  1. I wasn’t expecting such a response to my very trivial question, I have never had a PBJ sandwich guess I will have to give it a try.
  2. Thanks everyone for clearing that up. I had heard it was like jam but couldn’t imagine putting it on bacon and eggs. It’s all down to what you grow up with I guess. I will have to give it a try. Sorry to disagree St Stephen but I like nothing better than lots of fried (red) tomatoes with my bacon and eggs, heaven!
  3. Bit of a trivial question here for our American contributors, but I often here in movies or read in books people ordering a breakfast in America of say bacon, eggs, hash brown and Jelly? What is jelly in this context? Is there one type or several. Here in Australia jelly is a sweet you eat with ice cream. Puzzled 😕
  4. Not sure what you mean by rough on the surface, they are very smooth. They are Genuine Triumph saddlebags, they are not hard saddlebags so the shape is not totally even, but this is not a fault, just a characteristic of this type of saddlebags.
  5. DAY 2. Malanda to Cape Tribulation and Return. . After a slow start to the day, we headed down the Gillies once again. Turned North at Gordonvale and rode through Cairns heading towards Port Douglas. We stopped at Ellis Beach just North of Palm Cove for brunch. Very nice bar and grill here with views out over the Coral Sea (not the greatest Photo sorry) Next stop was the Rex lookout about halfway between Cairns and Mossman. I came close to getting run over while taking this photo, what I thought was the exit lane from the parking was actually the highway, I
  6. Hi Philois1984, Thank you for your donation of 25.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  7. Townsville is full of long straight roads, hence the cruiser. But don’t worry I am still keeping the VFR for the twisty stuff further afield. Married 34 years on 06/10/20 very special (tolerant) lady.
  8. Had breakfast there with my wife this morning Grum, a bit too late for the sunrise though. It certainly is a beautiful spot. Will try for the silhouette shot next time. Did you see my new ride Grum?
  9. Well this is what happens when you spend too much time on bikesales.com, you end up buying things!! I have wanted a second bike for a little while, decided I wanted something a bit different from the VFR. Ended up buying this after riding my brother in laws Triumph America. About to head away for our wedding anniversary, in the car though or it will be our divorce weekend. Will post more info when I return. Enjoying it so far, have only done about 100km on it. I keep scraping the foot boards, a VFR it ain’t.
  10. Great looking bike Vinnier, love the decals. Not overdone looks great. Enjoy the ride.
  11. As some of you may recall, I had planned a motorbike trip from Townsville to S.E. Queensland back in July. I still haven't gotten around to doing a ride report, too busy transporting all the goods everyone is buying on the internet during this bloody Covid outbreak (I am happy to have a job though!!). This will probably be done in one day at a time but I will try to be prompt with further installments. I am no Wilbur Smith so don't expect too much. My mate Andrew and I were going take a couple of weeks off to ride to the Gold Coast to go riding with my brother-in-law Grant. Unfortu
  12. That is a fantastic looking bike mate, very envious. I’m sure if you do decide to part with it you will have plenty of takers. Thanks for posting the photos.
  13. I only have 34,000km on my eighth gen so still a long way to go to hit 160,000km. I am more worried about me lasting the distance than any concern with the VFR. Enjoyed your write up TimC congratulations. Interested to see what your new machine is going to be ?
  14. Something to calm my nerves while I watch the Styrian GP tonight 😃
  15. Dave Moss (Two Clicks Out) also has a good video on this subject.
  16. Looking good dangeruss, love the black with the yellow decals. Hope you enjoy the ride. What is your reaction to the V4 engine?
  17. That’s certainly an epic trip and an epic ride report. Great effort. On my lunch break at the moment so haven’t the time to read it all, but will get back to it. Glad you are home safe.
  18. Watching WSBK live on Kayo, looking forward to race 1 should be a good race, plenty of riders in contention. Being a Honda fan boy I have my fingers crossed for Haslam and Bautista (maybe a podium finish 🤞)
  19. The Bowmore and Laphroaig are my favourites, haven’t tried the Black Oyster or the vintage Caol ILA.
  20. Welcome Bikus, always room for another helpful VFR owner, I need all the help I can get🙂 hope you are enjoying the RC 79.
  21. I agree, it looks great. Will check them out.
  22. I bought a Dowco Guardian cover 4years ago and am very happy with it. Not the cheapest cover available but very well made. Still going strong, the bottom elastic still feels as good as the day I received it. .
