Hey Reddit! I’m Mark Miller and I hold the fastest lap-time by an American at the Isle of Man TT -- an extremely dangerous, high speed motorcycle race around the public roads of a tiny island in the Irish Sea. I'm also a winner of the Isle of Man's TTZero event riding a USA manufactured Team MotoCzysz electric racing motorcycle.
Filmmaker Mark Neale, the creator of popular MotoGP documentaries "Faster" and "Fastest", has released another terrific film titled, "Charge", in theaters NOW through the end of the week. (Visit www.docuramafest.com/charge for more info)

Charge follows our American MotoCzysz team as well as other eccentric international competitors as they build the world's first professional hand-made, one-off electric-powered "crotch rockets" then quite unbelievably pit them head to head (with yours truly along for the ride) at the oldest and most deadly race in the history of motor sport.

As fate would have it, and with a very strange twist, it is not myself that carries today the greatest hope for mortal fortunes, but it is instead my young 40-something team owner and chief bike designer Michael Czysz who has just been informed he has cancer. Michael must start chemotherapy immediately and will miss this year's TT race which kicks off in ten days time, on May 26th.
Please feel free to ask me anything! I'll be available live on Wednesday, May 22nd, from 1pm - 3pm EST.
I look forward to speaking with you!
UPDATE: Thanks everyone, it's 11pm here on the Isle of Man I'm off. Hope everyone enjoyed our chat, I did. If you get the chance have a gander at Mark Neale's CHARGE Movie, it's cool I really like it. Night!
