This weekend saw lots of driving, not much sleep, but I finally took possession of my new toy… Gracie II. We set off Friday night, for the 12 hour drive down to inspect and test ride the bike. After handing over the money, we loaded her up on the trailer and drive half way back before stopping for the night to get some sleep. Up at 4am next morning for the remaining 6 hour drive back home. So in 36 hours, we drove for 24 of them. But it was all worth it. Now more about the bike. 1998 VFR800, in pretty good nick. Staintune high-mounted exhaust, which is very loud, and everything else is original and in good nick. I do have a few plans to personalise her, including ; Honda Tank Pad (off ST1300) New Custom seat, maybe a 2 piece like the Sargent Set of Helibars to raise the bar height Try and rework rear cowl to fit the grab bars/rails at the same time New mirrors, probably more down the track, to get rid of those rubber condom covers Full review and replace whatever needs of the electrics system such as R/R Install a Honda Marine Voltmeter gauge to monitor above problem Then detail and polish, ready for riding in just over 2 months Anyway, here are some pictures… At the bike shop What was looking at me for the next 12 hours... And finally home... Now the fun bnegins with sourcing all the bits and pieces that I need and work on her over the next two months. I can't wait !
