Seb I must know. What tail is on that Blue VFR and also what slip on did you use?

Really like your Crosstour. Really interesting bike that fits right between the Africa Twin and the VFR1200X.

I have a small garage and four bikes. Something has to give as I can barely walk around in it.

 

Just for clarity, mine's a Crossrunner, the VFR800X.

 

The Crosstourer is the VFR1200X. :beer:

Oops. Yes, Crossrunner. My mistake. That's an interesting way of revising the VFR. Very cool bike.

Technically, I still have 4 cos there are still several parts of my 98 model that I haven't sold yet. But I need a bike for sunny Sunday afternoons, an RC51 perhaps....

 

My garage is not big enough....:pissed:

It's difficult competing with the likes of BrianF who's photos are superb and as I don't have his photographic skills, 'bling' is the only way!  :goofy:

Do scooters count?  I've just sold the Vtec so technically the VFR800FE is my only motorbike but there are 3 Vespas to keep it company.  The blue on is 53 years old!

  I was going to ask what about the Tornado but the old bus doesn't exactly qualify as "Bling" does it :goofy:

So, in the summer I sold my 2005 VFR and I bought this... (CRF250L) because I couldn't get an Africa Twin CRF1000L.

 

Then in December, I figured the bike wouldn't be coming, so I bought this. (Honda Ridgeline).

 

Then a week later in December, I got a call from the local Honda dealer, "your bike is here...." So I ended up getting this... Africa Twin CRF1000L.

 

Now I have a problem... MBD. So I have to get rid of this... XL1000V Varadero. :)

Had a Varadero for a few years. Found it top heavy but so comfortable and so reliable. Never needed a rectifier.lol

My name's Murat and I have MBD :happy:.

 

Here's my stable, nothing significant or interesting here but I love them all.

First is my 2010 1200F. I've grown quite attached to it over the years. Pictured during a trackday at Istanbul Park here.

 

The Kawasaki KLR 600 is a 1993 model, which is the same as my old KLR, only mine was white with green graphics. I sold it in '96 and regretted it ever since. I bought a clean example last May; well as clean as can be expected for a bike this age in Turkey. It was purely a nostalgic purchase but I was quickly reminded why I loved it. Light (for a streebike), nice handling, so comfortable over Istanbul's potholed, bumpy inner city streets. It also allows me to do light off-roading. I am going to get this one painted in the color of my original bike, rebuild the motor and upgrade the suspension.

 

The red scooter is my first bike, an '88 Vespa PX200. I had it repainted a year ago, after I got rear-ended by a car. It is modified quite extensively. Ported, piped, cut crank, 30mm. carb, 210 cc Malossi big-bore kit, adjustable bitubo shocks, front & rear, tubeless wheels, modified front brake etc. This puppy surprises much bigger bikes and cars on tight roads. I'm taking my daughter on a very slow ride around the block here on her school's final day last summer, it's become a tradition of sorts.

 

The tiny Honda CY50 is a 1984 model, it was given to me by my uncle. It was in his summer house and was ridden by the caretakers who managed to totally wreck it over the years. The engine was totally gone, the only remaining parts are the crankcase, cylinder head and valve cover. The engine is now 80cc, with a high (!) performance cam, a bigger carb and a high performance filter.

 

The other scooter is my dad's 1993 Yamaha XC125 Beluga who bought it but hardly rode it. I recently had it refreshed, powdercoated the frame, installed bitubo rear shocks, and a new front-end (someone -not my dad- bent it) etc. It's such a sweet, smooth performing scooter, so well suited to Istanbul's crowded streets.

Didn't think I qualified to post, looking at all the fine specimens here, I'm at the beginning of my 'multiple bike build disorder', as of today:
One stock VF750, one in build mode, one stripped down(was freighted from Melbourne), today one in desperate need of repair/or parts and a '95 VF500, thanks Dutchy. That's me sorted for a couple years....ace67d63593745d0072d845670b17b6a.jpgd320339bde776f28880716e10d950ae4.jpg2c7cae36db3dae564426bb2c84098852.jpg

How does a bike only do 28 000 k's and look like it's done two hundred.....some people!
