Default Takin' on the Anthony Wayne Bridge

I wanted to (& my buddy Sid suggested) get some amp readings
...while goin' up/climbing a hill.

I took El Moto down to/by the Maumee River
...to find some bridges.

The biggest bridge that we have here in Toledo is called the "High Level Bridge"
...or officially designated the Anthony Wayne Bridge

* I believe it's named after General "Mad" Anthony Wayne
...he was supposed to be a "trail blazer" of this area back in the "pioneer days"

From what I'm seeing, the Max Amp draw seemed to be in the 200A-300A range
& the constant Amps seemed to be in the 50A-60A range

Is that what you'all see?

Here is a video of the ride/data
