My Sunday Blast (Non Bandit)

Post  2wheelsagain on Mon Dec 29, 2014 4:57 am

Yesterday I visited an old hill climb that I used to do regularly until the road surface wasn't repaired and it became dangerous.
Ewok and I rode it a few months ago and although rough it wasn't too bad.
Its 14km from Boolarra to Mirboo Nth (Vic) but I managed to stretch it to 330km or so home to home.
Here's the video. Apologies for the wind noise. Faulty ext mike jack.

I have to declare. This bike is absolutely brilliant Smile

Practice makes perfect!  Good to hear that the viffer is still living up to, or exceeding, expectations.  bounce

To be honest the "sports" side of it exceeds expectations by a long way. As a tourer it does exactly what I was after so that part meets expectations.

Nice quiet looking road 2W.  The VFR sounds pretty quiet as well.  Any plans ?

Thanks Hammy Smile
There was a fair bit of traffic on the road. As I was about to leave several cars went past so I had to wait for a while. The car I did pass had a 5 min head start on me. As I was removing the camera he drove past slowly and said something through the window.  I'm assuming it was encouragement or praise but I suspect it was some form of cranky old bastard abuse Wink
No plans for a can yet. I can't find anything that works with the panniers on and off.  I've already done the standard "flap" mod so there is no performance gains and it does growl more than stock now.

The road surface although it's not exactly great, it does have some decent corners. I riden the VFR1200 before & they are a great bike, although very quiet with the standard pipes  Shocked 

thanks for sharing the vid  Wink
