Sooooooo, I have for some time wanted a 500 Moto Morini Camel which is an 80s off roader that some crazy Italians actually competed on in the Paris Dakar. Also relevant to this story is my kid brother, who has for some time had his eye on my tricked up Triumph Thunderbird.

So far so good.

A couple of weeks ago a nice example of said Morini comes up on Ebay, looks really nice and is reasonably close, just over the border in West Yorkcestershire. So I ring my bro and ask him if he wants my Trumpet, which he does, we agree a price, and I call the dealer with the Morini. Unfortunately it had sold.........................

What I should have done at that point is immediately told my brother the deal was off. But whilst I am ruing my bad luck and idly skimming Ebay and I come across a newly listed X1. Now I don't want and X1, I am happy with my M2 – even if it is a good price, and even if I can afford it if I sell my Thunderbird (which I don't really want to), after all it needs all those upgrades doing, most of which I still haven't done on my M2.

I must have blacked out at that point because next thing I know I am sat in a service station drinking coffee waiting for the caffeine to kick in ready for the last leg of a 600 mile round trip with an X1 in the back.

I even bumped into to YMale (?)(I think) who introduced himself in the service station carpark.

It is now snug in the garage being cleaned up. Not as pristine as the M2 and needs ALL the usual upgrades but only 6000 miles and some interesting bits bolted to it. I particularly like the pseudo clip ons and rear sets, not sure about the oil cooler - that looks like overkill and will probably get dumped.
