Had a MG Midget first time in Germany. Great around the city and all, but rode rough as could be on the Autobahn. Did have one advantage on the Autobahn tho, when there was a traffic jam, it was very easy to push it forward a few feet at a time than to start it, roll forward, stop, shut it off, and wait.
Brit buddy in Thailand ordered a Mini Cooper, paid twice more in taxes than he did for the car. Damn thing was like a motorized roller skate, wasn't fantastically fast, but boy could that thing ever get thru thick traffic.
As for motorcycles, a buddy had a Triumph Bonneville I rode once in awhile. Fast. But the motorcycle I really yearned for was American-made. A Clymer Munch Mammoth. Yes, that is the real name. Now would just settle for a decent Cushman Eagle, converted to electric start.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
