    Forget the golf clubs... One aspect of the current ME that I'm excited to see is the placement of the exhaust ports from the center to the fender edges (again). I'm an avid cyclist and ride/race 1000's of miles annually (in addition to my day job.) It was possible to have a custom receiver built for a C7, that would fit under the tubes, the arrangement looks like it might produce ground clearance problems and be difficult to mask. it looks like the exhaust placement on the ME will allow for a cleaner receiver install that will be virtually invisible when not in use. In my C5, it was possible to disassemble the bike and carry it inside. I don't think that will be possible with the ME, so a configuration like what is pictured for this C7 might work when I travel with my bike. The ability for me to have my Corvette and my bike together in one place is the ultimate use of my car to me.

        With a small frunk as it appears from the photos, it seems unlikely that I can carry a bike inside. We shall see. Seasucker has a system that seems bad on every front:
        - The bikes bikes vibrate at high speed
        - It looks aweful
        - You have $20k in bikes held on by suction cups!

          LightningBolt, What a great opportunity for you to capitalize on producing a cycle that will fold up and fit in the Frunk. While your at it produce a set of golf clubs that retract with the golf bag that compresses. Problem solved.

                Every bike shop has a story of a customer coming in with a smashed up expensive bike, and in every case it's the same story: "drove into my garage and forgot about the bike on roof".
