Well.. I did have to buy a new tyre and brake pads, so i guess its not so bad, but man did it hurt. I also had to replace the drive shaft on the toyota this week, so now im really poor. The bike does feel great though, ill go easy for a while on the new tyre, but it seems to have more power??? dont know what they did, i know nothing about mechanicals, all i know is that i put petrol in, a spark ignites the petrol, which in turn pushes the pistons which hit the sparkplug and it all starts again. what price do you all pay for service?? Mayb i should learn how to do it myself, im just worried id mess it up, i dont want to kill her.
