I just hope they gave it a good wash after the beach video. That salty spray gets everywhere and quickly and quietly oxidises surfaces before you know it/

With only100mm ground clearance, as quoted in the handbook, you are not going to do a lot of off roading.

I certainly found on a Harley (from time to time) was quite intimidating to ride when surrounded by juggernauts, the trad Morgan sits quite low and can be unsettling to drive in heavy fast moving multilane traffic, so I dread to think what its like driving a Morgan 3 wheeler in similar traffic. The sense of naked exposure and quite diminutive size by comparison to the juggernauts is not my idea of enjoyment.

Those NZ gravel road eg 90 mile beach are something to experience, no matter how circumspect you are, you always seem to come across a fast moving excursion coach barrelling down the opposite side of the road that showers you in a spray of stones with resultant chips. Got to love it. About 20 years ago we came across on a completely deserted section of the 90 mile beach road a City of Bristol road surveying lorry, which was apparently undertaking a full survey of NZ roads. That was the last thing we expected to come across, great job in the height of NZ summer traversing all of NZ.

Mine should be heading to the dealer any day now. And then I’m guessing a week or so to get it registered and ready for collection?

I also know of one dealership in Southern Ireland who has a costumers car being prepped for collection as we speak.

I find it more fun to mix it with the rep-driven Audis and Beemers in lane 3 - and I suspect a Super 3 will do that well enough smile ... but have to admit do sometimes think about having a whiplash aerial with a flag on it to increase the odds of survival ! One accessory they dont seem to have thought of yet for the Super 3?

I tend to avoid motorways on the bikes and Mog, not through any sense of fear or worry, but just because they bore the tits off me. Endless miles of straight line motoring interspersed with idiot middle lane hoggers.

My sat navs are all on 'avoid motorway' mode - makes for a much more fun journey and often get to see some nice places a little off the beaten track.

If anyone is doing a factory tour - photos of Supers in build would be great ;-)
