I'm very pleased with it- 16 months and 30,000km without a single breakdown and only $300 worth of major maintenance (drive belt and front brake pads). I plan to upgrade within a year to something a bit faster with more cargo capacity, either a Piaggio X9 or Piaggio MP3.
And many, even here on FR, have dismissed us.
Glad to have it confirmed.
Will they listen now?
Oh, something's been confirmed, all right.
Just not what you think.
Nice touch, that "environmental disaster" myth.
You wouldn't be interested in a bridge, would you? I also have a Nigerian friend who can make you rich...
Why don't we get more engineers from our schools?
The reasons often given for a lack of interest in the hard sciences obfuscate the point. One MSM op-ed writer was so clueless he said "And then something happened [in the 1970s to 1980s] -- and U.S. students turned away from hard science."
I'll tell you what happened: The environmental religion gave birth to the Environmental Protection Agency. In 1972, the EPA banned DDT for purely ideological reasons. Since then, science and engineering have become increasingly polluted by a religion that characterizes the Earth as sacred and mankind as an evil polluter with our gas and oil wells, nuclear power plants and chemical refineries.
The constant propagandizing in the textbooks is driving many away from the hard sciences while condemning others to sickness and death from malaria and West Nile virus.
Science has become increasingly politicized with the global warming fraud. Man-made global warming is a complete fiction. So-called scientists and U.N. sycophants have committed the "Enron of climate science" by intentionally covering up the medieval-era warm period to make the 20th century look like the warmest on record.
The professional organizations (IEEE, etc.) need to expose the charlatans and let the boys and girls know that there's no room for politics in science and engineering. Then it will regain the respect of moral and ethical people who wish to contribute to the betterment of society.

Ya the study was seriously flawed, it was paid for by Hummer... but its a funny thought, though not true
