Well I was wondering who else has the same bug for power and speed as me..

Been in the mini scene now for 20+ years and now I have given in and got myself a bike.
Got a Honda vfr800 in the 1998 vintage...

Anyone on here run a bike as well?
(any vfr800 spares - luggage racks)

Ahh you've got yourself a Pre-VTEC VFR! Most say it was the best VFR produced... Givi racks for these do pop up on eBay from time to time, you can also get aftermarket seats (Corbin/sargeant) too. Mine feels a little slow under 2k but after that it picks up and flies - I've also changed the rear can and shock too.

Mainly the fleet at the moment contains 2 Fireblades (RR2 and RR5), 3 Hornets (2x600 and 1x900), 1 VFR800 Pre-VTEC and three ZX9Rs (3xE1's) amongst others.

Yep, built this a few years ago. Not put anywhere near enough miles on it.

I never put it away! Storm Brendan saw me being blown everywhere so I've used the car for the past few days, other than that every day.

Once the salt comes on the road she will go back for hibernation.

I used to have a Z400J years back, silver with orange stripes. Have a 92 EL250 in candy red sitting in the garage but after buying it I never used it (1800 miles from new)
