  1. Must say that after my wrist operations 2018, I was happy to ride a adventure bike, as my wrist do had limited movement. First had a 2011 1200GS Beemer, was not my bike, so traded it for a 1200 SuperTenere, like it a lot! But after son didn´t take the licence for a 125, and the bike I buoght for him (and fixed to top shape) , a 2009 Yamaha XT125X, It was just geathering dust, I put it up for sale. Actually got 2 trade suggestions for it, other was a 1986 Kawasaki GPZ500R (yes not a 600, thanks to cc tax things, like why the 86/87 VFR was a 700 in US...), nice ru

  2. Looks like the 8th gen rads and fan will just fit with the 8g header and 5g fairings, may need to keep the 5g oil cooler though.

  4. In 1978 I rode pillion from Townsville to Adelaide (around 3,200km) on a 78 model. It was really what got me in to motorcycling. I hadn’t even got a learners licence but my mate risked letting me ride on some of the deserted roads in outback NSW. Still here to tell the tale. Thanks Chris if you are still out there 😊

  11. If the CCT is fully mounted, then remove the key and install the end bolt and sealing washer. Think you are holding the Vaccum hose to the Air Intake Diaphragm on top of the air filter housing. You also have the control valve electrical connector removed from the valve. Also just to be sure did you transfer the steel cap to your new CCT? Or did you order a new cap as well? Do you have the Service Manual? You can download it from this site.

  14. I enjoyed your Report. Back in the fall of 2012 I took my SV650S up I77 from my North Carolina home stayed in Marietta for 3 nights and tore up as many Southern Ohio back roads as I could including 83 78 and 555. Really itching to do it on my 8th Gen VFR.

  15. Just to follow up on that SE Ohio ride report... I did a ride to the Allegheny National Forest last Saturday. Temps were a little cool in the morning, and while I was wearing a couple layers, I wished I'd brought my winter riding gloves. I planned to hit PA Route 666, and any other decent twisities I could find in that region. 666 is just okay. Pavement is decent, but the road gets kind of narrow at points, and much of it lacks painted lines. Scenery is nice, but 666 is not technical at all. It's also not that long, I think 30-35 miles tops. The only really good thing is the

  17. Chicken strip is a very poor term designed by peer pressure & hubris. I remember doing track-days on my CBR600F4 and having a 10mm strip of unused rubber on the rear through good riding technique. I was faster than my friends, I could turn inside them at will & was running with 900’s. My friends all used all their rear tyre to the edge, yet I was quicker than them. So not chicken strips in my case !

  18. The evolution of my fleets, started with the Reflex, added the Grand Vista for Serena, technically not mine but it was in my garage and I got to ride it. - Added the venerable Nighthawk 650 to the fleet. Believe it or not I was able to pack those three motorbikes, two kayaks, three bicycles, my lawnmower plus my car into that 1-1/2 car garage. Plus there was a workbench in there. - The next fleet iteration, after selling off the Reflex and Grand Vista I rode the Nighthawk for a few years before adding the Ninja 650 - For some crazy reason I

  19. Also on the topic of "alternative" choices: I present to you my latest acquisition, a 2001 Honda Silverwing 600. The water-cooler FI twin cylinder head is just like a VFR, but this has a belt-driven CVT transmission. 70,000km, and another example of "it looked better on eBay...". Going to have my work cut out for me with this one, the PO rode it till it started giving grief I think, an oil leak and also burnt stator (hey, it is a Honda!) for starters, and it has been left in the elements for a few years so the corrosion levels are epic. Then there are the incorrect fasteners all over, missing

  21. Added this '76 CB750F last summer, just getting around to cleaning it up. It's all original, locally owned bike, completely unmolested. Owner was retiring to Oregon and didn't want to drag it along. I like the look of the '75-'76 SS with wire wheels, before they went to the Comstars. It's just a classic.
