Cant understand that Neal - get it in the ILOC mag - people are always asking membersPaul, I think in these covid times people are wary of coming to view a prospective purchase. I have had my sfc1000 up for sale for nearly 5 months on various sites at what I believe to be a fair price, I have spent hours answering the same questions to numerous enquiries and not one person has wanted to view. So I may resort to sending both Laverda's to auction as I don't want my wife to have the trouble of selling them later.
I missed the 350 Morini I have also been successful on Car and Classic - sold my Trident and Harley pretty quickly for freeSir Sidney Ruffdiamond I will try that approach, many thanks, It has been on the ILOC facebook page and Laverda's for sale section for sometime. I have fairly recently sold my Suzuki gs750' two Motomorini's a 350 and 500 and a 1961 series 2 lambretta all in similar condition to the sfc and the quickest sold in 4 hours and the longest took just under a week. The difference is if something is under £4k or just under £10k. in my opinion.
Lucky here in Adelaide where we have an 800+sq km region loosely described as The Adelaide Hills criss-crossed by literally thousands of kilometres of roads from freeways through to C roads, as well as lots of dirt connector roads that are great fun on dirt or dual purpose bikes. The dirt is rarely policed, so is the last bastion of freedom for many riders. I know a few riders who set their GPS to minimise the bitumen and have a ball on their rides.I had one of those 3 1/2 Morinis a long time ago. Owned it for about seven years before selling it on. From Calgary to get to the twisty roads is a long boring flat straight drive. Last few years of ownership I used to put the Morini on a trailer and trailer it to the twisty bits, unload and rip up and down for a few hours, then load back up on the trailer to go back home.....
I have a Garmin Zumo 396 that has an "Adventurous" mode for finding a route. It turns a boring 30-min trip on the pavement to a 3 hour dirt-filled blast... always fun with the right bike (not the 1200).I know a few riders who set their GPS to minimise the bitumen and have a ball on their rides.
Me too, but is a pain in the arse when you haven’t used it in a long time and want to get somewhere quickly, but forget it is set on “Adventurous”I have a Garmin Zumo 396 that has an "Adventurous" mode for finding a route.
