It's Not What You Ride, But What Colour You Paint It

Ben Wilson zoomed by our Rye House practice session to say hello before going off to hospital to have some metal reinforcements taken out of his arm-elbow due to a skateboarding big air accident.
When his Honda Helix was still sporting it's original burgundy paint job, a kid came up to him in the street and rather than the usual come-on of "eh mate ow fast it go?" came the put-down "that looks like shite", so Ben decided there and then on a its new colour scheme. BP

Still see a a fair few of those around Rome, known over here as the CN250 Spazio. I think known as the Fusion in some countries. Captain Beaky, definitely.

The Helix is enormous fun, but also truly horrible. Here's mine from some long time ago.

It looks like a turd in tights. American tan tights, worn with rollers and blue mascara that's usually cried off before it's washed off. Aces.

CR250-powered spazzio race series looms, surely? Meanwhile, in googleville, the first SB Deathspray Tribute Spaz already lives...
