Boondocking near the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument

 Left Phoenix at 10AM today and about 5 hours or so later, was setting up in the Badger Canyon dispersed camping area located on a flat-ish ground that overlooks the Colorado River.  In my rush to get here, managed to forget to fill the onboard propane tank at the KOA in Flagstaff, AZ where I dumped tanks.  Careless of me but the tight confines of the dump area at the KOA distracted me I guess.  Still I have about a week of propane remaining so should be good to go till I decide to leave this ar...

Consumer Reports Worried Tesla Could Spy on Customers

Consumer Reports has taken umbrage with Tesla’s new cabin camera designed to monitor the driver by suggesting there might be some privacy concerns. While that sounds like the understatement of the year, we’ve seen other companies (e.g. Cadillac) deploy similar devices with little pushback. Uncoverable lenses on our laptops and phones are creepy enough. When the […] The post Consumer Reports Worried Tesla Could Spy on Customers appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Dunlop’s New Mutant Tires Are Built To Take On All Terrains

Mutant DNA You probably saw the thumbnail image for this article before clicking and said to yourself, “what the hell is going on with the tread pattern on those tires?”. Well, Dunlop took their new tire to Bruce Banner’s lab and he shoved it in the microwave with the frog to mutate this tire into something we’ve never seen before; and now it has the scales to prove it. Jokes aside, Dunlop’s new Mutant tires are here and built for any terrain or riding condition. The scaley tread pattern found...

Rare Rides: The 2008 Rolls-Royce Phantom Hyperion by Pininfarina, Only One Made

We’ve featured exactly two Rolls-Royce creations previously at Rare Rides. The first was the completely bespoke mega-buck Sweptail in 2017, and more recently the Silver Spectre, a shooting brake based upon the Wraith coupe. Today’s Rare Ride falls somewhere between those two on the cost spectrum. It’s a one-off creation from famed design house Pininfarina.

Could Kawasaki Really Be Planning A Ninja 700R?

Is A New Category Of Motorcycle Emerging? Yamaha just pulled the sheets on the official naming for their upcoming “R7” – a two-cylinder sport-bike with up-right ergonomics and parts shared from the highly successful naked Mt-07… To make things short, just imagine it to be an MT-07 with fairings. Why did Yamaha do this? Well, first of all, the R6 was scrapped for now(probably due to emissions and Euro 5 updates that needed to happen), but more interestingly I think that Aprilia’s RS 660 played a...

Australian lidar maker Baraja collects $31M B round to illuminate the future of autonomy

Lidar companies across the planet are going SPAC, but Baraja isn’t in a hurry to go public. The Australian lidar maker has raised a $31M B round to continue the deployment and development of its “unique and ingenious” imaging system, with participation beyond the usual VC suspects. Baraja’s lidar uses what the company calls SpectrumScan, letting physics do the hard work of directing the light. By passing its laser through a prism, different wavelengths of light go in different directions — and w...

This menacing $272,000 Lamborghini Urus SUV has $50,000 in optional features - tour them all

2021 Lamborghini Urus. Kristen Lee The Lamborghini Urus I reviewed recently had about $50,000 in additional options. They included extra carbon fiber trim and red contrast interior stitching. The final price of my loaner came to $272,193. See more stories on Insider's business page. Without a shadow of a doubt, the Lamborghini Urus is a ridiculous machine. Colossal amounts of horsepower from something with the presence of a tank tend to give you that impression. And then there are the ...

Elon Musk declares you can now buy a Tesla with Bitcoin in the U.S.

Tesla made headlines earlier this year when it took out significant holdings in bitcoin, acquiring a roughly $1.5 billion stake at then-prices in early February. At the time, it also noted in an SEC filing disclosing the transaction that it could also eventually accept the cryptocurrency as payment from customers for its vehicles. Now, Elon Musk says they’ve made that a reality, at least for customers in the U.S., and he added that the plan is for the automaker to ‘hodl’ all their bitcoin paymen...
