Moto Morini Kanguro agus Dart

Most people tend to plump for one of the well-known Morini Sport or Strada models. Ach aig a 'choinneamh cinn na sgèile gheibh thu an super-mhìn Dart agus an rufty-tufty Kanguro. Mar sin, ciamar a rinn Ken Philp a 'tighinn a bhuineas an dà chuid?

Chunnaic mi an toiseach a Kanguro aig Iarlan Court ann an 1982, agus chaidh a dhrùigh mar a bha e far-rathad V-càraid. Bha mi ann an trioblaid meidigeach 1984, mar sin cuidhteas de ghrunn baidhsagalan agus cheannaich fear seo, a 'chiad Kanguro NLM a bha anns a' bhùth.

Tha e dìreach a 'cumail a' dol nuair a bha mi ag iarraidh e gu! Thug e orm tòrr tlachd far-rathaid, a dh'aindeoin a chuideam, agus tha mi a shortie – 5'5. Tha mi a-mhàin a fhuair cuidhteas e ann an 2003 oir chan eil agam ach 15% sgamhain comas a-nis.

Chan urrainn dhomh a ràdh nach robh rud sam bith nach robh mi a 'còrdadh. Mi ga chleachdadh airson enduros, -slighe marcachd, Weston Beach Race, astar fada deuchainnean, agus mar sin air adhart, agus an uair a 'còmhdach 720 mìle ann 20 hours air an tachartas MCC.

Ann iomlan mi a 'còmhdach mu 16,000 mìle. Cha robh fìor dhuilgheadasan, a-mhàin an fheadhainn a bha mo choire!

Duine sam bith a 'ceannach Kanguro bu chòir a chumail soilleir air a' chiad X-modailean. Tha X1 agus x2 tha Tubular frèamaichean, agus an X sgoltaidhean an fhrèam aig a 'phuing ceart footrest. Tha X1 Tha daingneachadh an sin.

Tha e a-mhàin headlamp AC dìreach solas, cho eadar-dhealaichte ri toradh einnsean astar. Tha e cuideachd a 6 gath-solais siostam, le glè bheag bataraidh!

So, an dèidh a bhith fo shealbh na Kanguro bho ùra, Bha mi air leth toilichte leis an charbadan. An sin chunnaic mi dealbh de Dart ùr anns na meadhanan, 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 Aois bhliadhnaichean. 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.
