Hello from Bogota, Colombia
on: June 13, 2015, 03:26:43 PM
Hi everybody. I'm a new and very very happy [emoji93] [emoji93] owner of a fantastic vfr800x-2015. Far  from the majority of you but attending your opinions and knowledge.

My recent bikes came from a huge 90 transalp, a vstrom #1, a vstrom #2 and a NC750DCT in last december, but looking for more power finally landing in the first cr800x 15 in the Colombian roads.

I don't have words to describe my feelings about the power and the maneuverability both in the the city traffic and the roads.

Hi,

Have you tried it yet on the motorway? How better is it from the original one? 

I'm 1,87 and thinking of get one windscreen like yours. I get a lot of buffeting in the helmet, and for the long runs I don't want to get behind the tiny windscreeen bent forward all the way.

Cheers,

Hi Chilled: Do you read spanish. Te puedo explicar en detalle como lo hice, pues esa cúpula la fabriqué en mi empresa, pero en Inglés me resulta tortuoso.
