  1. Went for a quick ride to Paluma with my mate Andrew and his new 6th Gen, only 8,000km on the clock and in pristine condition. He has owned a 6th Gen VFR before and has seen the light once again.
  2. The Creek has received a good flush out after recent heavy rains.

  6. I know the OEM Panniers are ridiculously priced (just over $2000 here in Australia) but they are oh so convenient, and they look great. Congratulations on the new bike, I love all four available colours, but like you prefer the red.
  7. Only rumors at this stage but one can only hope.
  8. This popped up on Bikesales (Australia) a few days ago. Don’t see too many with mileage this low anymore.
  9. OOOPS, it was late when I spotted this ad, sorry I didn’t look at every photo, just thought wow that’s some impressive mileage. On another note a mate just took delivery of this sixth gen yesterday. Very very nice.
  10. Would love one, unfortunately age has caught up with me and I am unable to tolerate the riding position on super sport bikes, my hands go numb very quickly, even the VFR fitted with risers can be a problem. Enjoy the new ride a new bike always puts a smile on your face. 😃
  11. You guys are very picky🤨 I wouldn’t mind having it parked in my garage.

    Have done the same thing, it is immediately obvious how much more room people allow when they see the camera. The more obvious the camera the better the result. I mounted a GoPro mount on the passenger seat cowl works a charm when I use it.
  13. Two years sounds a bit extreme to me, I draw the line between 4 and 6 years, depends how much use the helmet has. Wearing the helmet is what compresses the EPS lining, maybe it should be rated in hours, but who keeps a track of hours. Kilometres (miles for some) might work better but then some people cover a 100 km much quicker than others.
  14. Interested to here if you confirm Schubert’s claims that the C3 is significantly quieter than other helmets MaxSwell, I have to be honest and say I have never had or worn a helmet that I would consider quite. Earplugs are the only way I can get the noise levels down to a acceptable level at 100kmh or over. My current Shoei is still too noisy for me with the vents and visor all closed, and I wear my helmets very firm. I find most of the noise enters the helmet around the neck roll. I will be due for a new helmet very shortly I don’t want to fork out the extra $$$ if I still have to wear earplug
  15. There are some cool helmets out there Fritzer, let us know what you choose.
  16. After 10 years my personal opinion is it is time for a new helmet. It isn’t just the liner that deteriorates but the EPS itself compresses over time, lessening its ability to absorb an impact. I know helmets aren’t cheap but it beats the alternative.
  17. I can’t help with this as I don’t have a VFR 1200 (unfortunately) however I just googled service manuals for this bike and currently there is a free one online at www.moto4ru I would copy this fairly quickly as they sometimes get taken down pretty quickly. The manual will answer your question no doubt. Congrats on the new bike.
  18. Hi Mikus11, just saw your post, how did you go with this? I have the same sliders on my eighth gen. I believe the nut is captive, sounds like as Wiremanjon suggested it’s the spacer that’s has fallen down. Hope you got this all sorted.
  19. I feel your pain Dutchy. It’s great you thought to take a photo, I just wanted to stand her up again, like that was somehow miraculously going to lessen the damage. A photo is always good for the insurance company too.
  20. Well better late than never, sorry for the long delay. I have finally got a few days off so I will attempt to finish this ride report. Day 3 was spent riding around the Atherton tablelands. This area is fairly elevated and as a result is always a bit cooler than the coast, so it makes for a very pleasant days riding. Unfortunately I didn't take any photos this day, but to to give you an idea of the country I have attached a few photos from the net (yes I know that's cheating) This is Lake Eacham, one of two very picturesque lakes located very close together, the other being Lake Barrine.
  21. Agree with what HispanicSlammer said. My eighth gen felt the same when I first rode it, increased the rebound damping by 1 full turn and it felt like a different bike. Have a play with the rebound setting you can always reverse the adjustment if you don’t like it.
  22. 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.
  23. 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!
