i bought a lovely black xj6 diversion in may, i rode it to work and back for a few days, clocked up a hundred or so miles and then went on a trip down to plymouth, bearing in mind i was running it in. i decided on A roads only where i could, so i set off from Dartford and made my way to Sevenoaks where i took the A25 to Guildford then over the Hogsback and all the way down to Winchester, i stopped a few times to give the engine a rest. To be honest as i was riding down the road towards Winchester, i was wondering when i was going to see some signs for the A303 so i stopped for fuel and asked the person in the garage, thankfully i was only about another ten miles away. i got onto the 303 and the bike felt lovely and smooth, what i love about this bike is theres no vibration either through the bars, footrests or seat, not like my old fz6. I stopped again at Sparkford services and got something to drink, while i was there i decided to adjust the handlebars as i was starting to get a bit of numbness in my hands, while i hads the seat off and was messing about with my tools i heard a shout from behind me, a bloke with a van and trailer asked if i was ok, "yes cheers mate" i said, (nice to know theres some people like that about). i eventually got down to plymouth at my sisters house and stayed there for a few days, it was lovely sunny weather and drank loads like you do.the ride back was fantastic too. The bike is now run in and ive now done 1500 miles so i can wind the throttle back a bit more and i like the torquey power this bike has, its so smooth all i want to do is ride it. i had my old fz6 for seven years until i swapped it for this one, i can see myself having the xj6 for the same amount of time possibly longer as im so pleased with it. So far ive put a topbox and rack on it, also a fender extender, i might get some crash bungs and a rear hugger, i though about maybe a louder exhaust but then found out how much one costs and changed my mind as it doesnt sound too bad as it is, maybe over time the baffle might naturally get a bit noisier over time with use.
