It's interesting to see how far these guys have come. Some of the previous electric efforts were fun, but more akin to warmed-over trail bikes. This was the first one that's really like a race bike.

I assume Chrome browser? That should be fine, so I'm not sure if it's a firewall or network issue. I checked it on desktop and mobile this morning (Firefox on my Mac, and Safari on my iPhone), and both worked okay.

So, using the same wi-fi connection, iPhone, iPad and an 8 year old laptop (running XP) using a Chrome browser work. My daughter's chromebook and mine (both 64-bit) no worky. All devices can view videos on Racerx (youtube) or Transworld (JW Player) with no issue. Going to do a stare and compare on the old laptop and the chromebook to see if there's anything glaringly different in the settings.

Awesome...they did a great job putting that bike together, it can only get better after a fantastic debut at the Red bull race. 50 bikes a week is pretty sweet...won't be long before we start to see the gap between the cost of one of these and the current 4-stroke bikes close up and these bikes will be everywhere. I wonder if any big shots (Honda) are quietly watching and hoping to scoop this company up and take it forward....maybe side step all of the time and $ to develop their own....either way...these bikes are here to stay.

It's working fine here. Not sure what browser/platform/network you're working off of. If it's at work, maybe they discovered how much time you spend here?
