I stumbled across this vid on Youtube and immediately came her to share it. Now I find out that you are an inmate. Frakkin awesome!

Brilliant review, best I have ever seen and funny as hell. Swimming with the helmet . If I was independently wealthy I would buy bikes in Oz just to have you review them. You, sir are setting a new standard

Wonderful, now let's see one of you V7 Stone owners do a "honest" test.

Well Done

Best HONEST review, and the bonus of comedy!

Reminds me of that Australian site that had the funny reviews for the Multi, 1098 and 1000RR - GizMag. Did the OP work for them or are you trying to get hired by them?

Excellent! I used to be a big fan of Hell For Leather, back before they sold out to Jalopnik. I could always count on them for an honest review. Lately, however, every review reads like advert or press release, including their gushing over every aspect of the Bonneville and the "jet-ski" like V-Strom.

I see a future in moto-journalism for you!

I put a link to your video on the ZRXOA.org board and so far, everyone loves it. Good job!

Marlon,

that was a very well put together video, and now I do not want this bike, it sounds like too expensive to fix.

How much do you think you spend on making it a good average bike? I love the looks of the bike and it is not over the top, but I do not want to fix soo many things, I will agree all bikes must be fix to fit you, but suspension and brakes such come with the bike.

Thank you for taking the time to do the review.

Damasovi

I agree, suspension and brakes are pretty bad straight out of the box.

I will say, I did spend a few buxs getting to the point where it's more enjoyable. Most notably, rear shocks, BC Predator Pipes, ECU Mapping, removed airbox and o2 Sensors.

Now, it runs around town really well and sounds good. It's a great little bike and enjoy the crap out of mine.

Very entertaining, informative and funny!
"As British as pork pies and dogging" was my favorite line too, but "meh white, nana's panties gold and look at me wrong and I'll scratch black" was a strong second.
Moar! Moar!

Right as rain, he certainly is setting a new standard!

The only thing that I kept thinking as I was watching was, "what the fuck did he expect? He bought a Bonnie!"

I'm surprised that you were surprised at what you ended up with...
