What I learned today

hmm
I learned loads ... perhaps the point I need to learn translation for my own language
XJ900 batteries die if you don't use the bike
TZR125's go really well and cost FA to run
FS1's dont like wet weather
my locally living people don't like me going to work b4 5am (the TZR wakes um up)
Passing an NVQ is a bit to easy
Regards Jim

I've learned that....

After mastering Bump-starting XJ550's for 6 years of daily riding.....
Electric starters are for Wussies!:D

& that Simlicity is the name of the game.....hence my kick-starting XT exploits.:riding:

NO FEELIN' LIKE 2-WHEELIN'!! :riding:

Today I learnt that six wheelers cannot get into the same places as four wheelers there about 10 foot too long !

Try Bumping an XT ... no fun, but my first XT500 didn't have the 'kick indicator' window and I did not have the plant in order to get the dwell angle correct so 9 out of 10 it struck back ..
Happy Days
