  1. hi netriders,

    as an ex part time road rider / current dirt biker...i've been lurking on this forum for a while...but i'm extremely happy to say i'm now back on the tar with new adventures ahead of me in the form of a fuel injected V4 :grin:

    after a month of test riding a triumph RS955 , FZ6, GSXr 750, and a new BMW 1200... after riding this one down the road 400 metres, i knew would buy it....she a one year old Black Pearl 2007 Honda VFR800..got her for $12000... she's immaculate... 10,000k's... staintunes ...full service history...venura bag and rack (i removed on sat.)

    she's so smoooth...comfy...lovely dash and controls lol... and the power is great especially for me being used to my WR250f offroad. (pic below)

    i took her to the Nat. Park / Kangaroo Valley / Kiama on sat and did the old pac hwy and back yesterday...i even took her out last night for a solo run at 11pm for an hour...woohooo :p

    i've been riding dirt bikes for 20 years and used to ride a mates 2000 model vfr alot when he also had an Aprilia...well as you see in the pic below, he now has an '07 MV F4R now (see pic below)...and i've basically been following that around for the last two days...and omg that thing mooooves.. :shock:

    oh my...how good is to be out there again on the big open roads on my own baby...
    i bought a new AGV lid but need some new leathers and road boots as the jeans and CAT boots i have, don't quite cut it...any suggestions welcome :)

    the only "bling" i want is something to replace that huge hideous ugly number plate holder hanging off the back...again, any suggestions welcome lol

    i could ride her everyday but no, she's a weekend good time girl and i must "cage on" during the week...anyway, shes asleep now untill next weekend...lets hope the suns out :grin:

    i hope to see some of you soon on some of the sydney netrides....please feel free to make any comments, suggestions or pay outs :p
    safe riding...
