Ahhhhh, the Quota. A most toadish mount!
If beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder, then the Toad is most fortunate that love is quite often blind. I think the Quota is beautiful!!
There is much to be said of simplicity, and one would think that those unable to purchase a new (with warranty) "Air Head" BMW would opt for the Quota. It is simplicty at it's best, and even though it sold for much less than the lovely R1100 - 1150GS, it did not sell well enough to stay in production.
There is a new 2000 model Quota (red!!) not far from where I work, but I believe they want around $10,000.00 (U.S.) OTR. I have two bikes now (a DR650 and a GL500I), so I know for a fact that my wife (nor the bank, LOL!) will not allow me another scoot.
Too bad. Tis a good looking motorbike.
