Well, I would like to say my new acquisition is awesome, after owning various bikes,
Honda MT 50 my first scrambler in 1986
SUZI TS 50 X From new and after running it in I then had an 80 cc big bore installed and it was faultless and very peaky, I would recommend.
RDLC125MK 2, Micron exhaust, Boysen racing reeds,k&n Pod filter, YEDS(YAMAHA ENERGY INDUCTION SYSTEM/pre-power valve, Dynojet, plus needle jet adjustment on throttle :) Metchmetech swinging arm with the concentric chain adjustment brilliant bike all around.
VT 250FD, a little flat but it did pull well at 9-10,00 revs
CB 400 TWIN LOL you may laugh but this bike was very reliable and did 80mph whatever the task.
VF 400FD, fantastic machine and did 44,000 in 8yrs of ownership before I sold it. solid all-rounder
CBR 600 F ULTIMA LIGHT(Last of the carbs 2000model) I was not impressed by this bike as you had to rev it hard to feel like you were moving and I think it felt heavier than my VTR:(
VTR 1000 F FIRESTORM, Well what can I say this machine is fantastic it is light/nimble and has ample power to scare the living s*it out of me at least:)

It may be that your whole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
