I... uh, um. Er... Letting the side down...
(I'm mostly here to gawp at the build threads...
I don't even have a motorcycle license, and neither of my vehicles is diesel (Though at least one may become diesel in the future. See if you can guess which!) because I rarely do enough miles often enough to take advantage of a diesel. (Certainly not opposed to diesels in the slightest, but horses for courses; and short runs lightly loaded is not the course for a diesel, imo.)The Skud
1994 Skoda Favorit, 1300cc, daily driver; mostly in the standard hideous "Caribbean Green" turquoise. Runs great, when she runs right. (The rest of the time, it's hilarity, near-backfires, and random stalls. It's got auto-stop technology!
) Bought primarily because cheap, and I've grown attached to the oddball. Had a relatively easy life, was at 65000 (and change) miles when I bought her; now well on the way to 70000.Mayhem Maybe
1958-ish Bedford RLW, 300cin, project; "Yellow-ish", runs like a top, steers quite nicely once moving, stops via force of nature rather than brakes (for now). Bought because I'm crazy. 48889 miles on the clock, and hopefully many more left in her.
(The trike scheme in my .sig is somewhere in the pile of possible things for the future, amongst lots of other bits and pieces. I do still have some of my scribblings for the 2-stroke diesel triple somewhere, too!)
Dreaming a dream, and scheming a scheme, of a diesel trike.
