    Default Two-wheeled wretched excess





    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    No real progress since 1969.....
    Someday, I'm going to settle down and be a grumpy old man.

    Wretched is kind of harsh, but at $15k I'd call it comfortable excess

    I see that Bugatti and Ferrari have bikes showing at Eurobike.

    The Bugatti is supposed to be the lightest ebike in the world at 8.4 KG, but I still don't think that makes it worth the €65,000 to €130000 price tag.

    The Ferrari is actually a Bianchi with red paint, and no price as yet.

    as in all things, almost
    re the bikes... its art not motorcycles, though no 1 is at least marginally rideable and not entirely aesthetically disasterous, 2 unrideable and ugly 3 seen it all before.
    and all that Money and they couldn't afford the stock two-inch-over side stand ... Hey like my new bike? 30 K and a free housebrick to park it.
    When you come to a fork in the road , take it.
