  1. Hey Guys,

    Picking up the bike upgrade today - a 98 VFR800
    50,000 Ks on the clock, one owner, heated grips (yeah yeah...), bar risers rack and bag and a staintune. These have a great pillion perch too, with a rack and bag to stop y'all perving on my wife's cute butt. Immaculate condition, obviously a fussy previous owner! - $5600

    Very happy - Great price (I think)

    Was a toss up between borrowing some dough and buying new(ish) or finding a good older used to see if this is the sort of bike we like. Decided to grab this and save some more for 6 months or so and look at something new down the track. In the meantime, it might be a bit older, but I think I'm in love!

    Oh and to avoid the wrath of Ktulu...


    Will post up some more pics when I get her home today.
  2. Shocking photoshop job [​IMG]

    Congrats on the purchase anyway [​IMG]
  3. Lol, not my pic...

    Guess it's the BMW dealer with his German fancy pants image to uphold...
  4. Was gonna say, it even looks like a scale model replica toy [​IMG]


    Traded in your last bike or kept it?
  5. Still have the old bike at the moment, but it is for sale. Have a couple of interested people...

    You should buy it! it'd sure be a step up from your 10R! :LOL:
