I sold it a couple of years ago to get most of the money to buy my Pashley Paramount. I liked the ride, although in retrospect I should have gone for the straight bar version not the drops. The 3-speed hub in the dual-drive worked very nicely too - it's what encouraged me to go the whole hog and get the hub-geared Pashley.
What I really didn't like about the Moulton is the rear rack and the fact it can't take ordinary panniers. It might be different now, but at the time the Moulton designed bag for the rear rack was rather crude and the rear rack itself wasn't well designed - the tab at the back for mounting a rear light was only flimsy and soon broke off. The front rack, however, being mounted on the frame not the forks was great - very stable and you could get a version which took panniers too. It was also very easy to put on / take off being fixed by only two bolts.
The front and rear racks for the Multon TSR are really good now. There's a very large rear touring rack which is very secure and well designed which takes the Moulton large touring bag made for Moulton by Carradice. There is also a smaller rear day rack which takes the Moulton Day Bag.The design of both rear racks mirrors the space frame design. The front racks are brillantly designed as well. I have them on both my TSRs. I have Carradice Super Cs on front which work very well on my TSR 30 but not quite so good on my TSR 27 with side pull brakes.
The bags and racks are however quite expensive but good.
There's photographs of them on the Moulton Bicycle Company website under accessories.
