers,

    Bwahahaa This has being going on for ever I'd say.... Long ago a fellow competitor had a well known oil company as naming rights sponsor for a few seasons and used to "top up" engine oil during pit walks for fans to see. It wasn't the sponsors oil in their containers as they couldn't get bearings to live on it. "Nah, its absolute sh1t" they'd say BTS bwahahaa

    500 smoker anyone?

    From memory these are/will be around $7500 Aus for the kit (plus any GST/duty/customs add ons) Not sure how many we'll see out on the trails?

    Electric bike at Erzburg

    Definitely the new frontier. Electric Cars, Trucks and Busses are all at various stages of devolopment already. Bring on the E Bikes I say - no noise (other than chain chatter) or pollution for any government department or minority to complain about. Eventually as technology permits just leave it out in the sun to recharge before putting away for next weekend.

    Not sure about this one? However, I do recall a Dirtbike mag article long long ago suggesting (under the heading of Satire) that putting V8 Vegie Juice in your tank would give you the performance of a V8. Resulted in two legal claims as it destroyed their engines IIRC Lol
