I just got back home from a lovely trip to Spain and Portugal, and boy was it great to see some bikes you just don't see in the States. I've always been a sucker for modern bikes with retro looks (imagine that) so a few models in particular kept catching my eye.

Can any of our European membership tell me a little about Mash? I'd never heard of their brand before, but it's almost like when they set their target market they just read my mind. Are they all looks, or do they make a good, reliable product as well? If I was of a mind to own a second motorcycle, something smaller than my SCR for off-highway use, I've long considered the SR400 to be what I imagine I'd most likely go for, but these Mash bikes would be right up there if they had a mind to sell them in the US.

Can’t say I’ve seen any about myself, just in magazines. I always assumed them to be more a learner bike, and potentially cheap Chinese knock-offs, but quite happy to be put straight?

The 'net says it's a French company, and they're built in China.

This reminds me of that old maths conundrum, which supposedly stumps smarter people than me all the time:

If a baseball and a bat cost $1.10 together, and the bat costs $1.00 more than the ball, how much does the ball cost?

Answer tomorrow (no Googling!!)

Depends on how you read the question: "the bat costs $1.00, (add comma) more than the ball, how much does the ball cost?"

Then it's easy, 10 cents. I'm just being a smart-ass and probably wrong. Looking forward to the real answer.

But that would make the bat only 90 cents more than the ball...

@flatrack and @Schu coming at the head of the class here. Me and @Kristoph are sat in the corner with ‘D’ hats on (as I said the same, originally! )

Here you go:

Although $1.00 + $0.10 does equal $1.10, if you take $1.00 – $0.10 you get $0.90, but the problem requires that the bat costs $1 more than the ball.

So, the ball must cost $0.05, and the bat must cost $1.05 since $1.05 + $0.05 = $1.10

Mash is a french company but the bikes are made in China. It's cheap and poor quality. Many problems with electricity and, if the bike stays outside ( not in a garage) during winter, it rusts very quickly. But the look is very attractive! I wouldn't buy one! Royal Enfield is more reliable.
