Nice bike! With COVID-19 lockdowns not doing anything with my LC at the moment other than trying to fix things that are not broken.

Welcome @RRRooster - I’m just envious of your super-tidy garage. No kids stuff, gardening gear, just-in-case-we-need-it stuff etc!

When you get a chance, click on your profile picture and edit your profile to add your bike model and your location. Both are useful context for future posts.

Is that a VFR in the back ground? I had a 1998 VFR. It was a fantastic bike; loved the sound of those gear driven cams. The riding position was became a bit too forward leaning for my deteriorating back, even with risers and Helibars. I sold the VFR to get my 2007 R1200R.

Funny story; the service manager at my local BMW dealer now owns my old VFR. He is setting it up as his track day bike.

Ride safe and stay healthy.

'97 VFR750, last year with carbs. In '96 I owned a '96VFR750, In '97 I owned a '97 VFR750. In 2000 I owned a VFR800, had some overheating problems with that one. Love the VFR750. This one was a friend's who has passed away. He and I drove to San Francisco from San Diego in 2001 when he bought it on ebay. The 750 sounds awesome with Two Brother's can on it!

Also have 2016 R1200RS. Haven't had it very long. As for me... like the R much more than the RS.

Greetings and welcome to the forum. The R has stayed in the garage apart from a few rides to the local hospital where I'm volunteering 3 days a week, fitting PPE to the front line NHS staff.
