Pics of you and/or your bike

20 years ago.
Customised bikes, long hair, no safety gear, no helmets, hardly any coppers. No speed cameras, no red light cameras.
Those were the days.
My Kawa 750 LTD Twin and John's Suzi 750.
Both bikes had over a hundred thou kms on when this pic was taken!


The Southern Highlands. Arulen track.


The car matched the colour of the Ducati.


Two thugs for the price of one.
Jaq on the left, Dave on the right. What no parking sign?

The Southern Highlands pic?

That is the original Honda NX 650 Dominator.
I had one of the first 1988 models that they brought to Oz.

There is a better pic of it with Olivia in my Women Who Ride thread.

Single cylinder, dual header and mufflers, twin carbs.
Top speed with original front 16 tooth sprocket 160 kph.
I replaced it with a 15 tooth front sprocket for more low down power off road, dropped the speed down to 150 kph, but that was ok.
My average speed on dirt roads is normally 90 to a 100 kph.
I had put black vinly contact on the sides of the petrol tank to stop my knee guards scratching the paint.
(I do that wih all my trail bikes.)
If you look closely at the Olivia pic...the bike, not her...
I also got one of those black plastic acid drum containers, washed it out, sliced off the top and bottom, split it down the side and cut handguards out of them. You mold the handguards into shape by holding a soldering iron against them to heat them up, make them bendable, then hold them in that shape for a minute until they cool down. Works great.
Take note of my fork seal protectors...lots of new bikes have them now yeah?...I made them back in 89...piece of pvc pipe sliced in half, sanded to shape and held on with stainless steel hose clamps...I see lots of new bikes coming out of the factory with similar protectors on these days.
I have always done it to my bikes...another idea I should have patented.

Jaq Hammering around a curve in the trail in the Upper Blue Mountains on the 88 Dom. :D


My new Honda Dominator is still a 650, but a 94 model. Picked it up for a song with low kms and in very good condiition.
You can expect to get about 70,000 to a 100,000 kms out of an NX engine without any major engine work...if you change the synthetic oil regualrly and keep the air filter clean.

Cheers: Jaq.

The Suzi looks like a GS750A (single disc) I had a B model twin disc I guess a 1979/80 model. Awesome motors unburstable.

I dont know what year John's bike was.

But it had spent it's whole life around the Shire. :D

A bloke down the road had it for some years. Then he moved and owed rent and gave it to Grot in lieu of the rent. Grot rode it around for awhile, then mentioned to me he wanted to sell it. John bought it for $800 bucks and had it a number of years himself, sold it to another local.
Up until I moved out of Cronulla in 1999 I still saw it around occassionally.

It certainly gave value for money to it's various owners. :lol:

Bought the bike from a german. So, dont really know where the plates are from exactly. I'm registering the bike in CapeTown (ZA)  now, but want to try and keep the plates. They'll probably give me a CY numberplate though.

Not my bike but got to ride this old lady from Bavaria to Centurion on Friday. She was at Bavaria for 3 years and had been standing after a minor crash for 2 years before that. She goes quite well for a 27 year old bike.
