1 km at 10kph you got there in 10 - 15 minutes, 1km in the car, you got there in 10 - 15 minutes, (getting out the drive/street finding a park) walking would have taken you 40 minutes to an hour, walking speed between 2 and 4 kph. With the Hurricane you can drive it around the shopping centre and supermarket! Just need to fit a pillion seat for the wife mate :wink:

Stopped all the cars at pedestrian lights to cross the road, sorry guys!

I really miss my car! Oh well my decision, been told I'm over reacting. Well so be it!!!

Sounds like some engine mods are in order!

Thanks for your thoughts guys, Oh! Quismiff there is a 2 seater model but wife not interested and it is a bit wider.
Easier to buy second model for her. Heaps cheaper to buy and run then a car. :lol:

Have to be careful though as These buggies can tip over quite easily and should generally not be used on grades
greater then 15 degrees up, down or side-wise. :(

Insurance, take an 0 off the end of the cost and add it yo your home and contents policy,

Just made a quick DIY passenger and drive seat warmers for my basic as **** clothe seats! All you need is two seat warmers off eBay(LHD and RHD) and a 12v into 2(or more) connected, or if you’re REAL fancy you could probably wire it off nice and study and not pre occupy your 12v slot, but I’m electrically very dumb so here it is

The seat warmer

Dual adapter at the back

The controller Velcrod right near the middle compartment and hand brake!

Seat cover back on!

Once you have it on for around 10m or so it does get pretty warm! Once I get a LHD Warmer I’ll have two controllers on both sides of the compartment, would recommend for those without the leather seat warmer option

Those seat warmers are such a good idea bro!
I will have a look into it, would be nice for those cold days where you don't want to have the heater on and fog up the windows haha

That’s for sure man, those extremely winter days it becomes so nice, I’ve got two different types on both sides, my one seems to be smaller then the car seat by a bit so I only feel most heat on my middle back, the other seems to be long.
