What was your worst bike
For me, the worst bike I owned was a 1979 Kawasaki KH-250 Triple.
Although I enjoyed riding it, this thing was Jinxed from the day I purchased this 5 month old snatch back at the Kawasaki dealer in Cambridge.
It kept on running on 2 cylinders, cleaned or changed plugs numerous times.
put new piston rings, still did it.
Dealer didn’t want to know.
When it was running sweet it was good.
Then one day on a trip it kept blowing main fuses, after exhausting all the spare fuses & from other bikers I had to put cigarette packet foil on the fuse to get me back for home. Took the tank off, the whole loom was melted.
Dealer didn’t want to know. I fitted a new loom.
Another trip, Oil light came on, before I even got to a garage for oil she ceased up, back wheels locked & was skidding all over the place.
So even after a rebore, new rings, 500 mile run in at a painful 30mph, Guess what! It was back to running on 2 cylinders.
I reckon the previous owner thrashed the A..ss of it before the dealer took it back
It was time to Flog this dog & wave good riddens.
I blame the colour, unlucky grasshopper green.
On a positive note’ when it was behaving, my mates Yamaha LC 250 couldn’t beat me on the straights.
