The thing is the little Honda scooter is so quiet walkers and cyclists often dont hear you coming along the lanes here. I would be doing them a service by getting that mad KTM as they would certainly hear that one coming.

Its tantalisingly close to the weight of a scooter as well at just 139kg. Probably too heavy for the back of the van but not a million miles off the 102kg of the little Vision. Totally impractical of course. Nowhere to put shopping and not much of pillion seat or grab bars. It would just be a bonkers toy (that I wont be allowed to have)

I wonder who will say then you need a garage instead of a rear lounge. You did say you are looking for a new MH didn't you?

Yeah. With a rear lounge! Scooter is best for the van really anyway. Much more practical.
