I was editting the BOTM winner overview, and nearly went on automatic, until I found out it was my VFR750 was elected.

Many thanks Micheal, and yes, the text within the photo gallery entry is ment. Both bikes are there to stay.

Guys, many thanks for having me along, and also thanks for the kind words. About a week or so I turned fifty so my second youth has started.
Kids growing up not being kids anymore, but in their words became adults. Why if they are as they say adults, still carry on consuming all of their parents time ?

Anyway, all is ok on this side of the pond. You guys already have started a new project? (better decide quick, because I will start building again this winter  :pot:)   
Those that walk along with the great herd, regularly walks through the crap left behind by others..

I believe we have our first 3-peat winner!

Your story is like several others that I've heard. ...had one, sold it, owned several others, came back to the VFR.

If they only came in an XL...

As expected, you've got a great looking example there Raymond. You've probably done more to keep the V4s in your area on the road than anyone else. I know you've helped me out more than once.

Congratulations on the win! You and your bike certainly deserve it!
