New owner of a 2017 burn,t orange 650 having downsized from a versys one 1000 . Not due to pick the new bike up until Thursday this week so early Christmas present to myself .
Been riding bikes now for 42 years and have owned and ridden a lot of different bikes in my time . I still have my blast from the past 1983 z650 which I have had to strip the top end due to a dropped valve . Gasket set new valves and buckets turned up today and head came back from being welded .unfortunately it cracked the camshaft casing but all good now with an almost invisible weld .
Am now a disabled rider as I became an amputee in sept 2016 . Had a big off in 1982 , hospital for three months and 30 odd years of constant pain and 12 lots of surgery . All good now just missing a bit ,great way to lose weight but I wouldn’t, recommend it ha ha ! Really looking forward to getting the new bike hopefully talk more soon
