Grrrr!!! You're FIRED! But I like you, sort of



General Comments:

Didn't have this machine long.

Why, because.. because.. because, I don't know why.

Reliable? Oh yes!

Stonking stonkability, stonking stonk! My son! Great bike, but what a pig to start! Little window down on the engine to see if a little something was in the right position. If not kick around until it was. Then apply some magic herbs and an incantation and boot the kick start.. Voila! Nothing! Wrong magic spell... cast another VVVrrrommm thud thud thud. Bomb proof! Start proof too sometimes.

What a horrid little warthog. An ex army bike with a bad attitude problem. It didn't obey orders, namely 'START!' Armstrong, you're fired! Great ped though! Unless you own one and have friends, no pillion pegs! Boo hoo! PIG!

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
