Very interesting way to look at it.
So garsh, what are your thoughts on taking a trip with trailer? I guess I’d be stopping to charge about every 140 miles or so and the time consumed much greater.
these trips are not often but say I want to pick up a motorcycle that’s 1000 miles away..to have it shipped would cost me about $700 and won’t be an instant delivery like it would be driving down there to get it.
Definitely should be able to beat $700, but the real question is what is the Supercharger spacing along the route.
With a 3000lb high wind resistance boat behind me, i
I only got about 75 miles per battery, meaning that I was stopping by Superchargers every 50 miles. Luckily the route from Atlanta to Tampa had enough chargers, but 3 years ago it didn't.
If the bike has wind fairings on it that can be removed, it may make sense to do.
My boat has a Bimini that when stowed represents a 3ft tall barricade to the wind. I'm quite sure that sucked up a lot of battery.. My first hint to the range was when I passed my "home" charger 40 miles away, I was already needing to stop. Hence the recommendation to test before you go. I had to quickly look at my route to see if it was possible.
After about 7 charges on the way and 7 more on the way back, well even though I hadn't had range anxiety in years, I definitely don't have it anymore.
