Speechless at what U did with the Viff. U define the term 'biker'.
Most of them I know truck their SBKs down and ride around their city.

I've ridden a similar exact red VFR800 for quite a while and the noise was not to my taste. I dont know what to compare it to.
But, the torque delivery of this engine compared to inlines is like comparing a CRDI engine to a MPFI petrol engine. Its like when a locomotive rams into U .

So the biker is back, sunday rides gonna be more fun!!
From a good bike to a great one, congratulations robin.

manson.

p.s. rudy, to clear the haze, rt got the bike from the guy he didnt take to, but turned out to be a nice chap, the exhaust he did not think he'd like, but finds sweet now, the colour which was his first choice and the bike with MH plates!!!

Man....sigh! This was so well written added to the fact that VFR is such a fantastic motorcycle It felt as if I was riding it myself . Biker to biker you can probably imagine how I feel now without my gixxer, but its time to celebrate your new fab acquisition and motivation for me to get a new ride.
Congratulations on your new ride my friend! Ride safe!
What a bike....

RT - There are some of us who wanna be bikers, but you put us all to shame with your passion for 2 wheels. Shipping it was never an option was it? I wish I could have ridding along side on the silver VFR.

Awesome buy. Nice pics. and super super write up.

Give one kiss to the Viff from my side.

Rudra - great work on PS.
