    Hi all, I'm Chris (or Gairo to my friends) and I've just joined after recently trading my 2015 CB500X in against a 2016 VFR800X Crossrunner, I pick her up next Wednesday (27th April) and I can't wait !!!
    I live approx 10 miles from Wolverhampton, out in the green belt.

    This is my current bike as it was when I bought it last year...



    This is the new replacement...



    I'll be sure to post up some pictures and my review of my first proper ride when I pick her up next week, she's only got 4 months before I go to France & Switzerland all across the Alps :001:

    Anyway, just wanted to stop by and say hello, be sure to say Hi and introduce yourselves when you can !

    welcome

    Cheers Adst, both my bikes have come from there, I like the guys there, they're a good bunch and Rob looks after me :028:

    I love the parallel twin of my 500X but after riding the VFR800 sports I was hooked on the inline 4, the grin factor is huge once that vtec kicks in !!! :156:

    Wouldn't that be an "IFR800" then?  :016:
