    For those of you who like a VFR800 sound track, this is a clip from one of the track day sessions yesterday at Phillip Island. Speedo and tacho in the shot.



    Some highlights; geese on the track at 1:40 and a dice with a CBR1000 starting at 14.00, he runs wide at 14:44. He could only get me on the straight.


    VFR is a 99 model, performance mods:

    · Power commander

    · Air box mods

    · BMC air filter

    · Wilbers suspension front and read

    · Brembo disk and pads

    · Galfer braided lines

    · Metzler M7 tires

    · Staintune exhaust (no restrictor)


    I had an aversion to scratching it, so not pushing as hard as you could. I was lapping around the 2:10 mark, best 2:07. To give a comparison I was sharing the garage with a 2016 BMW 1000RR, he had just bought it and got down to 2:03 at the end of the day and 275km/h down the straight vs my 210km/h (speedo has a HealTech SpeedoHealer on it, so it is accurate). More experienced riders on the same BWM’s on slicks were around 1:53. So not bad for a 21 year old bike on road tires.

    Little braking demo. Hitting the brakes at 150km/h at the 150m marker.

    Brembo disks and pads, Galfer lines. Didn't end well for the BMW rider.
