Made the mistake of visiting my local dealer today....

And this was sat in the showroom, two years old and unused.....



So tempting, the two would sit perfect together in my garage, sadly SWMBO wants a new kitchen instead.

OOOO ECK, I LIKE DART.

I was young and stupid then. I'm old and stupid now.
We get too soon old, and too late smart.
I started off with nothing and still have most of it left.

Re: Made the mistake of visiting my local dealer today....

The only thing cooler than owning that machine would be...


...owning that machine AND having a friend from Oz that rides. So that way, each time you went out riding, stopped, and someone asked, "Whoa! Man, what kind of bike IS that?!" Your best friend could speak up for you and answer, "That there is an Uhrrbin Toigah, Mate!


nobody else just me then, eh? okay.

I would take a guess that it's the fairing, that isn't going to appeal to a lot of ppl
