    • Bike: VFR1200XD

    I’ve owned the VFR1200XD for one year now and has been an exciting learning curve for me. Can’t thank you all enough for hours of great reading and insight.
    Bike has 5500 miles on it and yesterday I rode over 400 mi for the first time.
    I do miss not having a clutch especially during traffic jams, but love the DCT the rest of the time. Twice I played in the mud and survived, but will stick to the pavement as much as possible. Hope to see another VFR on the road , mostly Harleys and Beamers here. Haven’t ridden in years and have the bugs gotten a lot bigger?   :004:

    hello and welcome mate.

    one of the things I love moving from a naked bike to a bike with a big screen is I can now walk into a hotel to ask for accommodation with my jacket in the state I put it on as opposed to it being "tie-dyed" by bug splat. How civilised I now feel.

    :005: You'll run over all the pedestrians! :008: Yeah, just an unfunny joke about how in the UK we call it a road and our pavement is your sidewalk.  :038:

    Welcome to the forum - I've read far more than I've posted but they're a helpful bunch here if/when you want some advice.  :152:
