Newbie here!

Post by susibee » Tue Sep 12, 2017 9:23 pm

Hi everyone, gather round the bar, what you having?
Just about to get my very own vraptor after lusting after one for ages, since they first came out if I'm honest. No pics yet, it doesn't arrive until Thursday but I'm raring to get out on it and hope that Aileen will have blown herself out by then.
The bike's only had 2 previous owners and came with a wodge of paperwork including the original owner manual....... a bit of light bedtime reading then :D
Roll on Thursday :thumbsup:

Hi susibee your description just rang a little bell...!
I sort of know the bike having been the 2nd owner from 2013 until just now :happyhappy:
It's a great bike, no problems and runs very nicely indeed anything you want to know just ask :thumbsup:
Would still be riding it now if the little demons would stop nagging me to spend money hehe :haha:

Cheers for that Hifi :thumbsup:

What have the demons made you buy :evil:

The bike will be going to a good home and I'm really looking forward to getting out on it, it's been a long wait!
I noticed in the paperwork that it had been supplied from Carnforth. It was 17/18 years ago when the seed was sown when I took a raptor out for a test ride :ride:

You local to Craigs Honda?

Hi Susibee, how was your first ride?
Mine (naked 1000) started leaking on the repaired radiator for the second time...
Tommorow it's going of to a repairman for a proper TIG weld. Meanwhile I still enjoy that first decent ride from yesterday.
