    Took the old Corvette out and tried to get some good night shots of it.

        Nice looking bike. It seems a crime to even roll it outside when there is snow on the ground but...

            1994 Suzuki Cappuccino "Limited" Version 2 with Suzuki Sport wheels, blue bodywork, electric power steering and two-tone suede-effect seats.

            Configuration is front engine, rear wheel drive.

            This particular model was only sold in Japan so this one is a UK personal import.

            As a Japanese "Kei" class car, the Cappo has just 657cc and 64bhp under the bonnet, so is not as fast as it looks. But the turbo helps give it reasonable acceleration; 0-60 mph in about 8 seconds. Fuel economy is up to about 50 mpg Imperial (5.65 litres/100km).

            The engine is a version of an ubiquitous 3-cylinder Suzuki unit used in many many vehicle types, most of which are small commercial vehicles for city use.

            You can't really tell from this photo but Cappos are very small. The Kei regulations limit total length to 3.3m and width to 1.4m. You don't get into a Cappo so much as put it on!

              Here is my new ride for around the house.








              And here is the new Gator next to the golf cart. Needless to say there is a significant difference between the two.

                When I saw that comment last night, my first thought was "waoow... you must have a very big house to be able driving that one around inside your house..."

                  As some of you probably already know, I got a job onboard the ferry "Helgøy" this summer, which led to about 134 km. of driving, one way. Since I did bring my bike onboard the "Polarlys" the last time I went to Botnhamn(Which is where the ferry spends the nights), I reduced the distance to about 80 km. In total, I've driven about 470 kilometers going to Botnhamn and back home again. I had a pretty big bag strapped on the back of my Honda, and my Tripod underneath my bag. I did have a backpack to, for easy access to my camera, oil, extra straps and watertight clothes in case of rain. This picture is from Stonglandseidet on Senja on my last trip back home. (And Yes, I did put my bag in a huge black plastic bag in case of rain )

                      It is a whole lot of fun! But drive for two and a half hour with no other sounds than the engine of your ride, and I think you'll be a little bored. I ended up talking with myself for the last half hour on the first drive north. When I went home I had a headset in my helmet , which made the trip shorter

                      Some more pictures, onboard the ferry "Karlsøy"

                        You will get less bored, as soon as you're allowed to use some more power.
                        Nice pictures, brings back the idea to take my motorcycle for the next trip to Norway.

                          I like that "it's not impossible - just a long ride"-attitude. I bet you had a great summer at work?!

                                Purchased a brand new 2012 model Ford Focus station wagon 1,6 liter TDCi Eco Sport (wow....) today. With only 35 km on the meter, and the smell of new car, I had a great drive home from the dealer.
                                Now, let me show you how a Focus out of focus looks like:
