Hi, I have mostly owned Japanese bikes in early years and still have one in the shed.  Recently bought a non started K100RT 1985 as a project after recently retiring however, its more challenging than initially thought. 
grateful of the support received via this forum and others....

WelKome!

There sure are a lot of Aussies here. Australia must have the highest per capita K-pox affliction of all of the countries in the world. affraid

Hi,

My story is similar, I only owned Japanese bikes before I got a brick, the brick is so completely different it was hard to understand. Slowly it dawned on me that in so many ways it's just like a small car engine, this demystified it for me and helped me to realise how incredibly simple it is, also in so many ways.

Agree with duck, you will soon be surprised with how many of these are still on the road, and in Mad Max movies (and The Big Lebowski to boot) Another statistic I've heard is that Australia has more Harley's per capita than any other country.

WelKome to the forum from a fellow (ex) Melbournian, born at St Vincent's. We lived in Frankston then Rosebud, 'til Dad took us to Tassie during my school years.

Some people believe there's a huge overpopulation of 'roos hopping about Down Under, too.

I think the K bike ownership thing amongst OZ's - as well as many other parts of the world - might simply be down to their overall reliability, spares availability, and ease of maintenance over the log haul. It's what drew me to them. If maintained, they're rock solid lumps that go and go.
