Hello from Japan

#1 Unread post by jack6251 »

Hi everyone, I'm currently teaching English in Japan for a year and bought myself a Honda CL 400cc to run around on. Just thought I'd sign up for info, help and contribute to things here. :)

Hello Jack and welcome to the forum. I'm going to ask you to post a picture of your bike. We love to see pictures of bikes.
People say I'm stupid and apathetic. I don't know what that means, and I don't care.

Once I found a review on this motorcycle in Japanese, I tried to translate the article into English, but the text turned out to be distorted and I still did not understand whether this is a good motorcycle or not. What do you say?

With which translator did you translate the information? There are many mechanical translators that are not adapted for all languages, one of them is Japanese, which is a very difficult language, especially for mechanics. If it was important for you to evaluate the motorcycle by reviewing it, then you should have turned to the professionals for an accurate translation.

I found a review of a Japanese motorcycle on YouTube but it is in Japanese with no subtitles. If someone knows where you can see the review in English, I will be very grateful to you for the hint. I practice Arabic a lot and can dobut Japanese seems so difficult to me that I don't even try to understand it.
