#31 We Remember Matthew Dieckmann

1 Sep , 2010  

This week Danny and Russell are joined by a full panel of Tony Schaefer, Linda Weidemann and Jason Holder. This week the group takes on the Inifiniti M35 hybrid, the Toyota Etios and it’s potentially interesting future, Honda launches the Jazz/Fit hybrid (but only in Japan), SB535 and the new EPA rating system.

We want to dedicate this show to the memory of Matthew Dieckmann who was killed this week while riding one of his electric bikes. Dieckmann was an entrepreneur and builder in Santa Rosa, California who worked hard to promote EV motorcycles. Our condolences to his family, friends and his co-workers at Electric Race Bikes.
