Well it's no secret that the Hornet is gone, and that I have been in buying mode for a couple of weeks. The search is over; as of the middle of today I am the somewhat bemused owner of a 1995 Honda VFR 750. Why bemused? Because it's three years older than the Hornet, for one..... So why 'More blue'? Well the bike has been owned for the last 7 years by a Sydney classic bike racer, and a few years ago he decided that he was sick of the Honda red, and had a mate repaint the bike blue....... Candy Hawaiian Blue, actually The exact same colour as the Hornet So while there are plenty of '95 VFR-750s around, mine is unique . It's got 78,000 kms on the clock, and actually hasn't been ridden for two years; Gary has a classic Kawasaki which he rides all the time. But it DOES have a high Staintune, a full Ventura rack with the proper bolts, and the toolkit has one of those super-easy-to-lose, super-hard-to-replace Ventura rack bolt toggles that you keep on your keyring to tighten and loosen the rack bolts. I like the polished rims, and lots of other stuff. The bike's in for a service ATM, and for fitting of some heated grips, and getting sorted out for registration; hopefully by the weekend, (but I doubt it) I will be sampling the delights of the Southern Highlands from a different perspective.
