Default Carver One tilting car

I was out riding on Saturday (Guildford>Steve Jordan's>Boxhill>Ranmore Common>Ripley>Woking) I was having fun keeping up with an R32 from Ripley to Woking wondering which should be faster in the twisties a car or a motorbike when I saw one of these up ahead.

So I had to follow it spoke to the guy at the Byfleet traffic lights who said he had given up motorbikes as they were too dangerous. Looked like a happy medium apart from not being able to filter - which brought a smile back to my face at overtaking the queue at the temporary traffic lights.
I didn't get to ask him if the IAM sticker displayed was for bikes or cars.

"0-60mph in 8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 115 mph"...it also looks crap.

Still an interesting concept though.

The standard ones are a bit tame, but the RS is nice. I've had a hankering for one for a while now. I thought it would go away, but it hasn't!



+ R6 are the best(except for maybe the 2007 R1 in white/black/red.)

Not like that green bogey you have.

I fixed your link pic.

That's not nice calling Sarah a green bogey!




I prefer to have this than a Focus
