I thought this would be a great thread for those with a good sense of humour. We here so often of how fast some bikes are, how modified others are & how capable yet others are but we seldom here of the dark horses of the motorcycling world - the slo jos ! In my experience the most unresponsive bike I ever had was a Kawasaki LTD 250 - bought on a whim one fine Sunday afternoon from a bloke who was selling it in the smalls. I did the mandatory test ride around the block (big mistake - should have done a much longer ride) & everything was just groovy - well it would be on dead level ground. Thinking that this would be an ideal 2nd bike to my GSX @ the time the deal was done ! Well, a cruiser style, small diameter tyres & an asthmatic single cylinder did not make for exciting riding. The best part was an aftermarket pipe but this in no way harmonised with the performance. Travelling anywhere other than down my driveway was a hazardous, exhausting exercise. Given it's exteremely low seat & really dull performance one spent much time looking @ the wheel nuts of cagers & completely & utterly lacking the power to get away from them (even my Chinese 200cc dual purpose flight of fantasy was a bullet next to this one). Thus one completed a journey in something akin to a Scandanavian Sauna (never been on a bike this hot), sweating like anything, overpowered by diesel & petrol fumes from the cars & trucks around you & basically collapsed @ your destination with a comprehensive pain in your back from the lousy seating position. It was not long before I did the right thing: took a knock @ flogged it to a dealer & continued with just one bike - the GSX !
