Hi all

I just read this article on a plane last week, and thought the Vara came out great. In fact the oly down was no bungie clips on the vara compared to the BMUU - bit unfair as the BMUU had full luggage.

Most journalists do see to quote the same expression - pig ugly - which implies that it is either very ugly to all or that they are all following the herd and cant form a real opinion.

It seems bizarre as the BMUU is really ugly, somewhat unfinished, in a sort of a project in the making kind of a way. I actually like that about it. The Vara is much more polished in its plastic finishes, and I think it could afford to be more ugly.

These articles do influence me as I have little time or patience to form my own views from lots of test rides, which means I am back on track for a new Vara. I believe that I would miss the power, comfort, and pillion if I changed.
