It is a difference of available torque and the ability to modulate engine response vs. hydraulic line pressure, the latter of which is instantaneous vs. responsiveness of the powertrain.

Why Arcimoto Stock Sank 26.2% in March
The Motley Fool|2 days ago

Yes! I'm telling OP!

Riding a motorcycle seems to be a bad time to try to multitask, especially since some people say "Multitasking is doing two things poorly at once."

I wonder if my ex tried to multitask.

The OP brought up the comparison of 4-wheeled vehicle manufacturing to 3, and I was happy to point out the absurdity of safety being of utmost importance unless it's arbitrarily not.

The Acri needs to be closer to $12k for the very reason that most of the safety requirements don't apply to it, which should save a lot of money in development and manufacturing costs.

I can walk and chew gum, but that's about the only thing I can multitask well.

... reminds me of a time I was playing Gran Turismo with my friend, and somehow the controller and steering wheel got messed up such that acceleration/braking input worked only on the controller, and steering only on the steering wheel. Rather than fix it, we wasted time trying to coordinate our efforts, with me in charge of acceleration and braking, and my friend steering. We got pretty good!

The price asked is dependent on production volume. Speaking of safety:

Remember, the first batch of SRKs were sold and purchased for $40,000.

In either case a computer can and does modulate faster than a human.

Also rear power slides are pretty easy to save. Locking the front wheel isnít so easy to save Lock the front wheel while leaned over and it is all over for mortals.

I imagine that it is 100.00% safe for me because I will never be associated with one. Therefore their statement is false because it is impossible to be safer, let alone much safer, therefore Aptera is run by liars!

If I ever had time to spare, I would set up a desk above Dad's old treadmill and stream myself playing WoW while walking on a treadmill and using a beer helmet, just never with alcohol.

Saturday night I bought Winco's biggest salad and underscored a recent frustration.

I spend far too much of my time eating!

I was the slowest person that I knew before I joined the Army. I also ate more than anyone I knew. I eat less now, but I still spend too long eating. Before I started writing progress reports I bought some green V8 and protein shakes.

Before I went to bed I ate that big Winco salad and it took two hours.

Two hours!

How high would eating a salad rank on your favorite activities?!

I missed sleep because of a salad!

My first experiment would be chugging Slim Fast shakes with the confounding variable of using a computer on a treadmill, but since I threw up when I did this before, I don't see the variables canceling each other.

I told a friend that multitasking quote the other day and she responded "Obviously you are doing something wrong."

I don't know how to eat while gaming. Cereal, so I can eat and drink with one hand without looking?

As long as I don't spill on my keyboard!

I couldn't even do that with my current setup, sitting in an old recliner, with my television on a stand.

I once read a book on time management and it asked "How much brainpower do you really need to eat that sandwich?!"

I can watch YouTube and browse Imgur and Ecomodder while eating, but I cannot write anything, and if people keep messaging me while I am trying to work I need to turn off notifications so I can focus.

That got problematic with my girlfriend while I wrote reports. What was I supposed to do, tell her "Still writing reports!" each time she asked for an update?

She asked for updates 10-20 times!



Have any of you been productive today? What was it like?

I posted some on Ecomodder. I'm trying to find a lug wrench to fit the Metro so I can spray-paint the wheels, fruitlessly.

It's fine if computers make something better like say braking, but that doesn't equate to a mandate in my opinion. Set a threshold if you want that something has to be able to achieve to be operated on the roads, but a motorcycle with or without ABS stopping in 80 vs 90 feet or whatever is nothing compared to a 60,000 pound semi taking 5 times that distance to stop. Let the decision on what level of gizmos and cost and complexity to the driver assuming he's not a complete menace to anyone else on the road. There are always better tires, better pads, better rotors, better calipers, all that would lead to better stopping distances. There should be room for something not intended to ever be driven hard to have a simple and low cost braking system if that's what the buyer wants.
