60 miles would get me a days commute assuming I didn't take the decision to do anything other than go to work and back, simple visit to parents at weekends is a 150 mile round trip and can't guarantee to be able to charge once there, 3-400 mile weekends are ridiculously common. Until electric can me...
I wondered about the trucks plan, drivers, logistics etc... What it seems to be is a plan to reduce fuel consumption (major cost component) by getting the trucks into each others slipstream without the risk of nose to tail accidents. Every truck will have a driver to steer the vehicle but speed and ...

Hard luggage gives (me) a sense of security and a deterrent against casual theft, soft luggage can be less bulky. I've a big pair of Givi (46l?) panniers I use if I need to carry a lot of stuff but also have a pair of thinner (22L) hard cases I prefer to use when touring solo (the Stelvio is wide en...
