The Ultima...

Yes I have seen the Ultima...in Switzerland they even made them cover up more of the motor supposedly to reduce engine noise...(see pic)...I wonder what they made the Ducati's and Harley's do?...lol... the yellow on the Ultima in the pic was more of a chartruse(sp) ... the Ultima and was in no way the same yellow (gelb) as the red/yellow or blue/yellow K1's...the graphics were black not red....I wonder if someone ever painted a John Deere color scheme?...Black with yellow graphics was a thought I had as well...

mnsty:...I would like to see a pic of the K1 which had its colors reversed if possible...thanks Kid-Yukon

Does it give you a nice warm feeling to know you're not the only nation to have really poor taste

As a Canadian I always found it amusing, though Canada does have a giant 5 cent piece.

I bought this one

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezT9zJV0pFE

The man who bought it from Blue Moon had an off and traded it for a 4 wheeler. I bought it from that guy.

If you don't like the bike, you are not riding it quickly enough.

A couple of months ago I was asked to clean-up a black one for the owner:









Back in the early 90's, I used own a red & yellow one. After doing the clean-up of the black one I realised how much I wanted one again (and I was convinced by the fact that I can still bend myself into the required shape to fit in it).

A little while ago this one came my way:



I've done about a thousand miles on it and worked out what needs doing mechanically (very little) and currently am at this stage of another 'deep clean':
