What happened to your Real Helmet? The one that saves one's jaws when one hits the road after hitting a deer.

This will be my Gilera helmet; 7bhp riding at 40mph...

She can be pushed to 55mph, but if fast is on the menu, I'll take the 178mph SP2...

And yes, with one my full face ARAIs on my head. 👍

 

 

Rode my neighbours' Revere again; he will sell it to my pal's son. Gr8 1st bike for a university student...

Quite chuffed with the result...

Online I could source "Turismo 125" or "Sport 150". But mine's a Turismo 150...

And I needed the decal to be a bit longer as I will position these tool holders at a different angle.  The daughter of a pal can cut decals, so vector files were made. :beer:

Do you own a pair of scissors? Then you can cut decals too. Any size or shape. Try to get them right way round if cutting back to front.  🤔

With outsider temps no more 30C°+, time for a proper clean and mufler respray...

Standard rear wheel is 110/90, but I prefer the 120.  In typical S F B fashion, I ordered a 120/90.  Which should have been a 120/80, just like the worn one....

 

Sure enough, the 9mm higher tyre led to the rear not to clear the ground when using the centre stand 😞

 

But, my YSS has height adjustment, so all ended well....

I love your VFR500, I grew up in the '80s and that was one of my favourite bikes. That is definitely the best colour scheme as well, and your SP-2 🤩, just brilliant.
