Quasar

I've always considered the Quasar to be ungainly. It just doesn't look right. It looks long and top-heavy. And it's ugly. The view from the front isn't too bad but from every other angle it's a mess.

So last week I was fortunate enough to find myself in The National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham and in the lobby was an example of this rare machine (less than 30 were made).

The photos I've seen don't quite do it justice - it's even more repulsive in the flesh. But it had a sign on it inviting visitors to sit into it. Initially, I was disinclined to do this but then I managed to overcome my prejudice and climb aboard.

And I was hooked! For all its ugliness on the outside, it feels fantastic to sit in! It felt a bit like the Akira Bike and a bit like a fighter-jet and it was very easy to imagine how cool it would be on long motorway journeys. I'd love to have a go in one.
