Hate troubleshooting intermittent problems.

Like, riding mainly, but if it has to be maintenance then any form of improvement or upgrade.

hate adjusting stinking bloody drive chains......give me a nice simple shaft drive anyday, what do you mean cb's are chain drive, bugger.....oh well at least it was free

my other bike's a Vmax and one of its big selling points to me was the shaft drive, 120+hp (dyno proven) and a chain was never going to be a good thing.
and here was me thinking I'd kicked the honda habit........silly me

Oil change, it is always messy. Chain adjust or replace may come in second.

'Then' and 'than' are completely different words and have completely different meanings. Same with 'of' and 'have'. Set and sit. There, their and they're. Draw and drawer. Could care less/couldn't care less. Bought/brought FFS.

I love the reward in hand polishing aluminum.

I hate adjusting/lubricating a chain.

Yeah, the chain. However I found that if I research and buy a quality chain with a high tensile strength 10,000+ it will NOT need adjusting that often. Well worth the double price. Of course it depends on your HP and your wrist too  :D
As of today 3/13/2012 my original owner 75 CB750F has made it through 3 wives, er EX-wives. Free at last.  ;-)

Maintenance on my bikes is kind of like sex.

Don't like to be rushed, but on review all great fun.

Like: Almost everything except...
Dislike most: Adjusting the valves. Physics are against locking that nut and not moving your adjustment, they just are!
