Dutchy

VF500F2 Aka MBD Incubation Period At Least 52 Years

Recommended Posts

Today I had to switch to reserve @232km

Petrol station was right up ahead; 12.2 litres went in, so make that 1:19

This time my riding was more the way I like it, so did not achieve the the same monster mileage as before.

WPHB says the tank will hold 16.5liter

Thats a good milage I think!

If you prefer black

http://www.ebay.com/itm/HONDA-VF500F-VF1000F-CB1100F-CB750F-CB900F-CB1100F-TRAC-FRONT-FORK-DECAL-/191618722477?

Guy in Spain makes them and is a prompt and pleasant guy to do business with.

I asked fro 1 red and one black, but one can ofcourse order 2 in the same color.

If you still want the red, I will post it tomorrow.

PS: I send him my picture and told him it was ok to use.

No reason to stop working. Today i wasn't working under a dry roof but on a roof. Not the right place when the rain pours down again. But job done !! Clothes are still wet.

I like the high-security fence to keep people who covet others' possessions out.

Upon buying the bike, I had seen that a section had been patched

I think you need to trade Linda for a model with fewer miles.

Dutchy, they are mild steel, prone to corrosion. The only company that makes a system for this bike that I could find was Predator Exhausts in the UK, they do a full system. Not sure if you can get originals anymore, they will just rust out again :(

Looks like this & found pic before & after CBR600 wheel change
