Right, as soon as you buy it, I'll check my overseas flight rooster to see that in person - to make the obvious not too obvious

Furthermore I have more serious to consider to buy the already mentioned ZX10RR and then we are talking.

Next pic will show my non-present chicken strips at the lizard. Your turn, hun

I Installed a new set of PR5s last April. Waited a about 300k to scuff them-up. Now at about 1300k, after a few canyon carving rides, no chicken strips.

Well-- if we're going to play *that* game.....

My R1200GS. Not..... *quite*..... a sport bike, but "chicken strips" still fear me riding in the twisties.

Heh.

Yes and here is why.

This helps get men to watch sports that would otherwise have almost zero chance of viewership. This increases ratings, which in turn increases funding for the sport. The increased funding helps the athletes train etc. The training translates to better performance.

Lets be 100% serious here. 80% of the men who tune into woman's beach volleyball are largely doing it to watch the woman.

Is what it is.

Agreed with everything Sassicaia wrote.

I’ll also offer this view: many women prefer bikini or cheeky shorts because they’re not riding up there ass, they’re more comfortable, less hot, etc. if you look at the evolution of beach volleyball, they almost exclusively wear bikinis today.

I know this is an anecdote, and probably a little too personnel, but my wife when working out or being outside in the heat would rather wear a thong and shorts vs. granny panties and shorts. She finds the thong significantly more comfortable and cooler.

6 door ladas as taxis are somewhat common in Cuba but I had never seen one of these monstrosities. Definitely custom made to carry more

I'm confused by the huge air intake. Surely the battery cooling system doesn't need as much air as a twin-turbo diesel ICE needs to run and cool itself. Then again, I'm no engineer so what do I know?

Yeah I don't know but I'll bet the battery packs can get pretty hot, especially in a scorching hot desert? Regardless, pretty cool looking.

Yes it looks like a really fun toy to have in the stable for those days that you want to tear up the wilderness without destroying the environment.

It's a hybrid... " The characteristics of the Dakar Rally presented the engineers with special challenges. The marathon event lasts two weeks and the daily stages are up to 800 kilometers in length. Because there are no charging opportunities in the desert, Audi has chosen a series-hybrid design. On board of the Audi RS Q e-tron, there is the highly efficient TFSI engine from the DTM. It is part of an energy converter that charges the high-voltage battery while driving."

That explains a lot. Thanx.
