    I think it's also a lovely looking bike in a SOJ way. I'm sure it's fine for
    a Sunday occasional if you happen to know a good dentist.

    Lozzo was seen penning the following ode to ... whatever:
    Nice one mate :). Prescient, those Japanese folks...

    See you tomorrow if I can make it to the shoppe by nine. Got to be at
    work by half eleven so it should just about work out.

  6. hmmm. The "rider"'s a lot more attractive than the bike...

    won't let me into the XXX gallery, chiz.

    I stripped and rebuilt the carbs on one of those in exchange for free pizza
    for a week from a chef at the San Raphael Marina Pizzeria :)

    Nice bike for bozzing up and down the prom on.

    Description Seller assumes all responsibility for listing this item.

    "The bike that the British bike industry should have built. Feels like a
    Bonneville to ride with bucket loads of torque "

    LoL. The one I rode was shite. All those whirring chains inside. Brakes
    were crap too. Handling was piggin' horrible. Can't think of many
    redeeming features really.

    Oh, one. It's the only bike I've managed to do a 360 degree pirouette on
    and stay aboard ;-)

    Borrocks. Stick a Triumph badge on it and you'd love it.

    Actually, stick a Triumph badge on it and you'd be hard pushed to tell
    the difference.

    Yes.They run a bit nicer if you put a bit of Millers VSP in too, but it's
    not a problem if you don't bother.

    They don't vibrate too badly, cos I think they had a chain driven balancer
    shaft. SWK will be along to tell me I'm spouting bollocks tho'. ;-)

  17. Presumably to install the "very verylow (sic) reserve". Which I suspect
    might be that thing on the sissy bar.

    I've been wondering about an alternative touring type bike in case the
    wracked spine continues to plague me (1). What is the newer California like?
    they seem to go for very reasonable money, like £3kish for a 2000. I like
    the look of the engine (natch), the wire wheels and the brembo brakes.

    I would hope that any engine restrictions could be quickly rectified to
    lemon spec.

    How far back does one have to go to avoid excessive elictrickery like

    (1) K's don't fit me any more and I hate the gearing

  20. Nah, that's just minging ( the tart's not too bad, though). The one I'm
    thinking of was actually liguid cooled and might have been a V. Bit of
    rubbishy chrome hanging off of it and the obligatory cruiser-style bars
    on it.
