    its just not my cup of tea,
    im into jap sports bikes,the phrase 'pile of crap' is not meant to be taken literally. its just showing my distaste for bikes of that style, like your 'incontinence pads' comment......unless geoff actually wears them

    Hahaha... I doubt it! It's just a bit of an 'in joke' we've got in the mod room

    Fair enough, I guess it would be like me saying that solid-state amps are a "pile of crap", as I'm into valves

    I like Jap sports bikes too, just not the modern variety, which I find have too much of a look of being designed by a computer/machine, rather than a human being, and as such are 'soulless'.

    Here's mine.
    The 'Bike That Tried To Kill Me' in Tennessee on my 50th Birthday trip to the States, and has left me with a seriously f***ed up right knee/leg/ankle/foot.
    After my surgeries, got it shipped back, fixed it up, and I've now done about 1500 miles since the rebuild.
    Just on 126,500 miles on the clock now - an absolutely stunning bike!

    Oh yeah, that seriously does float my boat. Fabulous engine too with which I have some experience. Shaft drive so no damn useless chains to worry about constantly have to adjust. I just don't do sports bikes anymore. I had over twenty years of the damn things and I have moved on. Respect to those who still love them.

    By the way, that exhaust looks remarkably like a Dunstall from around 1975. Anyone remember them...?

    To refer to a bike as a pile of crap is OK as for decades Japanese bikes were only ever referred to as Jap Crap.

    In fact, in the mid to late seventies, Jap hi-fi was not even considered 'real' hi-fi.
