Moto Morini Kanguro agus Dart

Most people tend to plump for one of the well-known Morini Sport or Strada models. Ach ar an taobh eile den scála go mbainfidh tú teacht ar an Dart Super-sleek agus an rufty-tufty Kanguro. Mar sin, conas a rinne a thagann Ken Philp chun féin araon?

Chonaic mé an chéad Kanguro ag Earls Court i 1982, agus chuaigh mar a bhí sé ina easbhóthair V-cúpla. Bhí fadhb leighis agam i 1984, mar sin fuair réidh roinnt rothair agus cheannaigh an ceann seo, an chéad Kanguro a bhí NLM sa siopa.

choinnigh sé ach ag dul aon uair a theastaigh uaim é a! Thug sé dom a lán de pléisiúir easbhóthair, in ainneoin a mheáchan, agus mé shortie – 5'5. fuair mé réidh ach é i 2003 toisc go bhfuil mé ach 15% cumas scamhóg anois.

Ní féidir liom a rá go raibh aon rud a RAIBH mé NACH mhaith mar gheall air. Úsáid mé é le haghaidh enduros, rian-marcaíocht, Weston Trá Rás, trialacha fad-achair, agus mar sin de, agus aon uair amháin clúdaithe 720 míle i 20 uair an chloig ar imeacht MCC.

San iomlán Clúdaithe mé faoi 16,000 míle. Ní raibh aon fadhbanna dáiríre, ach amháin iad siúd a bhí mo locht!

Ba chóir d'éinne a cheannach Kanguro choinneáil soiléir ar an chéad X-samhlacha. An X1 agus X2 tá frámaí feadánacha, agus na scoilteanna X an fráma ag an bpointe footrest ceart. Tá an X1 treisiú ann.

Is é an t Ceannlampa amháin AC solas díreach, mar sin athraíonn aschur le luas innill. Tá sé freisin ina córas soilsithe 6-bholta, le ceallraí an-beag!

Mar sin,, tar úinéireacht an Kanguro ó nua, Bhí mé i ndáiríre an-tógtha leis an mótar. Ansin, chonaic mé grianghraf de Dart nua sa phreas, and wasn’t too impresseduntil I saw one close-up at the Earls Court Show in 1998. I positively DROOLED!

So I watched NLM unpack the first one they had from Harglo, and bought it straight away.

It’s a June 1990-registered Moto Morini Dart, so is now almost 16 years old. It’s got 54,000km on it and is still in very good condition. It’s had a few mods, all done by melike the right foot gearchange / left foot brake, a Honda NTV650 hydraulic adjuster on the rear Marzocchi monoshock, alloy tank, and handlebar raisers.

I also fitted it with a KN air filter, with suitable jet changes, and a Y-piece in the exhaust in place of the unobtainable expansion chamber, and a Micron exhaust can off a Ducati 750SS. The latter was done partly to reduce weight, partly to make it sound a proper V-twin! It’s also had extra spacers slotted in above the internal fork springs.

Without doubt, its best features are its looks, and performance. The Dart is not particularly fast (I’ve seen a max of 101.1mph on my digital cycle speedowhich is very accurate, by the way), but the handling is SUPERB! It’s also economical and has given 64mpg over its life (I have a record of all the fuel used from new).

It’s comfortable for a shortie, and it’s taken us on a couple of Continental tours two-up.
