Elon Musk Is Dangerously Wrong About Coronavirus and ‘Fascism’

I believe we’re all entitled to our opinions. Except when those opinions are A) factually wrong and B) dangerous to public health.

Tesla’s self-driving tech will pivot to subscription service — good shit, or just shit?

Tesla is often mentioned alongside “disruptive” products and initiatives, but the company‘s latest proposal could be one of the most contentious to date. During Tesla‘s Q1 2020 earnings call yesterday, Elon Musk mentioned that advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as Autopilot and Full Self-Driving will become subscription services, Engadget reports.

Could the TVS Apache RR 310 Birth a BMW G 310 RR

Another BMW Made by TVS? TVS has been in the news a lot lately due to the fact that it bought Norton Motorcycles, but the Indian motorcycle manufacturer has been in the big leagues for quite some time. The company has a partnership with BMW to produce the BMW G 310 R and G 310 GS. Now that could expand to another 310 motorcycle called the G 310 RR.  All this comes because TVS has an Apache RR 310 of its own. That motorcycle would make a lot of sense to use as a base for a G 310 RR motorcycle fo...

Not So Fast: Automakers Rethink an Earlier Start

The generally agreed-upon early-May production restarts floated a couple of weeks ago were clearly not set in stone. Not for everyone, anyway.

Indian Motorcycle’s Sales are Actually up in Q1 of 2020

A Feat in Today’s World Yesterday I reported that Harley-Davidson is struggling pretty hard to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the economy. It seems Indian Motorcycle is much better suited to weather the storm. Indian’s sales were actually up seven percent when compared with Q1 of last year.  Polaris owns Indian, and Polaris saw a drop in sales overall of about six percent. Motorcycles, meaning those sold by Indian, were the only area of the business that didn’t decline in Q1 ...

Captivity Day 36

Spent some petrol money the other day.  Unfortunately, still not on petrol... On a lark, and courtesy of some Adv Rider posts on phones as GPS devices and a Samsung special (phew, the stars were aligning to get me to spend some hard earned!), I bought a tablet. Just like a phone, only even bigger and not a phone! I then installed an app called OsmAnd which allows you to download open sourced [Author: Andrew Thomson]
