    G'Day. It's good to find a local bike forum. I've been on Yank forums since I bought this bike in 04. I've been riding since 78, had various bikes over the years. The current one is my favourite and I've owned it the longest of any. It's a 1998 Honda VT1100C3 Aero.

    Cheers.

    That's what attracted me to this bike in the first place. Unfortunately, Dunlop is the the only mob that make them for the front 17". On the All Aero forum in Yankeeland, there has been much discussion about these tyres. I went blackwall once, but it just wasn't the same. This is my 3rd set of WWW's.

    Cheers.

    I get asked that all the time. But, it's no different if your arms are up high or down low. If you're using your arms to "hang on" instead of just controlling the bike, they're gunna get sore in any position. When I first got this bike with the stock bars, I rode to the coast and thought my arms were gunna fall off. The following day on the ride home it was a lot better. It's just a matter of getting used to it. I rode to west Sydney last friday and rode back the next day. It was fine. Also, my tank will only take me 200 k's, so I have a break at Exeter to fill up.

    Cheers.

    Yeah I get around a bit and ride it to work a lot. Honda VT's are great bikes. I just helped a mate get a 750 A.C.E.
    I didn't even know there was a cafe in that part of Fyshwick. I'm in Quangers, so it's nice and close. If it's on this coming Monday night, I'll be there. What time??

    Cheers.

    Thanks Lebster. WhiteWalls look good on anything. Or, I should say, WhiteWalls make anything look good.
    You've probably heard this before, but you know that dirt is for growing potatoes, right? :biggrin

    Cheers.
