A few weeks ago our company was contracted to bring a special car from the UK to Japan in a 20ft container. This meant there should be enough space for a bike to fit inside too, on a metal pallet.
So my buddy in UK is preparing my old but fondly remembered (I've had it since it was nearly new!) VFR750 FL.
It will be making the trip to Japan for free - and finally be used again after having been stored away for almost 13 years!
Was a great all round bike (It's got nice mods like Maxton suspension, 6 piston Harrison calipers, carbon bits, etc) that I've missed.
Despite 71,000 miles on the clock (Nothing for a VFR!) it's still in mint condition and I'm looking forward to putting a lot more mileage on it in future and not using the RC as much as I do now - for long highway trips that add boring mileage that's ageing my SP2!
Finally I can carry comfortably passengers again too - Maybe I can even persuade my wife to jump on the back!
I know it's not an RC51 and so not very interesting to most, but I've put about 25,000km on my SP2 in the last 18 months and I don't want to keep adding mileage except when out to ride for fun.
Soon I'll have my old, but perfect solution to put back into use again.
I'm mildly excited & thought I'd share here.
