    That is awesome, the EVs are a game changer, even from just a performance point of view. It is just such a quantum leap over anything previously considered fast/quick. And the auto driving thing is also amazing.

    I had a go in the twin engine model S. Wow, just wow. Absolutely amazing, my brain could not comprehend the experience for some time. The only thing missing is the noise, which is what I find gives the car life and its uniqueness. But I am in two minds about this, in this day and age a silent car makes sense, you can have a bit of fun without drawing any attention. However, a tunnel drive would never be the same.

    Cheers

    I don't believe too many people have used the charger at this stage. No doubt will become popular in the years ahead.

    Aaah Not the Hailwood Special ....aauugggh with The Conti's *
    Just bliss !

    P...es all over a 1900 Industrial Pump motorˆ shoehorned into 2 wheels and sold for the next 100+ years
    as a brand with 2surnames, pimped primed and marketed to those who just wouldn't get it anyway!
    With stupidly obscene levels of noise from near straight thru pipes

    *PS for those not aware of what the Hailwood Special or Conti's are ....
    well it 'doesn't matter' !

    ˆ ok I'll give hint.... V twin
    Mal wont need the hint for sure n certain

    Sure did 338.
    So did the Wacker lads from Morgan&Wacker here in Bris.
    Shame they sold in 2015.
    Was the world's oldest continuously serving dealer outside the US until then.

    I remember the Morgan and Wacker ads well extolling that fact. I never realised they did any specials or anything like Buell, thanks for mentioning. Being bought out must be the curse of success, Buell was also bought out (by HD) then a few years later they close down his line of bikes
