Hi from Inverness,
I have had the Xrunner  for 2 weeks now, still getting to grips with it. Traded in a blackbird which I had for 8years, great bike, felt like a change, lighter & slower!! had a 2001 vfr before that, which I really liked. It's looking a bit dirty, got caught in a 60 mile shower yesterday, seems to rain every time I take it out. Did a wee run to Edinburgh last week, managed to do 206 miles before the rapid flashing indicator made me stop for juice, took 18 litres, think I could have managed another 20 miles to Perth, was trying out on a run without the VTEC coming in just to see what I could get out of it as the wee runs previous had put some doubts in my mind. It came with the power bronze screen with a deflecter mounted, I have removed it as I was getting a vibration at speed, not tried it since removed though, will update if improved, cheers

Welcome.  :031:

I'm envious of your local roads!

Is the pink one your spare?  :008:
1 VFR simply isnt enough! Crossrunner for commuting, VFR1200F for summer fun.

 :031: I usually get bored with a bike after a couple of years & move on. But not this one! Seems the more I travell the more I like it & can't think of any replacement to justify changing, anything in its class that could be regarded as a upgrade. I've got a Givi Airflow screen that I have removed the top section for shorter runs & only use the top as a bug stopper on longer trips due to buffering. Haven't been across the WA border yet but soon. West Qld, NT, & north SA never had a problem making fuel stops. Thats not racing but not holding back either. Enjoy.
