Hi pingu

The smart in the background is a Brabus
just to wet your appetite :)

The person I bought the bike from
has more toys than me

Well nearly :D

Boysie ... that bike is AWESOME!!!!

My husband WOULD KILL ME if I ever bought a motor cycle (I have a license and had a small bike when I was a teenager -- just a very short while ago!!!) .... but I see yours, and I think "He'd have to CATCH me in order to KILL me, and I think THAT could outrun him..."

A truly awesome bike. I think ALL people should have toys. I think it is essential!!!

That's what I had before I bought my zed, great fun but decided I needed something a little bit more grown up so bought the zed :D

Hi Aceman

The Smart is a fantastic car
At one stage we had 3 in the family
The local dealer called us the smart family :)
The wife was one of the first people to own a smart,
With so many colours to choice from.
My Daughter got hit in the side by another car, it rolled her over
she owned the cabriolet version.
The fire brigade could not cut the frame of the car,
they had to remove the windscreen
the car saved her from serious injury.
The writeoff damage to the car was caused by the firemen
trying to cut her out. all they had to do was pop the softop to open it
With my daughter hysterical, i didnt envy them at all.
They were amazed how robust and strong the car was
The brigade made a comment in our local paper about how good the car

A Fun Car to drive

Don't get me wrong it was a great little car and I really enjoyed owning it as it attacted attention wherever I went I just decided I'd much prefer a zed. I did do some modding on it though :D I had it remapped, silicon hoses, OBD fuel computer (can't remember the name of it, replaced the clock module?) and a few other cosmetic changes.

Maybe I will get another one someday who knows. :)
