Maybe we will get a front disc in the 2078 make over!


I take a yellow one please.

Is that what gives the old ones that vague sailing bouncing feeling?
I would like a safe feeling one, and I would get a piss pot helmet and all.

Yep that the problem, good description of it too.

The Innova is a modern ish version and it has tele fork and a disc brake, I would imagine it is alot better handling than the original.

The consumerist, materialistic suv-loving Irish wont buy them, despite the fact (at least in urban areas) theyd save them loads of the most valuable thing in life, time, and money too.
