Pyranha Nano Review

A few thoughts on the new Pyranha Nano. I will start off by admitting that I wasn’t convinced by the Nano initially. Not by the concept, or by the original prototype during testing.

Coast to Coast in a Speeder

The Great Glen in Scotland is a beautiful part of the world, a fault line running diagonally across the highlands formed three long deep lochs (Loch Lochy, Loch Oich and Loch Ness) which were joined in the 1800’s by the Caledonian Canal, allowing boats to travel across the country from Fort William to Inverness.
