  1. Celebrational images and video to follow.... She turned 80,000km today; looking forrward to the 50,000 miles mark With our "intelligent lockdown"in place, getting outside is deemed ok, as long as you observe a few basic rules on keeping distance. That is if you donot have any COVID symptoms; then staying isolated inside is the instruction. Additionally I pump petrol at unmanned stations. Last weekend saw the first really nice weather, but I opted to stay at home. For long and behold, every Tom the bicyclist, Dick the walker and Harry the biker were out and about. Leading to overcrowding at touristy spots.... So the solution for next weekend local authoutities come up with is banning motorcyclists..... 🤢 as expected really..... But today, a quiet day so no risk of me bumping into crowds at the flower fields... Thank you my little puma/cougar for the miles! Made it to the sea shore; this will be shut for all vehicles over the weekend. No parking allowed. 1,5 meter distance markings, order left, pickup right Have a coke and fried mussels... My pal brought his drone,.... TBC!
  2. We have none of this crap in the Netherlands; sidecases have a VFR logo instead of reflectors. Bought an undertray for my SP2 (RC51); it has tabs for the reflectors. I use one for the road safety bell I was given yeeeeeaaaaars ago..
  3. If you have to ask, go for the BMW
  4. @vfr200 That is a fine looking banana VFR! I was told once by a tuner that the pair solenoid switches at/near idle rpm and that the valves itself will clog up over time/use anyway. My SP2 (with aftermarket BOS mufflers) never popped on decel. Still wanted a Power Commander (had some money to burn) and asked him about de-pairing. He said he would do it if I insisted, but he felt since they clog up, i'd waste money. But if I insisted, he would. YMMV
  5. Just mocking up, still waiting for the right stuff to arrive.. The red tape near the rank not right, needs brighter red. So using yellow wrap and spraying red paint Better To be continued....
  6. But euh...... 1st post without a picture? How do we now know you exist and are not merely a www mirage?
  7. If you are confident the exhaust is 100% tight then yes have look at the pair crap. AFAIK the PAIR kicks in at low revs. I'd start by unplugging the hose (near the airbox I assume) and block it. Large bolt or put a marble in, secure with a bit of tape. Go for your run,. Not owing a vted, I'd not know if/how that could affect things
  8. Decided to continue with plan Got the proper decals (aware Kevin never raced on Honda, but was/am a fan) Painted (part) of the tail The (old VF400) side panels are a bit rough so will wrap them Painted wrap in as close as possible w/o forking out for factory paint
  9. Euh oh.... "South of France" "Jura?" Forgive our geografically challenged American.... I am already glad he knows that the Netherlands are NOT part of Germany....
  10. Bienvenue à VFRD! Ass, pain in the ASS.... that's the word you didn't know? Remember 1813? 🇳🇱
  11. And while I am at it.... The chain rubs the fender; an OEM one has a factory dent. My fender is not OEM.... Gave it a few choice bangs and a coat of paint Plenty clearance now Fitted the backlight and plate bracket No allen or torx, they will look "wrong"
  12. @Gebruiker will be proud of me? Sure, I can buy a (longer) link pipe that doubles as db killer. To avoid any crap at tech inspection. There are no noise limits as the bike is pre 1972. But better be safe... But I already own a link pipe.... Sooooooo.....
  13. front sprocket rivetted to clutch basket...
  14. There was a Dutch owner a few years ago who bought a second hand, high mileage Vtec. Took it into Germany (no speedlimit on motorways) and after a few long high speed runs the engine went BOOOMMM..... When asked, the PO conceded hehad never changed oil, merely topped it up when required. Not an oil related falure therefor but a moron related one....

    One fine day

    Solid as a rock!
  16. During our government's "intelligent lock-down", going out alone, avoiding others is deemed ok. Even the 99% probabilty of rain/hail is acceptable Ah yes, there are the clouds! Sheets of precipitation in the background.... And long and behold... JOLO!! And, NO, I didnot speak to a single soul. PS @Skids SORRY!!!!!
