I saw the electric bikes (on tv) at the TT and the 80pmh+ circuit on the road legal electric bike and apart from the weird sound effects thought the bike wasn't at all bad.
Right, just off to plug me Guzzi in....
" Yup, the day of the Amish is coming!...."

Todays headlines....

"New diesel and petrol cars face 2040 ban"

Are the Faceless ones reading this forum and pinching our thoughts???
