    Hmmm, I forgot to mention my bike - I'm a Honda V4 nut and have a very highly modified '94 VFR750 - original factory black. Mods include:

    - 2004 R1 forks, radial brakes, front wheel
    - CBR929 tripleclamps
    - Epro billet clip-ons
    - '92 VFR750 8-spoke rear wheel
    - Ohlins shock
    - Indigo stainless full headers mounted to Wolf dual underseat canisters
    - modified bodywork (think NR750)
    - an 840cc overbore kit is in the works for 120rwhp

    There's nothing quite like a V4!

    We need pics!!!!

    I know a few blokes with VFR's (one is now deceased - the bike that is!) and with aftermarket cans, they sound awesome.

    That's great Jim. Did you ride one before you bought it? Have you got many good roads nearby? Hope you really enjoy it. Stay safe and happy riding.

    I thank you Ninja. I didnt actually test ide it because there was a small matter of my license being two years out of date and they would nt let me try it without it, but I knew Id like it, and I do. Plenty of good roads round here, but the biking weather is still a few weeks off.

    Guess it's my turn...

    I'm Pat (or Patrick, whichever you want), I'm 25 and am from Stockport which is near Manchester in Britain. My job is as a Building Services Design Engineer, working for a consultancy who design heating, ventilation etc for industrial buildings.

    Have been a fan of motor racing of all forms since the mid-nineties, running through F1 and Touring Cars, to CART/Champ Car and F3000 and most other things. I got into British Superbikes in about 1997 and then MotoGP and WSB in 2000 and haven't looked back. I also set up and ran my uni karting team for three years after trying it when I first got there, and am doing an indoor series this year amongst other things. I have not yet ridden a motorbike.

    Away from racing, I love listening to music and going to gigs, stage shows too - comedy in particular. Reading, cookery, and social drinking [what else? ] fill up much of the rest of my time when not messing about on the net.

    My fave riders are Chris Walker, Yukio Kagayama, Alvaro Bautista and Hiroshi Aoyama at the min. Am also in a big James Toseland mood right now

    What pom isn't? ... Seriously though, he looks to be the next brit that will give MotoGP a big shake, next year of course, replacing Toni Elias? .. Or Carlos Checa? Whichever one fails.. (one will)
    I opened up all the windows..the air is cold, the tub is boiling hot..It's like Sweden, man. Sweden!

    I've also stuck this thread so any newbies (there seem to be plenty about) can have a look without it slipping down the page.
