  1. This is not a boring old twin. The Aprillia has a 270° crank, and sounds and behaves like a V twin, just more compact. Don't underestimate the new generation of twins with the crossplane cranks, they have huge amounts of torque and are just as intoxicating as the V4 was in its day. With the power to weight ratio, latest equipment and all the electronics, they will leave the poor old VFR far behind. But it's not a sports tourer, they are out of fashion I'm afraid, and it doesn't seem like anyone is in a hurry to bring them back. Sad really. I couldn't find a replacement, it's why I bought a 1050 Sprint.
  2. That is a fantastic looking bike Captain, well done. It brings back very fond memories.
  3. The only concern with the ones you point out is no cooling. I've bought these: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Nighteye-72W-9000LM-H4-HB2-LED-Headlight-Kit-Hi-Lo-Beam-Globe-Bulbs-6500K-White/252920366279?epid=6026513713&hash=item3ae33a84c7:g:noAAAOSwwvtb08nX&frcectupt=true And I'm very happy with them. They dont shine the light forwards, but back towards the reflector. They also have a cooling fan and fit the 5G. Light output is high, and low beam cut off is the same as stock bulbs. High beams are much much better. I do wish they wern't so white, I prefer around 4000K which is still white but I can't seem to find them.

    Thanks for the positive comments. Still going and looking well, turned over 130,000km last month while doing the Oxley with mates. The only worn part that needs replacing badly is the VTR lower forks as they are worn beyond service, hard to find in good condition.

    I'll set up a Sydney riders thread and see how it goes. I mostly ride during the week whenever I find a bit of time to get away, or early Sunday morning. I also do the Oxley and Phillip Island for WSBK every year.

    I'm always up for a ride, The Putty/Wolombi/Old road loop is pretty good, ot just an early morning ride up the Putty to the old truck stop, an old bloke has set up a wood fired BBQ there and cooks up bacon and egg or snags in a roll with a pot of coffee always brewing, breakfast of champions.

    No more than any other twisty road when all the idiots come out. During the week it's empty, and if you get up early you mostly have the road to yourself. A lot of the tight stuff has been recently resurfaced and its bloody good.
  9. If you're asking how the new shim stack on the top compares to the old C33 stack on the bottom, the answer is they are fairly the same. Slightly stiffer bottom shims will slightly change how and when the shims bend, but they are not that much different. They might give a bit more flow on high speed bumps from my reading. But if you're doing compression valves, you need to do rebound as well.
