Thumb the button and the door swings upward with a satisfying mechanical grating and an electric motorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s thrum laboring. In my mindÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s eye that is my welcome to the Garage, as I fish around my pocket for a set of keys. The joy of reviewing bikes and cars for a Ã¢â‚¬Å“livingÃ¢â‚¬Â (I use the term loosely) is youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re a member of the vehicle of the week club. After five years running OneWheelDrive.Net and a few months on the car side with OutDrive.ca, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve never quite lost that new metal thrill.
So whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s in the garage this week? IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve just wrapped up with AudiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Q7 and that still needs to be taken from notes to an article – perhaps two if sheer size equates to word count. From there IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve jumped into SuzukiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s SX4. What an exercise in contrasts? And thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a BMW 535xi kicking around waiting to do some pick up shots for a review video.
Until, I get a sense of the place though, letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s swing a leg over the Benelli TNT CafÃƒÂ© Racer we tested this summer for http://OneWheelDrive.Net.
That will give me some time to get my musings in order.
