    Cheers, I’ve had a look at the M4 full system and it states on the advert that it doesn’t need any tuning done but I might just get it on the dyno so I can see what it’s producing. :)

    My favourite is still the BMW S1000Rs, that bike was brilliant and so much fun, I do regret selling it so early, if I fancy another one though I’ll go and get one. :p :)

    Nice!

    Remove mirrors, install tail tidy and new exhaust and you'll be sorted!

    With the wife on the back the Reevu works OK for me. Although for me the payoff (safety, no blindspots and ability to get through tiny gaps) would be well worth it even if I was forced to avoid pillions.

    That Reevu is bloody clever, wonder why they never submitted to Sharp for safety rating?

    No idea, it is ECE 22.05 rated though (and ACU Gold approved).

    They seem to be a very quiet company, I've always wondered why they don't make more effort in marketing what I reckon is one of the best ideas in riding gear.

    Tail tidy ordered, mirrors are actually ok, don’t look the best but do the job ok.

    Exhaust will have to wait as it looks like I’m either going to import one or try and bag a second hand system.

    You don't submit for a sharp rating, they buy the helmets off the shelf unlike alot of certifications which imho is great. But it does mean some models may not be on their radar or just haven't got round to it...

    No agreed that is a good way of doing it.

    The VFR 800 truly is the new SV 650 on this forum.

    Enjoy!

    My old girl. 21 years old this year, I've had her since June last year. So far I've disassembled and rebuilt the carb, de-rusted the tank and replaced all the lines and also changed the mirrors. Last weekend I took apart the throttle assembly and lubed that up, also sorting the slack on the cables (they were too tight, my bad!). This is my first bike and I have to say I love it!

    She's a 1997 Yamaha XV750 Virago, exported from the UK to Spain in 2003 I think and ridden there until ~2015 when she was garaged. My old man found her, took her in and I shipped her back.
