Well its been almost one year, 3500 miles and lots of tinkering since she (1980 KZ 1300B modified) came back to life and I like her more and more each ride even though she is little bit of a bitch.
Few things I learned not to do while riding here in South Florida especially in the summer:
dont ride behind cars even if the car or truck is over 100 feet ahead: she gets hot
Dont ride in the city too long: She gets hot
Dont ride down wind even if i am doing 80 MPH: she gets hot
Do ride high speed in the open rode: She loves it
Make sure there are gas stations in 100 miles radius: she loves to drink
If the weather report predicts temp below 70 deg (not many this year) I must take her out for a blast: She loves it
If I need some adrenaline fix she stays home and the Guzzi comes out to play
I think your aussie friend is mocking the sound.A commodore is an australian made shitbox of a car that is no longer produced.
Unless your friend is an aussie bogan then he probably devotes his life savings to modifying a commodore just so he can do burnouts and drink vb . If so it's probably mean't to be a compliment.
