I'm curently riding a dark blue Yamaha XJ600
I own a silver Yamaha XV1100 Virago
My mate has taken my bike to weld up the collector box on the exhaust system, he's very kindly lent me his XJ600 while he does it
OMFG what a difference!!
First thing I noticed when I got on the XJ was how light it is, then the height (my seat height is lower than a c70 moped).
When I pulled away I spent about 20 seconds trying to find the foot pegs my pegs are forward (being a cruiser) so that was quite a laugh.
The whole feel of the XJ is plasticky and cheap, not solid, it's far too high to throw round corners at high speed, by comparison it's gutless, you wind it open and nothing seems to happen much, when you wind mine open it goes.....
Like I said, I'm very greatful for the lone of his bike, very kind of him, but his bike is a piece of shit
It maybe cos I'm used to an 1100, but a cbr600 has nearly as much torque as mine, people have told me XJ's go like shit off a shovel.......I say.....yeah..sticky shit
So if there's any bikers about, have you ridden an XJ and what did you think........or ridden an XV for that matter.
