In Honor of National Drive Electric Week: Terry Hershner Earns an Iron Butt!

In electric vehicle circles, Terry Hershner is our Chuck Yeager. He and his Zero motorcycle continue to pioneer new ground and break records everywhere they go.

Strangely enough, Terry's biggest nemesis/arch rival/Achilles' heel is Texas, but that is a story for another day.

Same bike in an earlier state of evolution - aerodynamics count!

This week, Terry earned the Iron Butt Award for traveling 1000 miles in less than twenty-four hours, and he did it on an electric motorcycle. He's a regular guy who keeps proving that electric vehicles can compete in the real world. His most recent victory before this came with winning the Vetter Challenge.

Terry, thank you for pushing the envelope and breaking stereotypes everywhere you go! Click the links to learn more:
