IMAG1834.jpgIMAG1818.jpgIMAG1816.jpgAnd it must be contagious.......  Thank you Keny!!!   :beer:

 

Went to look at 2 today, 1st one was grotty beyond belief so I didnot even make an offer

 

The other one was the other side of NL so all in all a 300 mile day today.

 

44k km's/27.5K miles

From the year I started working, 1986

Came with a set of new Bridgestone's, purrs like a small lion....

The OEM indicators are gone unfortunately.... 😞

 

 

 

 

Early rise tomorow for a 7AM start of a mc tour with some friends; they will be surprised no doubt!

Early start to avoid the mass of HD and HD clones clogging up the dikes  :goofy:

so no iron butt off the cuff but a good spin nevertheless.  :beer:

Today was a very special, albeit sad day.   Fred, a very active member in the Dutch VFR Club Nederland had passed away following a mc accident before Easter. He never woke up from the coma.

Not sure, but saw his daughter Candy.   If there ever was an apt name for a female....       Speaking of raw, utter sexiness.............................      

And it must be contagious.......  Thank you Keny!!!     Went to look at 2 today, 1st one was grotty beyond belief so I didnot even make an offer   The other one was the other side

Great looks. Best of luck with the Honda. Don't you have an '87 LM 1000? Now there's a contrast in riding experiences!

I, until recently had a 5 Gen. and still have the LM 1000, + 4 other Guzzi's. Good fortune, R3~

Congrats Dutchy, you will love that bike. I put on more miles on my little 500 than any other bike I have owned. That was years ago but I wish Honda would bring out that bike again. They would sell millions.

Nice video Dutchy. Does she really purr that low? Must be an effect of the mike, the sound amplified the low frequencies. Se must purr a but higher in the frequencies.

So, how does it feel compared to our 4th gen? Does it make you appreciate the 4gen more or not??

Nice scenery too.

The purring is the V2 engine in the Honda Transalp that is doing the filming

 

It boldly goes where no VF500 will ever go..

This mind you NOT on dirt trackt nobly tires....

 

 

The VF500 is far more nimble, as expected. It weighs less and with a 120 rear (110 is even standard).....

The fun is that you can really revs the thing without reached sily speeds as fast as you do on the VFR750....

 

 

 

 

 

Boy was the underside clarty...

Gefeli, Leon! I know what a hassle owning multiple vehicles is over there, so you must really like it. You made a great choice.

Echt, echt mooi.
