Flash Kid On The Block
I was at the Honda factory today outside Delhi. I sat on my bike, a 125 naturally, but what a 125, a new model red Stunner
with electic start and fuel injection - 64K to the litre and only 2000Ks on the clock. I started the engine. Brmm Brmm sweet!
OK, so I hear you middle-aged BMW crowd tittering in the back ground. A 125 again! Sad old guy, what can you expect from a septuagenarian?
So let me set you straight: Honda designed the Stunner
as slick kid's cafe racer. It has style!
Though wrecked somewhat once the fat old Blimp takes to the saddle.
Honda are trying to fit panniers to it and find me a suitable helmet plastered with Honda decals. Sadly I couldn't find my Mexican scarlet and white Honda racing shirt. I think my sons burnt it.
Anyone coming to India, please bring me a couple of HU stickers.
Cheers - and, as usual, thanks to Susan and Grant.
FOR THE MOMENT.
may come later.
