I think I am more exited than when I got my RE. Check this out for my first post on netrider: Well I still love the busa, and I still want one, but the VFR800 is just more suited to my lifestyle. I have spent the last year on a GS500F that the wife bought me. I am booked in on the 5th of next month for my licence and I am planning to test ride the VFR the next day. I am tempted to put a deposit down now so that a bike is ready to go on the friday!! Cheers and thanks for all the tips so far people!
