Nothing to do with food!

Storm Ali may be over but the forecast for the weekend is rubbish, so what to do? Drive 230 miles to start a weekend tour of the borders and Edinburg seems a good idea. The Carver owners club are having an outing so I am joining them

Oh, this will be my transport ????

Wow, I'd forgotten the future of transport things written about those when new. An awsome vehicle answer to a question no one had.

Can't wait for the report. They must be 'exciting' to drive at the best of times.

 

Edited to add, if I wanted something pretending to be a bike a Carver would certainly be well above the current goping option. I mean at least a carver has a roof.

I would have one of those in a heartbeat.  The Carver looks like good fun to drive on the open road but once you've been on a motorbike and discovered the joy of filtering through traffic, anything with three wheels seems like the worst of both worlds
