A Triking, a drone and some wind turbines

Took the Triking and my drone out to a wind farm - one of many in the area. Took some video with the drone (Mavic Air) in the "active following" mode for the first time. Stopped halfway to change the drone's altitude so that I could get some of the wind turbines in the field of view. The drone worke...

Re: Stan Mott cartoon

Cute pre- Triking cartoon, Frederick.
I'd never heard of a Cyclops so had to google it. I'm guessing the safest part of it was the speed it traveled at :) "Tongue-in - cheek" article on it here https://www.conceptcarz.com/z21296/Cyclops-II.aspx

Re: Triking Pilot's Challenge September [new season]

Having just re-read the rules, this probably doesn't even qualify, but since entries (and flowery signs) are somewhat sparse, I'll submit it anyway :)

Re: All British Car Meet

I guess there are more Allegros on UK roads than he thought - close to 200 were registered last year https://www.howmanyleft.co.uk/family/austin_allegro Interesting website, many cars I've never heard of, but no Trikings, Pembletons etc.- guess kit cars aren't included, except under "other British c...

Re: All British Car Meet

Thanks, Richard and Tony - The chap with the Allegro said there were only 2 in the US, and maybe only 10 left in the UK - that sounds hard to believe, since British Leyland apparently made hundreds of thousands.

All British Car Meet

Took my Triking to the All British Car Meet in Portland, Oregon over the weekend. This is apparently the largest All-British Car Meet in the US, with around 1000 cars attending. Hundreds of Minis (it was put on by the local Mini Club), scores of Triumphs, Land Rovers, Jags, etc. I counted five three...

Re: Triking Transporter

Looks like you were right after all, Tony, as far as the rear wheel being 1 inch to the left of centre. The last few times I've loaded/unloaded the car, the rear wheel wants to go off the LHS of the centre ramp. I'll try moving the ramp 1" to the left and see if that helps. The first time I loaded i...

Re: National Micro Car Meet, North Newton, Somerset

Cool cars, Richard ! Glad you posted this, as there's a Portland micro/mini car show every year about 70 miles from me, and I went a couple of years ago, but somewhat lost interest when I discovered that "micro" was up to 500cc, and "mini" was up to 1000cc, so my 1064cc Triking wasn't eligible. Howe...

Re: Triking Pilot's Challenge September [new season]

Richard - I assume we're looking for signs and street names associated with flowers, as opposed to actual flowers, otherwise the server will probably be overwhelmed.
