What an awesome video clip! You could tell the Zipper was really moving and it wasn't hard to imagine what was happening onboard. Was that you riding? Thanks a tonne for posting the video.

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!

I actually started feeling nauseous watching the vid!

Havent ridden a Zipper for nearly 10 years now - I'm getting a bit "long in the tooth",,,,,but I guess when my girls get older, I'll find myself back on it again one day!!!

Thanks for the awesome clip.

Cheers,

you really can hear the difference with the AC motors compared to the quieter hydraulic drives on that video.

Looking sharp with those familiar colours.
