  1. Just started lurking,reading the posts about roads I remember from the past.Grew up in Mt Druitt rode up and down and all around the Blue Mountains as soon as I had a bike went through a few over the years CB250 learnt to be a muckanic on that bike twin leading shoe drum on the front,VT250 next up went really well for its size and time then started making this knocking noise{14000rpm ignition cut out whats that for oh thats why}took it to 3 yes 3 mechanics 2 of them Honda dealers all flat refused to look at it after listening to the knock B@$tards.Mate says pull it apart what have you got to lose?Allright says I bingo bent valve woohoo from memory cost about $14 + beer and forever distrust mechanics.Put it back together straight to Brian Collins at Kingswood I think it was traded it on a 82 XJ750 loved that bike did 40000Kms on that bike in one year looking back I obviously didnt do much else except ride it.Only left me stranded once at a little place called Moonbi near Tamworth I think,been riding for 6 hours in pouring rain and the coils were saturated didnt know enough to look.Had a dog that rode with me at the time think she was relieved when the bike wouldnt start.Sorry to take up so much space didnt realise I was starting a novel anyway currently riding 83 XJ750 seem to fix it more often than I ride it family keeps the dollars down.Thanks for listening {reading?}look forward to getting to know you all.
