"Big Blue" back on the road

From my posts you will see I run a Honda CBF250 and a Yamaha FJ1200. Actually I've got two FJs. The older one hasn't run for a while so today I took it out for a short blast to blow away the cobwebs. I bought this bike 18 years ago and the black/silver one seven years ago to replace it. But I kept the old one and use both.

Big Blue started and ran fine. It burns a bit of oil and rattles when cold but its done 133,000 miles and the motor's never been apart. Even the clutch is original.

I was planning to ride the CBF until next spring but I think I'll use Big Blue as well.

  1. Sure looks good for a bike with that mileage. You must take good care of your machines.
