    Enduro Traveler's Dream Bike

    Fellows:
    I currently own a BMW R1150 GS Adventure motorcycle. (52-41 mpg) 8 galons tank, shaft drive, I was wondering if BMW will shoot to build something that compete against THE BIKE OF MY DREAMS.
    The bike of my dreams:
    How about a hybrid bike? India company Tata built a hybrid car that use an engine that works both gas and compressed air. I was wondering if the future holds an electric bike that uses compress air as well. I keep looking at my bike and take it apart in my mind and fill the frame with 2 sets of battery packs, 1 pack that runs, the other pack recharges (with braking, downhill, even with small solar panels and small-wind turbines in the fairing, also heat to electricity convertion technology...All integrated in the right proportions) Also using the space that uses the gas tank for a series of compressed air tanks.
    You have no idea how much I would enjoy if a bike like I have could switch to electric or compress air power in the middle of city traffic jam, where you don't too much power to move, no clutch, just smooth sailing while I am stuck...
    I also imagine my next trip to Alaska, instead of timing my leg strecthing and eating habits to 300 miles tank re-fill intervals, just stop to eat when I am hungry or tired and save so much money! I saw people riding to Alaska in bicycles! They spent money just to feed them selves. I was feeding my self and the fat pig I was riding on!
    If had the skill I would be working with the BMW guys in this project.
    I will be the first in waiting list if BMW develope an Enduro bike like this. For now don't think I would upgrade to the new Adventure, mine works just fine, and has extended warranty of 5 years. I guess I will have to settle for this and keep dreaming.
    Unless BMW builds a F800 GS with shaft drive... I don't see why not.

    By the There is US company buil60ding enduro electric bike, with plenty of power and 40 mile range per charge, max speed 60 mph...www.zeromotorcycles.com
    Stick it to the Man!

    All the best
