    Hi I was a member here a few years ago when I had a 1st generation VFR800X. I have just ordered a 2018 VFR800X Crossrunner so thought I would rejoin Just a bit about me I am 71 and have ridden since I was 16, I have never held a car licence. This will be my 83 bike. My wife rides a 2017 and has also never held a car licence.
    Since being T-Boned by car in 2013 resulting in most of the bones in my right foot being broken including the heel in 2 places and my toes being pinned I am know limited to rides of no more than approx 200 miles a day

    Know it well, I used to go fishing on the farms around there, back when I had L plates on my Ariel Arrow, Headcorn I think, the hop pickers used to be a riot when the East end moved down for 2 weeks ...blissful days

    I'm near Badminton this weekend is the Horse Trials so lots of Porche, Aston Martin, etc all being driven at excess speed until they come to a corner, feking yuppies ...
