  3. 2018 Gold Wing v. VFR

    Part of the full, as in unlimited capacity motorcycle test in Japan used to be to upright a full dress police Gold Wing, the only guy I knew who passed it was a 6'4" Ozzie commercial diver and he struggled, the examiner told he was the first in Nagasaki to do it

  7. Powder Coating Exhaust Shields?

    I looked into ceramic coating the exhaust on my CCM £177 for the header, so that never happened Its a very specialist job and expensive I've used about every exhaust paint out there and they all come off fairly easily

  9. VFR 800 F - Development story

    Kwee you should look into Rapid Bike modules, I've got the Evo on mine and have left in the "self-learning mode", noticeable improvement in pick up and low down power The Race version allows you to alter the fuel and ignition maps plus various other things, autoblipper, raise rev limit, etc The units were in a group buy at VFRworld.com, Randy was the driving force behind it, unfortunately I missed it but got a good price on it from the UK importers The wiring harness that comes with it is the best aftermarket I've seen, all plugs labelled, highly recommended and of course you can just unplug it when you part with the bike

    Theres a zipper compartment on the top for documents, phone etc, so no it doesn't have side pockets I put my water bottle in the bag last then it can be got at without taking the bag off
  14. Tail bag size experience
