Hello from Norway!

I'm 27 and got my license and a '97 diversion in 2015. The reason I got the bike is riding for pleasure, and to go new places. Like last summer when I went here: Image
The Geiranger fjord (map)

Now I need to take care of a bad sound she is making, so I can go on a new adventure. If anybody wants to help me please have a listen to the sound in this video:

phpBB [video]

First, I thought it was the chain hitting something, but I think it looks good here, so now Im not sure.

Anyways Im here to learn more about the bike and to see what all of you are up to with your bikes :D

Hey, Panther. Welcome to XJR.

I have no idea what is causing your knocking noise but what a cool video of the chain.

Welcome to the community Panther, possible loose sprocket or is something like the rear mudguard loose?
Not sure entirely what it could be, sorry I couldn't help much. I'll have a look around and see if I come across anything :)
