Last week we finaly had some sun. My daughter visited and had a chance to take the car for a drive. We managed about 150 miles half on twisty roads (Hwy 9 and Chuckanut) and half freeway. Both were great. The car is civilized enough for my daughter to drive without problems. No tramlining, no bumpsteer, no odd behavior either handling or engine. Cruise at 70 on the freeway in 5th at 2,200 RPM, just right.
Please note that in this photo, my daughter is wearing the mandatory ear plugs. Between the pipes, wind, and road noise, they really are needed.



Having fun and ready for my trip to California.

Miles,
The side mirrors, from Breeze, are very easy to install. They are rock solid at all speeds up to 90 MPH (may be good beyond that but has not been tested by me :) ). The only drawback, and it is a very small one, is that they do not move with the door and I have hit my knee on it a couple of times while avoiding the pipes.

I highly recommend them.

Craig,
She came up last summer and helped bleed the brakes and has been very encouraging. She is an adventurer, ran with the bulls in Pamploma, sky diver, once fell asleep on the back of my sport bike going up Mt. Lemmon in Tucson, thinks paragliding is a bit boring. I am a very lucky guy.
