Sure, technically it is a “coin purse” that has a couple of snaps so you can clip it on to your backpack or belt. But the EASYANT Coin Purse ($39) is also a “skull thumper” or self defense weapon similar to the old soap in the sock trick. You get the idea. ...

Volkswagen - Autosalon Genf 2019

Apparently Tesla put the entrenched car makers on notice and they all woke up from a deep slumber. Now, just about every car manufacturer is working on an EV. In Volkswagen’s case they are working on quite a few.  Most will be… boring. This one, however, isn’t boring at all and is dubbed the ID. BUGGY.

This electric VW dune buggy will be based on their new modular electric vehicle platform called MEB. This electric buggy is inspired by the VW-powered buggies of the 60’s and 80’s. The ID. BUGGY will be a rear wheel drive with a 62 KwH battery with a 155 mile range. More pictures of this electric VW buggy after the break. (more…)

CSC SG250 San Gabriel Motorcycle Under 2k

What costs half as much as a Honda Monkey, is bigger, more capable, and you can get delivered to your house in about a week? The CSC SG250 San Gabriel ($1,995).

While I try to avoid buying things made in China (not easy, and I certainly can’t do it for everything) this bike has some pretty fair reviews online. Sure, it has rear drum brakes, tiny front disc brakes, and front shocks that look like they came off of a bicycle. But that isn’t the point with this bike, at least not in my opinion. If you want a fun little commuter bike (assuming you aren’t on the freeway much, or at all), the CSC SG250 San Gabriel Motorcycle checks a bunch of boxes. All for less than $2k! (more…)
