[quote name='dansar']My dad has an ex police xj750 parked in the shed - hasnt ridden it for nearly 18 years. Trying to convince him it would be better off at my place so I can work on it and get it running again (it was running when he stopped riding)[/quote] I loved my xj - I cried when the bike shop said that the forks were pitted and would no longer be warrantable. Some people rag on the shaft-drive and reckon it kicks to the side as you accelerate, but I never noticed that. The only actual xj [I]owner[/I] I have ever heard complain about the shaft drive was a drongo who whined that it leaked lube all over his rear tyre when he cornered :what:. Hes right up there with the guy who complained that his (water cooled) kawasaki was constantly overheating, and never actually filled the sodding thing water :rofl:. Got that bike cheap and never had any problems with it. (y) But yeah, as you probably know better than me, engines are best when run regularly; the longer its left the more likely it is to seize fatally. A sad end for a bike which deserves to last long enough to be a classic. So keep working on your dad.

I started off with these. But you cannot stop too long at traffic lights in some places in NZ. They steal the wheels off you while you're on them.:( [attachment=2869:name] Then I got this, and have to carry it home as there is not many places to charge it up.:mad: [attachment=2870:name] I tried various model of these. Too hilly in Wellington. Ends up in a pile of scrap:crap: [attachment=2871:name] This belongs to my son. But I use to have a 50cc to ride to work and when the clutch wasn't too good and cyclist was passing me in a Southerly wind on the road, it was embarrassing. :mask: [attachment=2872:name] For an upgrade to the 50cc I was given a Fiat Bambina with a soft top for my 40th. Initially I was :what: I should have stuck with the 50cc. Had to push start most of the time:thumbdown: . Sorry photos somewhere. Now I prefer these(y):):cool::D:love: . No speeding tickets. If you want to go slow, just do lots of S's and if you want to go real fast, point them straight down hill. and faster still, crouch real low and legs further apart as if doing :crap: in the bush. If your are really scared, that might also happen. The downside is it can only go downhill. The upside is a chauffeur takes you uphill. Goes through deep powder, groomed, ice, slush in spring and sometimes hidden gravel. [attachment=2873:name] I do envy those beeks who can afford better transportation with their $400/kg manuka honey

Oh, PK. My first car was a Bambina and I loved it. On Dunedin hills it had to work hard and one of the spark plug leads would often jump off. They don't go uphill well on one cylinder, either.

As a once fairly serious road cyclist, I feel I do have to make some comment on the angle of your seat... I realise that isn't a road bike with drop bars, so the riding position may not be so forward - but if that [U][B]were[/B][/U] a road bike, with the nose up at that angle you would well be, er, well, um, risking numbing a certain region and rendering it on the sore side... :eek::eek::cry: for a roadie the recommendation would be to angle it just a fraction downwards from parallel with the top tube.... (y)
