Bikes and Cars..

Post by vacant_space » Sat Sep 27, 2014 9:33 pm

Minority Report? Or not...

I haven't seen a post on this, maybe I didn't search enough, but what cars do us Adventure Bike Riders drive?

When you're not riding...

I'm sort of not ashamed to say I drive a Nissan Micra - I'm a family man with kids, and lately grandkids, so a car is somewhat useful; but a necessary indulgence and useful for the boot space and seatbelts ;)

I've been riding bikes since 15, cars since 21, I'll ride over driving 9 times out of 10 unless there's ice on the road - then I have a choice...

Tarry not, and fear not, chosen of the true;

Lover of the Lone Trail, The Lone Trail waits for you"

I've got no interest in cars so it's a £500 Skoda Felicia for me! A good little car though with only 35k miles on it when I bought it.I passed my bike test at 17 then didn't bother to sit my car test until I was 24.

Do me 3 on top and a 2 on the sides because I like the rav4. I thought they stopped making them ages ago. I've only seen old shape. Has same engine as the celica?

Anyway. I've got a focus estate ghia. Plod and paramedics use them so they must be fuel efficient and cheap to run and repair.


This has been my best car yet!!
54 plate. 187,000 miles.
