hoping its going to be ok..



not blowing or leaking anywhere..



this is for my wife to take her test on



we are in Hong Kong





interestingly the bike has a broken number plate - and the plastic casings for and neutral etc lights has gone - the speedo is round.. doesnt look like the square original,,





brakes are pretty poor - maybe they have got some problems? back brake - almost non existent - front soft - pumping didnt help much.. - new pads on the front perhaps? - how about the rear? its a drum !



clutch seems very soft, almost like its slipping? anyways it's not a positive snatch away -





I'm currently commuting on a hornet 600 - so I expect they should feel a bit different



aside from that - I always liked the look of this bike..





where's the VIN again?



thanks guys - this place has already given me a load of ideas and I havent even got it home yet!



( it's not even my bike but I cant wait!

VIN# is on the right side of the steering tube on U.S. models. Yours is prolly the same.

Good Luck!



Make it safe for the wife. Sounds like a few things to take care of.

what can I say - the bikes a hoot! sure footed and great for riding downhills with no hands...



love it!



check out a few pics - I ight have to show you guys some of the HK roads and one track lanes - amazing views and some fun walls to do wall of death type corners on!!!





bit rusty where the rearfender has been removed - actually wondering what to do there = sort of ugly.... might get some black pipe foam insulation over there and see if I can mackle up a fender out of plastics - never was keen on the skirts tho...






anyways here's my wife's "baby" noticed the rolled up L plates!








the album is posted here http://gallery.me.com/mcmrc#100008





couldnt include them here? what was I doing wrong?
