Looks great.

I see the list price is about 80 man. Is the 'real price' much different?

Wouldn't mind doing that myself.

Looks great Stemik. I'm kind of jealous.

(40-50 man second hand for under 20,000kms. I doubt many owners will ride them for day to day stuff)

I bought it second hand, thinking I am only a "beginner" rider so I dont want to drop a new bike! (though I dont want to drop this bike either)
It is in really good condition, you can tell it has been looked after.
Looking at getting some saddle bags soon. Deciding to get black or tan...

Kenny!

Mr Essex sure was the performer wasn't he. And lovely hair. I wonder if he and Shakey were friends. They must have crossed paths.
Pies.

How are you finding the 400cc, stemik? As in, wish you had more power?

Kind of interested in getting a bike myself next year.

I found the bike to be just about right for me being an absolute beginner, though on some open roads, I have thought to myself, is that all that there is...

Actually I had a crash. I lost concentration and slipped on some small stones on the side of the road, I was a little scratched the bike more so and had to go in for repairs for while.

I used to ride a 650. Loved it. Actually would like to go back to join the gang.

Did you find the test easy peasy?

How about reading in Japanese? Do I need it?

Thanks.

because i already had a car license there was only a road test. Not too difficult. Need to do an emergency stop, navigate some chicanes, hill start and stay on a narrow bridge for about 8 seconds.
