Re: [EVDL] Request for ev links for SSI-Racing.com was RE: 2SSIC Race Report Sep 23

Hi Michael,

Would you like the link of
http://electricmotorcycles.net to be sent via email or
via your new forum? BTW we are a community that is an
offshoot of the EVDL, with a focus on two-wheelers
that arent glorified bicycles or push-scooters.
