The GSXR-1000 found its new owner on the weekend, the bike was not used for what it was born to do instead taking me to Uni and work. I've always wanted something comfortable with a V-twin engine but there aren't many out there with an affordable price tag to choose from. So here's my new "Old man's"(what my friends call it) bike, the VFR 800 This machine is beautiful, not fun as the GSX-R but it really reminds me why I rode at the start. My first learners bike, the ZZR250, introduced me to the feeling of freedom, open to nice fresh air, relaxation and comfort. Most of that disappeared when I got the CBR600 and then the GSXR1000. Now realising that I'm not much of the adrenaline and fast rider but rather the comfortable and relaxing type, and the VFR800 meets all of the requirements for a pleasurable ride. Everything about this bike is smooth and graceful. From the ride suspension to banking through a corner. Not as powerful as a super sports but very comfortable in traffic for commuting, which is what I need it for. I don't track nor go hard up the mountains, my license and life are too valuable to risk. So after 4 bikes I think this ones a keeper until I get a real job I'll get myself a fun weekend/track bike for doses of adrenaline.
