Electric Quad Bikes

When I first started looking for electric quad bikes all I could find were kiddies toys. More recently I thought that with Honda phasing out petrol and diesel motors in their cars that quad bikes were a dead cert to be in the forefront. After-all electric powered motorbikes are becoming commonplace – even Harley Davidson has one in their range – and it’s pretty good by all accounts. Imagine being able to check your livestock – quietly – or ride into the forest looking for wildlife – quietly – or just doing your shopping – visiting nearby mates or taking a run out to collect your newspaper with fuss-free electric power which has been re-charged overnight.

The older I get – and the more duff joints I get – the more interested I get so I kept looking and stumbled across this British built Keypitts Eco Quad Bike which might fill the bill. The proof would no doubt be in the pudding as battery life – range and reliability as well as price would all need to be assessed and if it could tow our sailing dinghy along to the loch we could even be on a winner.

If we ignore the nutter road tester who insists on using it as a plaything – the wee bike could probably be a serious bit of kit. But — I don’t know if there’s room for Helen AND a big dog on the back.

cheers – Don

Only joking – Loki got his Walk —

It’s much easier underfoot to walk in the higher woods and safer too in this pandemic as there are few people out and about.

Loki n I stayed local today – walked out along the riverside to the church and came home by the main street. The pavements are treacherous – like glass. We preferred to risk the traffic and stepped out along the main roads which had been salted and gritted.

It’s just a matter of time now with the weather warming before this snow has gone – and about time too —
my X-ADV750 is under there somewhere —

Sunday Morning – Walking the Dog

With 96% sleet and one degree out there I can hardly blame him – wouldn’t you prefer the rug in front of a log fire?
