Did the local paper at the time manage any photographs of the fire-fighting incident ? The idea of a girl on the back in her underwear shouting 'Faster ! Faster !' certainly sets my imagination going !
Stop it you are making me more jealous than I already am.Foxy said:Gday xbacksideslider, yes the Panther is a lovely bike to cruise lazily around the country side on. The Panther is a low bike, 26 inches to top of seat, with a low centre of gravity, the weighty flywheels spinning give a very noticable gyroscopic effect when cornering which adds to its persona.It weighs in at 390 lbs so is weighty, but stable on the road. I have'nt tested it for fuel consumption but have noticed that its very good. The manual states that a solo version gives around 100 mpg and side car 60 mpg. Max speed is 85 solo and 65 respectively. Ive had my Panther up to 80 mph and that was fast enough for me, its a bit like racing grand dad so I didnt want him to pull a heart/muscle!
