My FJR1300 has a new stablemate. An immaculate 2014 YZF-R1. Awesome!

Even Marquez reckons that is too far. The kid is a freak though.

Currently in the negotiating phase of the deal but it looks like this will be mine by the weekend. 2016 Honda VFR1200x Crosstourer. Only 8500k's on the dial and absolutely spotless. Looks like I'll be doing the the 14hr round trip to pick it up very early Saturday morning. All subject to inspection and test ride of course. Words cannot explain how excited Wifey is about my new bike. Hahaha
Cheers, Mike.

Drove down to Brissy from Bundy early this morning.  Checked out the bike and took it for a test ride.  Deal was done.  Wasn't confident with traveling back to Bundy with bike in the trailer so Wifey drove the car home and I rode the bike.  Called into one of the big bike gear shops and picked up a new helmet,  jacket, boots and jeans. Good ride to Bundy apart from a sore ass and a numb right hand. 
Cheers,  Mike.

Update********Made the trek from Bundy back home to Gladstone this morning. Love this bike. Might have to look at some cruise control though. Really struggling with hands going numb.

Couldn't help going for a short scoot this afternoon out to our local dam/lake. Used to ski out here all the time when I had my skiboat. Sometimes twice a week depending on my shift. Very upsetting to see it almost glassed out. Many good times and lots of laughs had out here.
Cheers, Mike.

I was looking at the MCCruise. It might even be my gloves that are causing the problem, believe it or not. As for the Turkey Beach ride, that is only an hour from home. There is a track from Turkey Beach through to Agnes Waters/1770 that we take regularly. Shame the ride is on our wedding anniversary. Not sure if Wifey will let me sneak off for a ride. Play it by ear.
Cheers, Mike.

I want one


8 cylinders, 2.0 litres… 334hp and 242kgs
, the PGMV8 is the ultimate street bike he came back to the Victorian bush to build. The carbon bodied, road-legal machine is a mechanical masterpiece, packing 334hp from its signature 2.0l V8. So to get the inside word, Pipeburn spent considerable time over the last six months getting to know the man and his machine.

But no fairing??
