    dunno how my colours would go on it, maybe suitable for some creek crossings I maybe should not have tried in my bulletproof yoof :)

    For the life of me I can't see why you're upset, and I don't feel like explaining it to you. :-)

    Well it is named the Pegasus and that the Para patch and colours so i find it odd. That said lets keep this about the bike. My bad for making that comment, i guess it just took me by surprise. Lets not derail Loftys thread. Move along.

    I reckon that Enfield has more going for it (for me anyway) than the Himalayan

    The himma may surprise you, but these do smell of some history. Depends on what people want, and the image they want to present.
    The himma is what it says on the box, I guess the flying horse is just another re niche vehicle that has appeal to some people.
    It is a refreshing company

    a bike for just pottering around, taking a sandwich and a six pack to some beach for a spot of fishing.......... or maybe a month long dawdle through the outback, reckon that thing would let one smell the roses without too much hassle

    Pity the Pegasus is in limited numbers.
    Hopefully it’ll become a regular model.

    I hope this doesn't satart another catfight, but this could explain the insignia Bill. I noticed on another site the design of the bike was done in consultation with the appropriate authorities in the old dart, so nothing was stolen.
