Wonder how long it'll be before we have the first sticky post with instructions on how to upgrade Triumph wiring?

If I could find a reliable electric Triumph used for around $2000, I'd buy one. Until then, craigslist (gas)Triumphs are my favorite bike!

I think initially electric bikes will mostly have a different customer base than the manufacturers have now. This is a good thing if it gets more bikes on the roads.
