  • Life behind bars

    So last weekend I got to take the Alta out on its first proper ride. In my last post I explained the benefits of this motorcycle and the excitement I had for EV technology. It fills the space between push bikes and motorcycles for me. I was excited to get out into my favorite riding […]
