So – there is life in the old dog yet!
The old fool must have got tired of nursing tatties on the barren rocks of Bardrishaig and has just gone and nailed one of these lil beauties to play with instead —
Yup! The brand new – still in the box CRF 250RL. She looks like a refugee from the Dakar Rally.
.A few of the 250RLs have been flown in to the UK prior to general release and his nibbs has gone and nabbed one of them. Says it will bring back happy memories of gate-crashing the Italian Press Launch of the equivalent Yamaha 250 off-roader in Tunisia a few years back. Say’s they had so many bikes at the launch that they didn’t miss one of ’em for half a day when he disappeared over the dunes on it.
Don’t know where he is going to find a sand dune on the Isle of Luing – it was all rock – bog and slate last time I looked.
Is he mad – or – sad? Time will tell – watch this space 🙂
