    Having, owned an SS Darmah (howa uncomfortable canna I amake you ride) and a 900 Hailwood Replica (It's a ride day, I'mma not a gonna start) I, too, can now (with the elapsing of time and onset of dementia) see the funny side of this.

    PS apologies for the stereotyped language my Dukes spoke.

    Commiserations!
    A two-up trip Sydney to Tweed and back, on the Darmah in 1979, has a special place in my memory.
    A long distance bike it wasn't!

    I rode my Darmah from Brisbane to Adelaide back in 1978 and never had a problem.

    Didn't break down and I felt fine.

    Maybe I'm weird ( geez, left myself open now haven't I :lol3:lol3:lol3 ), mind you I was a lot younger, fitter and skinnier.

    Thought nothing of touring on the 750 Sport way back. Not sure I would enjoy that now days.
    So I go and get a 450 single to restore (was mine back in 85) Will see how that is for touring on. I think I know the answer.

    That's what I've been lusting after lately. Anyone want to buy a ktm 950 ADV and a Multistrada.
