    The Kawhia Harbour - Waitomo L oop. 127 kms of 2nd and 3rd gear corners.
  2. Most weekends, looking out, searching for those Hobbits MaxSwell. As soon as we see one ...

    Seems ok. 1979 technology.

    Ghost town. This is the old butchers shop. Long deserted.

    Pictures of places worth riding from home.

    Middle of nowhere on a Highway that everyone forgot. No cellphone coverage but you get cold beer and great food. A must see pub for any motorcyclist visiting NZ.

    Great views. Still some snow on the mountains even after a long hot summer.

    Taking a break in the middle of the dirt section. Lucky only about 14 kilometres short. The VFR is no dirt bike. Was able to hold 55 kph in 2nd gear nicely. The lyrics 'slip sliding away' kept popping into my head.
  9. I have the early model, says the tank can take 18.5 litres. I can get close to that without having run dry, 17.9 the most I put in once. Touring, solo, full panniers and top box. Gets 280-290 km if I leave it that long. I normally fill up around 250-270. Just seems to be when everyone else is stopping or where a logical gas station is. Rare in NZ to have a stretch longer than that without a fuel station on the route.

    First Sunday run of 2015. 1984 VF400F and 1989 VFR750FK.
  11. A good wash with fresh water will be required. This guy is in the same vein as Burt Munro as far as I am concerned, just getting out there and doing it.

    The Beach Racing is mainly contested by large bore dirt bikes, but I thought I could hear a V4 ...
  13. Saw this at the beach racing. He came 7th against KTM and Kawasaki dirt bikes. Uber cool if you are into old VFRs. It is a 1988 with a GPZ front wheel, otherwise pretty stock, albeit minus some gear.

    Headed down to the Beach Racing during the Burt Munro Challenge at Invercargill this year. A good crowd was present on the sand dunes despite the weather.

    I am not sure where the fuel is though, and that seat is no Corbin!

    A sight to warm the heart of any VF fan.

    A 1988 Honda VFR750 RC24. Has a Kawasaki front wheel and dirt tires. But other than lots of other parts missing, looked pretty stock, well stock enough to be recognisable.

    Yep, amongst the large four stroke singles I could hear the 'Rrrrap' of a V4.
  19. ... And I am not sure this is a fake weld ... Looks and feels real ...
  20. Here is a frame that I never tire of ... nothing cheesy or fake here ...
