Well. Here it is. I'm not quite sure where to start....but here goes. I'd been eyeing up this bike for the past couple of months every time I went to work, so long as it was light enough It had sat under a tree by the driveway while the owner, a foreign worker, did other things. I'd talked to him briefly about it and got the low down on what was wrong with it. I offered to take a look at it for him but he didn't seem interested. I decided to make an offer (as he didn't appear to be doing anything with it) equivalent to about 120 pies He accepted :eek1 After mucking about with it in the shade of the tree and having no joy I loaded it onto the ute for the trip home, and broke one of my good jandels in the process :huh At home... I put the charger on it, relieved it of some excess weight and went to work giving it an oil change, cleaning the starter button and checking connections ( man there's some excess wiring on this thing :eek1 ) I put the jumper leads on it, gave it a sniff of some "start ya bastard" and pushed the button..... several times It eventually started and smoked like a steam train for a bit, probably from being flooded, and I went for a hoon down the drive and back and parked it in the lock up connected to the charger. Still not convinced it was worth the purchase price Anyway... I got home this afternoon, and wheeled it out of the lock up, I'm sure the 800 snorted when I bypased it, I'll have to take that for a ride soon, just to keep it happy, and the Buell that's in there sniggered too, I'm sure of it. It started with no hesitation this time, and there was no smoke. I put on my old leather jacket (haven't worn that in a long time) and went for a cruise round the back roads of Upper and Lower Moutere. This was starting to bug me a little I'm not sure what the red light means, is it... A: No oil ? nah checked that B: No headlight ? Could be, it doesn't work yet C: No speedo ? See above D: Something else ? Who knows, I'll have to do some research So there you have it. I stared at it a bit when I got home still undecided whether I'll keep it and do something about personalizing it, or tidy it up and move it on.
