Moto Morini Kanguro a me nā ihe a

Most people tend to plump for one of the well-known Morini Sport or Strada models. Akā, ma ke alo o na welau o ka unahiʻole, i oe e huli i ka Naha Pōhaku, maikaʻi ke nānā aku i nā ihe, a me ka rufty-tufty Kanguro. A pehea la Ken Philp hele e ponoi nā?

Au mua ike aku la i kekahi Kanguro ma Earl Hookolokolo ma 1982, a Ua holoʻokoʻa i hele mai e like me ka mea i he 'okoʻa ke alanui V-māhoe. Au i ka 'inikua pilikia i loko o 1984, no laila, komo pakele ana o kekahi mau Bike, a kuai i kēia kekahi, ka mua Kanguro a NLM i loko o ka Shop.

Ua pono mālama hele i na manawa aʻu i makemake ia e! Ua haawi mai iaʻu i ka LOT o ka oluolu aku-alanui, ma muli naʻe o kona kaumaha, a I Like ka shortie – 5'5. Au wale ho'āpono pakele no ka mea, i loko o 2003 no ka mea, au wale i 15% akemāmā nona iho manawa.

Au hiki ole aku nei au ua mea mea au i makemake e pili ana ia. Au ia mea no enduros, Trail-ana, Weston Beach Makuakane, lōʻihi-mamao e hookolokolo ai, a laila, a hookahi uhi 720 mile i ka 20 hola ma ka MCC hanana.

I huina I uhi ana 16,000 mile. Aia he ole maoli pilikia, ka poe i ka poe koʻu hewa wale!

Ka mea kūʻai i kekahi Kanguro e malama akaka o ka mua X-Ke Ana Hoʻohālike. Ke X1 a X2 i omo mōlina, a me ka X mawae i ke kino ma ka akau footrest wahi. Ke X1 i kilo malaila.

Ke headlamp mea wale AC pololei ka malamalama, no laila, loli aʻe ia auoiaea me ka engine holo. O kekahi he 6-volt ho'ā nā'ōnaehana, me ka LOA uuku o na pu ki!

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.
