    This is our project/rescue bike. 2009 VFR800 54,000k's

    used and abused and lowsided and reassembled by fu*ckwits.

    no screws/bolts
    one screw/bolt
    bent cluster
    2012 tyres (WTF)
    never ever should have been on the road.
    the list goes on and on and on.

    The wife and I spent the last 3 months putting things right, parts after parts, all new ( used fairings) from every year between 04 and 07 and every colour.

    There are several things left to do, paint the wheels white, wife bought some 4mm black tape to put between the yellow and white areas.

    Just took it for a test ride as I didnt want to have anything happen on our trip so did a little shake down ride.

    The hivis yellow doesnt show up well in the photos :(

    Very nice Micro, it looks great. Your wife is a SuperStar. Mine would tell me to go "F" myself. Have fun on that sweet VFR.

    We are still up in the air about the colour of the wheels, it will either be the same white or the same HI-VIS green without the textures

    You've picked another nice week for a ride! The weather is looking great. I did a ride around the southern Coromandel loop two weekends ago and that was fab. The northern loop is better so long as you are mid-week and avoid all the caravans and boats. Have fun.
