Well, Im taking a risk here, posting about Honda's and 4 Strokes on a 2 stroke yamaha forum...

I brought home 4 Honda VF1000R's on Friday. One is near mint, the other 3 should make one good one. Came with a trailer and truck full of parts (including a set of NOS Carbs, NOS Seat, 4 sets of bodywork etc). One of the parts bikes has brand new tires , new chain and sprockets too.

Plan is to build the euro version from the spares bikes.

So I'm at work today and bump into the service guy from one of our suppliers. We always have a chat about bikes, first time I met him he told me he'd just ridden a BMW GS650 from Ontario to Tierra del Fuego and back. Today he told me he'd sold his VFR1000 and started naming all the cool bikes the guy who bought it had. I said, 'Oh, you sold it to Dave up near North Bay', and he said ' how the hell do you know that?' :cool:
He referred to the bike as 'The Furnace'.

LOL what a small world. He told me about the ride to Tierra del Fuego.

He mentioned he repaired "robots" for factories and industrial plants etc. Seemed like a decent chap.
