    New Owner from Birmingham

    Greetings VFR800X Forum legends,

    I've been off bikes for about 3 years after selling my 1200GS and have just purchased a 2015 VFR800X for pleasure purposes.

    A 2015 high mileage fella, but well cared for by two previous foster parents.

    I always join a forum for any vehicles or bikes, as they always contain a plethora of friendly and helpful people.

    So get ready for a few questions once I pick her up (Friday).

    Well, I sold her in 2017, so don’t think I’ll notice 😊
