Dangerous riding

Here is a stunning example of ineptitude that just may top any other similar previous entries to Friday Fudge.


Half off

Want a Scrambler? Pay half the price, and it can be yours for 18 months.

So, let’s say you’re a sporting young Italian chap who wants a new motorcycle, but you don’t have the dosh for one of the exotic locally-made bikes that all your pals are riding. What’s a fellow to do?

Answer: Buy a Moto Morini. The company is offering a deal now where customers pay only half of the cost of a new motorcycle, and get to keep it for 18 months. If they like it, and want to keep it, then they’ve got to pay the rest off at the end of the 18 months. Or, they can get a newer machine at a discounted price, or they can give Moto Morini the bike back and be done with it.

What could possibly go wrong, eh? We’re betting Zee Germans at BMW are unimpressed, as their tax dollars are bailing out this sort of thing if it all goes belly-up. Not, of course, that any Italian motorcycle manufacturers have ever had fiscal woes. Oh no, not at all.

Sunshine days

Sure, every rider likes to see the sun, until their bike gets stolen.

Can there be such a thing as weather that’s too good for motorcyclists? According to Australian authorities, the answer is yes.

The city of Perth has been plagued by motorcyle thefts this year, and instead of pinning the blame on the bumbling bronze, Geoff Hughes, director of strategyfor the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council is blaming the weather.

It’s been so sunny lately, he says, that the crims can’t help themselves and are pinching bikes left, right and center. That’s why the city has a higher theft rate than other chillier spots, like Melbourne.

If that’s the case, we reckon motorcyclists in Labrador could leave their bikes outside running, and nobody would ever pinch them.

Down the runway

As my German is limited to scraps of words I picked up from my father’s Sgt. Rock comic books as a kid, I don’t know what they are saying about this rig. But, it looks fun, and dangerous, even if you aren’t flying an opposing Sopwith Camel.

  1. That Moto Morini scrambler, changed just with better pipe routing, and a decent bash/skid plate, looks like it might be pretty cool off road. It looks cool, period, IMO.
