    I agree Grum, I am going to guess somewhere in the Dolomites, Italy ?
  2. Great explanation Tman , very clear and concise. Thanks.
  3. Just a couple of photos from a quick trip over to Magnetic island for the day. Caught the car ferry over had lunch and sat on the beach for a couple of hours. The weather was perfect. Car ferry cost $60 for the bike, rider and pillion which is only a little more than two tickets on the passenger ferry.

  5. In an effort to escape from the endless miles of straight roads in North Queensland I headed 1500km south to Kyogle New South Wales for a few days of riding the twisties around Northern NSW and Southern QLD with my brother in law. Had the bike serviced prior to departure including a small hole in the bottom radiator fixed ( I now have an R&G radiator guard fitted) On my way through Brisbane I had a new set of pilot 5s fitted and some new rear brake pads. The weather was cool (actually freezing for a Nth Queenslander) 4 to 6 deg in the mornings, otherwise it was perfect. My brother in laws bike is a 1979 Triumph Bonneville Special that he has owned since new, only his second bike and probably the last bike he will ever own. Having lived in Kyogle for around 20 years he is a human GPS for a radius of about 300km. It was of course over all too soon. 1500km of straight roads later I was back in Townsville. All up I did just over 4500km the bike ran perfectly the whole trip. It may be useful to know that over the first two days I used all the coolant in the reservoir/overflow tank. I was panicking that I still had a leak in the radiator but since topping up the tank on the morning of day three it hasn’t moved. Was obviously a lot of air in the system after the radiator repair. The bike is now cleaned and polished and I am planning my next escape from straight roads.
  6. It’s part number 5. If you search adjusting chain on a Honda vfr800 on YouTube there are several videos showing how the tool is used. It is very easy.
  7. Thanks for these 2015 VFR, have copied a few I am interested in.
  8. I was wondering the same thing? My GUESS is a mark or fly ect on the lens? Great photo.
  9. I don’t feel robbed at all. And good luck finding any tradesman in Australia who only charges $35 an hour for labour. Some people can always get things cheaper, better and faster.
  10. Had my local locksmith install mine, he said it was fairly easy 😏. It cost me about $70. I am sure it saved me a lot of hassle. While on the subject of panniers, someone mentioned something about rubber covers for the bottom mounting point ? Has any one received these with there panniers as I didn’t. Have been concerned that the panniers would move around too much possibly causing damage. Have looked on the Honda parts list but can’t find any mention of these.
  11. That DAM Exhaust really suits this bike! looks great.
  12. Congrats and welcome RedBoll, post a few pictures they speak a 1000 words😁
