    Gday from Down Under. Pick up my 2012X on Friday. 1 test ride and I was sold. Very happy and the ride can only get better as I get more acquainted with the bike. I'll have a few questions for the forum as I put more miles on her. Looking forward to few long adventures   RJ

    Thanks Wack. Got a 5000km trip in mind around May. I've got 3 big shaft drive touring bikes in the garage but most of the riding will be on sub standard roads with big stretches of nothing but potential road kill so I'd only consider riding the VFR. The jurno's reckon on a VFR1200X you can do 1000km/day without your arse caving in. That's a bonus when you hit the pub after a long day in the saddle  :)

    You'd better aquaint your self with the airfilter access for a trip like that, i am assuming it might get dusty where you are heading  :164:

    Safe riding mate

    Thanks everyone. My first purchase will be a K&N air filter. This is my first modern Japanese EFI bike so I'm unsure what I can and can't do regarding pipe and air filters. I have 3 modern EFI Euro/US bikes that rode terribly with the standard restrictions and a lean fuel map (curse those emissions bureaucrats). Opening up the air cleaner, pipes, and a fuel remap transformed them to a 100% better bike. My VFR has an after market slip on. Will I need any remapping with the higher flowing K&N air filter ?. Would the VFR benefit from a remap purely to enhance the ride with better fueling. It wouldn't surprise me to learn the Japanese have nailed the engine mapping for the real world and no remapping is required  :)
