    I just finished reading Power in Flux, written by electric motorcycle enthusiast Ted Dillard. Frankly, it was quite an exciting and interesting struggle to read the entire book as I can't believe how much information Ted packed into his book regarding this somewhat unusual subject. I really learned a lot regarding many of the vehicles, manufacturers, universities, races, racers, personalities and innovations that made electric motorcycles possible. In his book Ted provides considerable detail about every subject you can think of regarding the recent history and development of both commercial-manufacturer and enthusiast-built electric motorcycles, including the development of the motors and batteries that made these vehicles practical and the racing teams that did their best to make all of the parts work in unison and push the envelope on the racetrack. I highly recommend Power in Flux to any electric motorcycle enthusiast who wants an in-depth look at the beginnings of the future of... More > motorcycles. However, be aware that Power in Flux is not your typical large-format “coffee table” book with museum-quality photos of old classic British motorcycles. It is a 9” by 6” paperback book that takes you on a written trip from the beginnings of this century to 2016. It has lots of words and just enough slightly grainy photos to illustrate the discussion in the text. Ted's book is really directed at the enthusiast who wants an inside and detailed look at what has occurred regarding plug-in battery-powered motorcycles during the past 15 or 20 years. It contains facts and quotes that you would never be able to dig up yourself and you will be amazed at how much work its author must have put into acquiring this information. What Power in Flux is not is a general history about electric motorcycles that will appeal to the non-enthusiast who is just wondering about the technology. Ted has dug down to the “nitty-gritty”. If you are a detail-orientated electric motorcycle enthusiast like the author, you will love this book. I think you will be surprised at what you will learn and I am certain that you will not find another book about electric motorcycles that is anything like it. Ted's book is just plain unique. It is a book that you will want to read more than once and you will definitely want to keep it on your bookshelf for future reference - even if the information in it will rapidly become outdated by the progress of the technology.< Less
