Hello - Robin here. mid fifties Englishman and new Scrambler 1200 owner. I live in Merseyside between Liverpool and Southport.

Bought it from Amore Moto in Whitchurch UK as a ex-factory bike from Italy so first UK registered owner. Just got the Scrambler a couple of weeks ago. Absolutely love it. Been hankering for one for about 8 years and finally bit the bullet and paid the dosh. But a big v-twin takes a bit of getting used to after modern triples like triumph street triple and yam xsr I've had before.

This one is marked as a Scrambler Low on the italian docs. After speaking to MM Italy I think it is basically a Sport 1200 with scrambler clotes on. Best of both worlds! Lovely gold engine, 17inch front wheel with black spokes. Not sure how to post and image?

Happy sunny riding everyone.

Hi Robin, and welcome to the Forum...

You'll love the engine and the bike, and the new Morini are fantastic bargains when bought like yours... Just watch the ethanol in the fuel tank, as the polyurethane can swell, especially with the sometimes dodgy fuel around your way - using super unleaded from reputable suppliers can help, I am told...

Good riding, and join the Club as well if you haven't already!

Great looking scrambler Robin.

If you’re at a loose end this weekend, come down to show it off at the Rally. Bit of a journey for you but good to get the running in done quickly!

Morini club international rally in Kent this weekend promises to be the biggest gathering of Morini folk in the UK this year.

I believe weekend ticket sales have closed but Saturday day tickets are still available on the day- but you could always try a cheeky email to the organisers to see if there is a space for you...
