NOW THIS IS A REAL IMPROVEMENT.

NOW THIS IS A REAL IMPROVEMENT.

Friend just dropped around with a borrowed Vario 150. I have always had a hankering for this little beast, even though I can neither afford a new bike, need a new bike, or can even buy one in my own name now with the latest daft ‘rules’.

I liked the size, the extra power, the smoothness and all the goodies.

What I hadn’t realised is that it has the Number One accessory that any bike should have in Bali. A real horn. No more bencong-like, prissy ‘peep-peep’ of a chicken with delusions of grandeur now, but a proper, LOUD blast that sounds like a truck.

Perfect for those ‘I’ll-just-enter-from-the-left-without-looking” types. Perfect for those jay-walking dingbats who think that walking into the road, limply flapping a wrist, will allow me to defy the laws of momentum and stop in time. Perfect for those car-driving loons who simply pull out of their kerbside parking spots without so much as a glance,

I want one, and I want it now. Shame I can’t afford to get one.

Hang on, what am I thinking? I can just go out and buy that horn for my bike at the spare parts counter! Problem solved.

NOW THIS IS A REAL IMPROVEMENT
