  1. Hi All...

    Here's my first bike... and i have to say, i am really enjoying the ride.

    2011-06-29%2017.22.15.

    Its a 2000 Model, Originally bought in Lilydale by a lady owner as a first bike, and the previous owner had the bike for 7 Years. In this time it has only done 11700kms. So its fair to say she's a pup!

    Took off the OEM tyres and replaced them with a set of Michelen Pilot Powers with a slightly wider rear, 150/60/17r.

    Also scored a neat megacycle muffler with a removable baffle. Makes the bike sounds great!

    Hopefully tomorrow, my Rear Hugger shows up...

    Looking forward to meeting a few of you at some of the more regular rides.

    Sing out if you're a VTR owner... would love to pick your brains about the bikes :)

    Future mods..... twin headlamp, and a Tacho Cluster or progressive shift light

    Andy.

  11. Nice.... might have to look at a hugger for mine. Sick of cleaning off all the crap flicked up by the tyre. Every time I ride on a dirt road recently, it seems to be wet and mud goes friggin everywhere.
