Reminds me of one of my favorite Comedies "MOUSE HUNT" - if you enjoy Road Runner cartoons, & slightly dark humor.

Great Fun !

I have a "Pull to Eject" embroidered key chain on the seat cushion release tab in my sidecar.

This one, as seen on the facebooks, is a savvy execution of the same idea.

TeeDub, fellow Steeds member and NAS Oceana, Virginia-based egress technician, installed this ejection seat actuation loop on his hack seat.
I love it.

Big assed CAT diesel generator with fuel skid powering an electric charging station. The irony of this picture is this is the reality of electric cars, sure no emissions but the electricity does not magically arrive from the world of pixies.

Any body seen a small enough GREENPOWER sticker for a sidecar rig ? After all its only 2 cylinder & slightly smaller carbon footprint than a few cars.

If a sticker is going to be placed on the sidecar, the owner should have some fun with it.

Apparently another big issue is going to be that the cables of the power distribution network are not currently thick enough to power all these fast chargers for the leccy cars. :-?

No offence intended. :D

But it does remind me of a cartoon years ago, entitled Tory map of the UK mainland (Maggie Thatcher / John Major era)

While the south and London were shown in detail, the north of England and Scotland were just a sort of bulge just above Watford.

:D

I wouldn't have guessed this to be a problem, at least in the U.K. Your standard household current is 230 volts (that's what I recall from being stationed in Blighty whilst on active duty). Our is 120 volts, meaning we usually have to have a 240 volt wiring job done in order to accommodate the electrical outlet necessary for an e-car's fast charge option. U.K. residences, on the other hand, are already configured for this arrangement. Are there other details at play here?
