    Hey dudes,
    From Singapore here. Traded in my Blackbird for a spanking new 2008 VFR...

    Last check in the singaporebikes.com Forums, there're no less than 44 VFR riders in S'pore. This does not include those who aren't in the Forum...

    Hi Guys,

    I'm from Kuala Lumpur and have a 97 VFR750. Love the bike.....

    To a question before, a water buffalo can be 4 to 5 times weight of my VFR. And you really don't want to crash into one...


    cheers

    congrats

    :welcome: i think this is one of the most international threads ive seen with so many differant country flags in the same thread.

    Awesome!:ncb:

    now, while your all here, we have been having some discussion in the insiders forum about adding 'international flavour' to the next VFR world calender.

    ive seen at least one pic on the front page of a VFR with an elephant so maybe one with a water buffalo too???
    ( preferably not crashed into it!:tongue:)

    any way give it some thought, the pics need to be high res and some thought given to composition, lighting etc helps.

    as im from NZ i guess im looking at sheep to represent :llama:, not that exciting really, but i like a challenge!

    happy riding to all:stickhorse:

    Richard,

    Might take you up on that. Need to plan a ride sometime to a "kampung" (village) area or the east coast of malaysia, where i know more of them can be seen from the roadside.
    Failing that, will try the KL zoo, if they allow me to take my bike in.....


    mirkahnus,

    thnx dude, will check it out..

    Dude,
    How bout these pics from a "kampong" setting?

    BikePics - mirkhanus's 2008 Honda VFR 800 Home Page on BikePics.Com

    These were taken during my twice-annual trip to my grandma's place in Bentong, Pahang. Planning to use the trunk East Coast road to Kuantan & snap some nice pics near Air Papan.

    A meet-up perhaps??

    VFR Guy from South East Asia

    Hi, just to add one more SEA country. I live in Thailand and ride a 2003 VFR. Got it just a few weeks ago and did already about 5K kilometers on it. Today I am lazy and don't want to waste hours to figure out how to add pics to the site but I have quite a few nice ones with buffalos, dogs, cows, nice country side, taken on my recent introductory tour through the north east of Thailand (Isaan). 3000 km in one week with a group of friends.
    I have explored most of Thailand on different bikes and I can honestly say the VFR is the best bike I ever rode on long trips. Ok, the steering bearings were gone after the trip but the bike managed rather challenging roads without complaining. Here in Thailand riding is not about breaking the speed record but about being in control in tight situations. Going through tight bends and dodge pot holes, sometimes dogs and reckless pickups using your lane (oncoming). Avoid collisions with farm vehicles etc coming out of nowhere. The VFR was (is) stable like a tank and brakes hard even on bumpy/dirty tarmac. I was very impressed! For PS addicts the VFR may be boring but I found the acceleration is a;ways more than enough to outrun anything that tries to compete - luckily not too many CBRs or R1s around, in one week we did not see another 'big bike'. They exist but usually they are used for day trips around Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Pattaya. So the whole country is yours if you like the adventure. I can absolutely recommend a bike holiday in Thailand. There are areas with spectacular scenery and acceptable roads. The traffic (risk) is no real problem if you 'hold your horses'. And obviously the social side is great fun as Thai people are very welcoming and where ever you are you will enjoy yourselves.
    I will try to post some pictures on the weekend.
    Axel
