That's the great thing about pseudo-anonymity, I could actually be anywhere, shooting that video, in the altogether, singing to the top of my lungs while in an alcohol induced stupor and not be hauled into her majesty's court here in the US. Of course anything could happen. LOL I do know the UK has some very strict laws and for good reason. I lived in Ipswich and Woodbridge (Suffolk) for about 4 years. The MOT's were not easy inspections to pass, and heaven help you of you were asked for the paperwork and not have it, or not have the tax sticker affixed. I will say this, it was my good fortune not to know anyone from law enforcement looking out the driver side window of my Austin 1100. Glad you like the video..

I beieve mine was a 1968... white, red leather interior and nice maple dashboard. What it lacked in power it made up for in the ample spares available in the breakers lot. I also had the1964 MG version, front subframe rotted at the attach points and the poor thing was hanging it's head shame as the nose hit the pavement. Ah, the good old days....oddly enough, I really enjoyed both of them. They were worn out when I bought them, but they kept going in spite of it. No complaints here....
Mine was boring beige (tawdry taupe in the US), sub-frames replaced once after the green mist incident. One time we had 9 in going to see the Jack Bruce band in Leeds - the 2 smallest in the boot, 3 in the front, 4 in the back. It was also used in the family business delivering frozen food; well worth the £75 paid.
I got 6 in a Mini once, we ran over a piece of chewing gum and couldn't get going again. :-)
And now for something different. I believe Monte Python coined that...
I took the Eco-Exo out for a ride this afternoon. I did about 60 miles through the (now barren) countryside. I wanted to see how the new Bridgestone Hoop tires performed, as well as make a few adjustments or tweaks on my new windshield air diverter. All went well, I stopped briefly for coffee then pressed on and made a full afternoon of it. It was sunny, warmish at 56F deg, (13+C deg) and blue skies. For the 1st part oF March, it was fantastic.
I decided I needed a better mount for my "Twisted Throttle" tail trunk. While the trunk is very well made, the provided mounting platform left much to be desired, so I decided to make something better. The 1/4" pieces of 6061 aluminum worked for mount. The trunk fits tight and comes off with a push of a button. The trunk will be a permanent addition and will come off on a case by case situation.
The cleat at the trailing end is for latching the trunk, and the bar across the forward edge is for the trunk mount tabs. The powder coated aluminum has a much better appearance than the original mount.
That sort of worries me, David slew Goliath with a "Slingshot" and...... those "other" trikes ARE Slingshots..... I'm Leaning more toward: "LITTLE AND LARGE" or "The Little Engine that Could".
For the price of one of those Polaris trikes, I could buy a nicely equipped Factory Five or Exocet, or TR1ke. Not to mention a new Miata with all the trim. I did a test drive last year. It drove like a car, handled like a car, looked like a car that Elio sholud have marketed and had no heater, no defroster, no luxuries of any sort, incuding No storage space for going cross country, no optional convertable top. Here is what surprises me, nothing on the Slingshot was ever used to make a motorcycle operate, yet, It is classified as a motorcycle.
I am in agreement with that selection. Tomorrow will be a good day to "juggar my Naught" down the road a few miles in the Jasonmobile. I need a day to recoup from spring yard work. It is a huge pain in the *** but you can't say *** on the forum, or even print the word *** on here either. So, will plant the back of my pants to the seat of my Eco-Exo, rev up the engine, pop the clutch... "sort of" and go look at what the spring weather has done to the New England forests. I need a fun day out
