I'm not interested in electrical either,

Jeez I am, particularly a BEV ute. Instant full torque, quiet, economical and no more having to visit the service station.

Pity I just can't afford any sort of replacement vehicle so I have to keep my old diesel ute running for the time being.

Electric racing would be great. Imagine if the did on a track that is essentially an enormous qi pad...

Yeah, be at least a little careful with that bike Twinny, please?

 

They are a great source of adrenaline catharsis but, about a decade ago I took a mate's 1100cc something for a quick run, took me  a few seconds to just keep the font wheel on the ground 🙂

 

I don't use it in race mode on the road. Sow while the engine is still combustion engine, I have all the electronic bells and whistles enabled - launch control, wheelie control, traction control, ABS.

But of course   🙂

 

I think again I'm out of date but all that fancy stuff sounds great.

... those with a DIY ethic can have a hard time understanding why so many folks don't care... especially given the vindication of so many backyard tweaks eventually becoming mainstream.

 

The ignorant masses tend to react to those who push the boundaries in almost any field of endeavour that ultimately benefit society in negative ways; anywhere from background microaggressions to outright persecution; it's somewhat contemptible, no?
