My new bike, a Yamaha XJ6 Diversion

First ride out on my replacement for the CBF1000, this time it's a Yamaha XJ6 Diversion (aka FZ6R in the US). I give you my first thoughts on the machine even though I've literally just bought it.

Yamaha XJ6 Diversion Walk Around
Another overview of the Yamaha Xj6 Diversion, but this time with exterior shots of the bike. A great all-rounder I reckon.





Examples of approaches to roundabouts and junctions.
As a subscriber suggested, I take a look at approaches to roundabouts and junctions and try to position myself correctly. This includes a look at entering and exiting both major roads and minor side roads.





Response to Alex's MT09 purchase next year, plus other topics.
I give my thoughts on Alex's aka Blahdeblah52's wish to purchase a Yamaha MT 09 next year. So I talk about finance options, plus, as a tenuously linked topic, my experiences of a couple of bikes I'd bought in the past that weren't as good as they should have been, eg. Fireblade and VFR800. Also, a mention about the whole Google Plus fiasco and part switch to Vimeo, at least for the 1080 quality videos. HD Version here! https://vimeo.com/79812698





Yamaha MT-09 first ride impressions & review October 2013.
I take out a Yamaha MT-09 850cc triple out for a first ride and review. I am pleasantly surprised at how good this bike is. Admittedly it's only my view after about 40 minutes of riding, but if you walk away happy then it's a good sign I reckon. A few things I didn't mention on video is that the forks are a little soft but still give plenty of feedback, plus the different engine modes can only be switched when at a standstill. The brakes are good as you'd expect and the gearbox being new is a little clunky, but that too is understandable and would loosen up no doubt after a few 1000 miles. Test bike supplied by lamba motorcycles of Carshalton, Surrey. http://www.lambamotorcycles.co.uk/
