Yep, get in line, I know I would be... 

 

But until that happens, I picked up one of these new left overs this year and highly recommend it, 2018 CBR1000RR SP, red/wht/blu, gold wheels, Ohlins, Brembo, quick shifter up & down with auto-blip, TFT display, and yep she's got some power too.  

Thank you Honda, heck of a bit a kit ya built with this one! :fing02::fing02:

Would love one, unfortunately age has caught up with me and I am unable to tolerate the riding position on super sport bikes, my hands go numb very quickly, even the VFR fitted with risers can be a problem. Enjoy the new ride a new bike always puts a smile on your face. 😃

Other than the “1000” decal, I really like Steve Rapp’s bike.

Just noticed the sign on the wall. A subliminal message about the VFR?😃 Even if it is a covered boat, I still want it.

That paintjob is a FAIL for me....

MAYBE loosing them bags will make it a "possible"...

 

 

 

 

 

RWB for me is......

But whatever lights one candle enough to burn some expendable cash..... 🙂

 

 

Not my bike, not my favourite either...

Afbeelding kan het volgende bevatten: motor en buiten

Plus they forgot to continue the blue/white on the seat cover.......

 

This is an interesting attempt.  It's almost right.  But they obviously felt constrained by the fairing contours and, I think, made some wrong choices.  The red stripe should have continued to narrow as it went above the rear turn signal protrusions, for example (leaving them white).  And the blue on the top fairing seems too high at the back.  Also not sure why they didn't continue the stripes over the middle fairing vent area?  Everyone's a critic!

 

Ciao,

On the pull, just went there to get a lumber, a bit of fluff.....  :laugh:

 

 

 

 

Working in South Queensferry, I'd occasionally visit DEC's mfg plant in Ayr....

 

 

 

Sorry @VFR80025th for the hijack....

Ummm.... No.

 

(Though the idea of riding around on a moving advert for cancer sticks in this day and age does have a certain antisocial appeal!)

Cruising around and just saw this thread. Damn I love this paint scheme. Are there color codes floating around out there for the red and blue? This may be what I’ve been looking for to make my white ‘14 more appealing to me.
