Can I sit up front?….I am new

Firstly I want to say what an inspiring place the ecomodder site is, having been a regular “visitor” for many months, and how you all have influenced the direction of my own efforts. I really do want to “sit up front”, because I think I have some good ideas to contribute, not just driving techniques and tyre pressures but real “big picture”stuff.

I have a “bee in my bonnet” about congestion and waste, so even the most fuel efficient car won’t satisfy me, because you consume the road space of two (or four depending upon how you look at it) and you constuct and carry the mass of four (or two for some cars). So my principle interest is in motorcycles or more accurately “single person vehicles”. I have been impressed by Alert Jacobs (who I discovered through ecomodder), Craig Vetter, Amory Lovins and your “point man” theycallmebryan.

For many years I have been working on my own prototype vehicle, but after reading ecomodder posts, I have started a new development route using a production vehicle rather than the “built from scratch” prototype. It is this development route that I will publish and discuss, with any interested ecomodders, in the hope we can all help oneanother, or at least I’ll entertain you. It’s a fine line between genius and madness, and I’ve been caught on the wrong side of it before.

I’m based in the UK, so I have some different automotive laws to comply with (circumvent) and some different attitudes to adapt to, but mostly some different gas prices to absorb. Anyway best keep it short, just wanted to say ”hi”.
