    Ken/Kent/Kerry Beauchrt/Beuchert/Beuchrt/Biker/Rider/Krider

    Kent Beuchert (AKA "TheBike") seems to be on a mission to ridicule industry leaders, particularly anyone working on the west coast or involved with alternative energy.

    To those of you who get the brunt of his wrath, don't take it too personally. Here are some examples of his scorn:

    Kent disparages Martin Eberhard "I came to think of Eberhard as an unreliable version of PT Barnum."
    Kent (as "TheBike45") goes after Steve Jobs "Jobs must stay awake at night trying to figure yet another way to lock consumers into the Apple company store. "
    Kent slams Bill Gates & Bill Clinton "(Bill Gates is) sort of a Bill Clinton without the hush-my-mouth ability to lie and wear a big red nose."
    Kent rants about Ed Begley, Jr "Begley's been an unmitigated liar"
    Kent disses Ed & EVs again... "Ed Begley lies big time"
    Kent ridicules EV buyers "These fly-by-night electric companies out there now are just milking the gullible saps who think they’re going to save the world"


    Possibly mangling John Kerry's name, someone calling themselves "Kerry Beauchrt" posted similar remarks.
    "Conservation is and always has been a total flop. "
    "Einstein wasn't so original in his thinking after all, it appears."
    "Niklas Tesla... was the fraud of the century"
    "The UAW...represent(s) a restraint of free trade and engage in price fixing"

    Free speech is great, but these sorts of comments get rather tiring.

    I've noticed this guy around for a while.

    I wonder what -- if any -- vision he has for the future? All I've ever seen him do is criticize the solutions that others proposed.

    ...MAny of these "mushroom" cars will never see the light of day, or at east not for long. And batteries cannot be recharged anywhere at present for 10 minutes - the fatct that I have to remind people that the houseold can't pump out that muc juice is proof that current media people and others aren't yet familiar with electriic cars.
    The idea that EV people will ahve to "put up with the hassles" of an ICE is total backward thinking. Putting up with the hours to recharge and finding a receptacle is a hassle - stopping for five minutes for 10 gallons of gas once every 3 months in a Chevy VOLT that costs half what a "pure electric" costs is called ectasy, not a hassle

    Some well-known names from the EV world did show up: Kent Beuchert (general-purpose antagonist), Alex Campbell (ZAP! PR guy), and Tony Belding (well-informed Tesla customer).

    Posting this time around as " knt beuchert"

    I see similar posts various places using similar names:
    Kent Beuchert
    Kent Beuchrt
    Kerry Beuchert
    Kerry Beuchrt

    I think maybe also as
    Kent Biker
    Kerry Biker

    Possibly other alias as well.

    I am not sure what motivates the guy...

    We could start a forum simply discussing "Kent" and his posts. Maybe "he's" more than one person, hired by the oil and auto industries to go around trashing EV's.

    Just for the hell of it I did a quick google on Kent.
    It looks as if someone is on the case:
    Kent Beuchert is a fake working for the oil / gas lobby and has posted on hundreds of websites through dummy email accounts (eg - kbeuchert@toast.net). He has been posting for six years on this topic - ridiculously if you think about it. He has made up locations in McLean, VA and Tampa, FL and goes under the guise of a computer analyst. Please forward any information you may have on him as I am writing a story. Regards - David Lassiter

    I've seen a few other posts like this from David Lassiter. Go get him Dave!

    Kent’s profile here:
    www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/A3OQV8OX2SQ08H
    says his nickname is “thebike”
    If you take a trip back into the Tesla blog last year you may note that (possibly) the same person appears to have gone on an anti-Tesla tirade before.
    www.teslamotors.com/blog2/?p=27
    Back in that blog the postings came from
    “Kerry Biker” and “Ken Beauchrt”
    I suspect that “Kerry Beauchrt” = “Kerry Biker” = “Ken Beauchrt” = “Kent Beauchrt” and whomever that is seems to be on a mission to ridicule EV fanatics.
    Here are a few more examples of rants from this “Beauchrt” character:
