SANTA rides a Cota 348!

Postby David Lahey » Tue Nov 24, 2009 10:57 pm

The original deal for being SANTA for my work christmas party was to arrive on camel-back but the cameleers had a better offer so what else to use for SANTA transport but my faithful 1976 Cota 348 (just visible in the background).
You know I'll do anything to publicise trials riding
The kids and the oldies thought it was pretty cool to see SANTA arrive on a 1970s dirt bike. My own kids thought it was quite normal.....

I couldn't help but notice how Santa chose the colour scheme for his suit to match the Cota so well.

Ah, but God rides a Bultaco Sherpa.

Sorry Dave, couldn't resist. Happy new year.

Thanks Mark and Tim
Santa had to ride his Montesa because neither of his red "God's bikes" was going at the time the cameleers did their DNS

SANTAs Cota 348 was way too quiet at the Gladstone Power Station christmas party last year so this year he rode his slightly noisier TY175.
This time the kids heard the bike and mobbed SANTA when he finally stopped practicing amongst the swimming pool grounds.

I'm shocked! I'm stunned!! I'm severely unamused!!!
Practicing a new or different obstacle may very well be necessary before delivering the contents of Santa's sack....
But to admit to it publicly is a whole different thing. Little kids of all ages will be worried.

Well done David.

Now all we need to do is find a way to publicly link the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy to trials bikes.

Hi Everyone,

David, did you know that before Coca Cola and their clever marketing got involved, Santa was dressed in green and white! Perhaps, sometime in the future, Santa may rock up on a Green and White KT ?????????????????????????????
