World service / not UK

It says and I quote
......"We're sorry but this site is not accessible from the UK as it is part of our international service and is not funded by the licence fee, as such it is only available to subjects of the costa-del-crime and free loading tossers."

There ya go, it's the BBC, so it must be true!:winky:

Sorry about that folks...

(All works fine here in sunny Portugal)

I think Terry has got it... (internet too slow at QMJ today for me to open Terry's link fully.)

Anyway, at first look, it seems to be a modern, electric assist, folding bicycle that would appeal to many motorhomers.

How about this link...

Neat design but a bit quirky and if the company doesn't exist in a couple of years time to drive train might not be serviceable.

I assume that is a joke... but if it isn't please tell me so...

This early in the morning (for me) my brain doesn't function fully but I am ready to buy one!

Brilliant!

Are you pleased with it?

Does it do all the things it says it does?

Is it very heavy? Easy to fold? 2 hour charge? 20 mile range?

What is its weight carrying capacity?

Will I be too fat for it?

(I don't really need a ride on mower do I?)
