Welcome!
I was pleased to see that @electric rocket, like many others here, come from traditional Harley's but also realize how great the Livewire is. On top of that I never expected to see an electric cruiser community grow as much as this did. It just goes to show, build a great bike and the market (us riders) will respond!

Hello,
New Livewire owner, orange, 1HD2XAEB6LB801365, Colorado Springs, USA
Just added low profile seat and frame guards. Will be used as a 50 miles/day roundtrip commuter with access to level 3 charging at place of employment. Should work out well. I'm curious as to how many Livewire are on the road ?
Hope to chime in and contribute in the near future.

Welcome to the forum @rcmaEV! How long have you had your Livewire? Have you been able to take it out for any rides?

Less than 2 weeks. About 350miles so far. It’s used as my commuter to work and errands. I’ve concluded that I’m not gonna be riding with others too often based on range. But that’s not why I Got one.
So far I’ve been adjusting preload front and rear to suit my taste, added the low profile seat, waterproof backpack, and a second level 1 Charge cable (Amazon). Amazing how you can ride this bike down to 1% without a limp mode.

What a great pairing you have there with your 911! What model is it?

Just showing a pic of my Livewire. I also have a few other street legal motorcycles but the Livewire is getting the most use. The lack of heat coming off the bike compared to ICE bikes is an unexpected benefit in the summer.

Hey! First time Harley owner, first time chat room user. Brought her home last night and coasted in to the driveway on 0% after my first 100 miles. Today we did 100 more and I plan on riding every day for as much of the year as possible in New England. Work is 45 miles one way so this should be ideal? Stay tuned...

I have always wanted a Harley, and I've always wanted an EV...so I started dreaming of the LW when it was first announced and decided with the world apparently ending sooner than I thought I should bite the bullet...so I sold my 'fun' car and used it for a down payment...

When rides to 0... it goes to the shop...500 miles young...'needs a new 9V'...lesson learned...hopefully the damage is repairable and warranty will be honored...PS, towing, by AAA AND HD was a challenge!

Sorry. 12V...Not sure why I was thinking 9 lol...The bike uses the little battery for the computer and the other for the propulsion. When the latter dies, the former only has so long before it drains as well and when it goes, you can't charge because the computer won't let you...I saw a video online of someone running out of juice and having to jump the 12V BEFORE they could charge the main...I called the dealer and they wanted to come pick it up and replace the smaller battery (still waiting as it cannot fly)...

The RESS is supposed to keep the 12V charged.Watch this video starting at 12 minute mark.
