So we had an ex-Alta employees reunion last weekend, kind of like a death anniversary of sorts.

I was chatting with some of the people keeping an eye on the community and one of them mentioned something that made me both happy and sad:

There has been 0 new failure mode in the past year.

It made me happy because that means we found most major infant failures.
It made me sad because we stopped making a very good product too soon.

Thought I would share.

And now, everybody knocks on wood so I don't jynx us...

My 2017 MX (S/N 0037) is solid. It's a dependable and as maintenance free as my 2014 day driver Tesla. Best bike ever! No failure modes.
Street legalized, its the ultimate urban assault vehicle.
Amazing how many neighborhood lots and wooded areas you can quietly ride on and nobody knows.

Wish I had a "reverse" mode, for the super tight situations.

I am beyond surprised we have not a single major manufacturer offer an E bike similar to Alta?? Very frustrating from us (consumers) that know the ALTA was a motorcycle just as every other one produced just with a 'different' power plant. Pros/cons can be debated...
