Legend 4 Arrives

So the history for those that are behind ..

2001 R1 The original Legend that has since disappeared after being thrashed and crashed by our own BP

2003 R1 The 'upgrade'

2004 999R ... oww baby, it's still being run in

2006 Yamaha 115cc Nouvo MX.

After riding this baby, I've decided the duke has got to go ;-)

Is that a dry clutch???

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

I still think we should all buy these and race em someday

Pray tell "how do you stop her" i can't see a rear brake

Or doesn't she go fast enough to warrant a rear brake.

Had to use my step ladder to change a light bulb cos i don't get on with my real ladder.

Yes Ledge we noticed that "R" for red! in this case as apposed to the "B" for blue one.

or is the "R" for ridiculos

Close its where the reusable dust bag goes

It has an R on one side and L on the other, Legend thinks its a dual purpose bike One side for racing and one for luxury crusing

Noooooooooo........ R on one side and the L on the other side are meant to tell the rider which side of the bike is which....perfect for people like Legend who cant tell right from left.....he only knows right from wrong......and most of the time he gets it wrong...

I have now had the little rocket for going on a week now and after publishing the the tongue in cheak start to this thread I have to follow up with saying this thing is ferkin cool!!!

The brakes are just wicked, it weighs ferk all, and the suspension does a reasonable job of keeping it up right. Granted the 115cc's don't do much, but that Constantly Variable Tranny is a hoot and you end up pinning the throttle everywhere and doing your best not to shut it ...... ever.

For those that have been to Phuket .... picture the hill going into it ... and then picture taking one of these up one side and down the other ... ferkin laugh I tell you.

As for the idea of racing these ..... it would be one hell of a funny thing to do, cost naught, and be a right laugh.

Speaking of laughs, it actually leans over ...... GD, I'm doing my best to get the chicken strips off this one quicker than the duke ;-)
