    Found in FB group, thought I’d share. Gave me a chuckle. Tootels.

    Ah, the Wandering Horse, the Festive Dog and the Skid Demon. The Dude abides...
    1982 GS1100E V&H "SS" exhaust, APE pods, 1150 oil cooler, 140 speedo, 99.3 rear wheel HP, black engine, '83 red

    2016 XL883L Two-tone blue and white. Almost 42 hp! Status: destroyed, now owned by the insurance company. The hole in my memory starts an hour before the accident and ends 24 hours after.

    I've seen a couple of versions of that one around, pretty sure I posted one of them here at one time or another.
    1983 Naked Goldwing Interstate GL1100 (Current bike)
    1982 GS450txz (former bike)
    LONG list of previous bikes not listed here.

    Not ALL conspiracy theories are false. If it's on the radio, TV AND the internet (with pictures) then it's true. If it shows up in print, it always will be. www.birdsarentreal.com

    Seems to be translated by the same folks that translated some technical manuals I have had to use. But of course, with a technical manual about something I was not familiar with, I did not recognize that the translation was inappropriate, just was confusing and not learning anything.

    Had 850G for 14 years. Now have GK since 2005.
    GK at IndyMotoGP Suzuki Display... ... GK on GSResources Page ... ... Euro Trash Ego Machine .. ..3 mo'cykls.

    You think that's BAD/FUNNY. Try reading some of the user manuals for 35mm cameras made in CHINA in the 1960's!

    always funny! Yes, I think Grimly or you (Lab3) had that up before...I saved a copy...mildly interesting (to me)The Chinglish dialect is probably rooted in "Google Translate" while this Japanglish has to be from a British source.. "Tootle" has never been heard outside of the Empire.

    When I read that,it seems to me that the authors of those funny mix of words do care about how we drive our bikes safely and interact with the rest of society while on our joy rides of course a Lot is lost in the lack of translation.I miss trying to read? the older shop manuals from back then..
