    Nipped out on the few roads that were grit free....it was freezing :confused:
    Hardly anyone out....there was an electric bike at the tea stop and had a chat about it.
    6k for a new battery :eek::eek::eek:
    Guess there's a place for them but they're not for me....that whirring sound just makes me chuckle...can't beat a lovely tasty engine and zorst :)

    Nor me. Most of the electric cars can't achieve anywhere near their stated range, then there's the lottery of finding a charger. Imagine having to sit in a motorway services for 1hr waiting to recharge drinking £4 cups of coffee. Technology is meant to make things better not worse!

    Someone pointed out in a magazine this week in reference to a 140 mile...20 minute charge. That if the 6 of them currently out on sportsbikes all changed to electric ones and went out on a longish days blast and couldn't find a stop with 6 free chargers but only 1....they'd be sat 2 hrs waiting for all 6 to be ready :rolleyes:
    Also with that 6k battery there's a 5 year guarantee so who's going to want to buy that second hand as it nears that point!

    Managed to get a few hours in yesterday, arse end of Cambridgeshire with a few more hills than surround the fens. A bit cold and I went with a mate whose not long passed so more of a bumble but I still managed to put a 911 and a Range Rover to shame :) and got some nice comments in the bike to boot whilst sat outside a co-op. Love it when that happens :)

    I would swap my RR-B for it in a heartbeat. I’d never be able to replace my old one, but marks would sure bloody beat it!

    I intended to tax my bike from 1st May but having looked at the predicted weather for Cheshire they’ve given the next 2 weeks as being over 50% chance of rain so I might leave it for yet another week!

    But the other 50% could be dry, for what it's going cost tax it, get out and enjoy yourself.
