Explain Please

Why must the front bumper be so big?

What is the purpose of the flag pole attached to the front bumper?

A V8 in that thing? You're a brave man.

Why put all those stickers on but not post a picture where they can be read?

What does "ute" mean?

Its not a bumper, its a bullbar...not standard either, removed normal bumper..
reason, where i live there are wildlife on the road, and if you hit them in your vehicle(i'm not joking either) it will do a lot of damage, recently a local was killed when he hit a roo(kangaroo), they dont just run off the road, quite often being confused by a vehicle and hopping either towards you or can run from the bush straight into you...

Ahh.. The good old days - first bike I ever bought. I liked the shaft drive, and the grunt. But the suspension was crap and they just don't make sticky enough tyres in those sizes.

Got to agree about the traction probs, had a gpz750E1 before, that went ok but b4 that was a gpz900r, now that was about the best handling one i ever owned, but alas i have got old and the shaft drive is perfect, only i must get the bike inside and strip it, havent had it on the road for a while and need to put a new clutch in it,and a few other repairs, thank fully the horses and the ute keep me busy...
one thing i do miss with the bike, is being able to do wheelies, ute just wont lift front wheel off ground, but does a better smokie than the bike...lol...
