Wow, imagine commuting to work on this V-22 Osprey like "motorcycle"!

I first started having similar hallucinations, when I heard about the Kawasaki K-Racer IV!

I see myself, vertically landing in the car park area at the company one morning and riding down into the underground car park with it's folded wings to the parking lot I still have there, that used to be where my H2SXSE stood.

Entering the office and passing the wide-eyed receptionist, used to seeing me in my sometimes veeery wet and a little soiled motorcycle gear, now wearing a clean and dry flight suit with a helmet and bubble-eyed visor.

Colleagues, that still commute in "grounded" BMWs (aka beamers) or Mercedes, would ask: "What on earth did you come in on, today?!"

Me to the open mouthed by-standers: "Oh, that's my new Subaru E-V22-1!"

One thing the "Internet-Age" so far has taught is:

"It's not the large, that swallow the small, anymore, it's the quick, that swallow the slow!"

Plus, I love Science Fiction...

... got to go now and pay my green witch a visit in the garage, as I have been "confined" to home office with no regular commute to work since March 2020 due to the big "C", sob...

Champ87, thanks for bringing this up and a small chance to dream...
