    Hi All,

    Well, I finally found the right VFR800X, 2015 with low miles, Akra, heated grips, a centre stand, full luggage, and Tom Tom. This is my third bike in three years, and the third different engine configuration!

    Now to find the final accessories I would like to fit over winter!

    That's the one! I thought about holding out for a later post 2017 model, but this one with such low miles, condition, and options was too much to turn down.

    It's been moved from the original dealer to my local dealer, where it's being serviced and prepped before I collect it, hopefully later this week!

    A fine looking example of a CR. I'm sure it will give you years of motorcycling pleasure.

    It certainly appears to be, only been used in good weather through the summer, and garaged the rest of the time. The only negative is a couple of small marks on one of the panniers, but that can be sorted and was factored into the price.

    I wasn't considering a white one initially, but the more I see the picture, the more I'm coming around to it!

    Sounds like it has most practical accessories fitted, to mine I added a fender extender extender (fender extender and mudflap), Palmer adjustable screen bracket, GR Moto tailpipe and Ctek charging lead. The jurys out at the moment on hand guards.

    It appears to, even the centre stand! A Fender Extender and hugger are a must, and coming from a bike with handguards but also having Reynaud's, which affects my hands, the handguards are a huge help for me.

    May I recommend Barkbusters.

    Never been a fan of centre stands would rather have a "good" paddock stand with a few size spindles on rollers. Can move bikes in small spaces with rollers. Great fan of these bikes though. Downside is a new vtech may never be no more.prob more never actually. Enjoy.🍻
