Brammo electric motorcycle to shock Barack Obama

Can the most efficient vehicle in America – the Brammo Enertia motorcycle – make it from Detroit to DC next week with just the help of everyday folks (and their plugs) along the way?

Starting on Tuesday, October 13, two of Brammo’s star engineers – Brian Wismann and Aaron Bland, will embark on a 10-day trip – coined "Shocking Obama: Brammo’s journey to present our President with the most energy efficient electric vehicle in America." While on this journey through America’s heartland, Brian and Aaron will educate people about the benefits of electric bikes and advocate for the Advance Vehicle Technology Act.

In total, Brian and Aaron will stop in 21 cities, meeting with leaders, charging their bikes at local hot spots and crashing on the couches of fellow electric vehicle advocates. You can track their progress online at www.shockingbarack.com
