Ben Rich

Ben comes from a background in physics and a love of adventure. As soon as electric motorcycles were available, he went out and got a motorcycle license and hasn\'t looked back since. He used to ride a Vectrix VX-1 and now rides a 2012 Zero-S Electric Motorcycle. It makes getting around the metro NYC area more fun and environmentally friendly. He recently traveled 100+ miles on it in a single charge.
