New'ish Bike!!
« on: July 16, 2010, 11:05:54 AM »
Well,  after joining you guys on the forum and meeting some of you at various rallies, I have changed my bike yet again.  After enjoying the V-Twin sound and low down grunt of the '99 VTR 1000 firestorm, but not enjoying the no warning of the front cam chain tensioner failing at national speed limit  ;) the horrible clackety, clackety sound it made and costing me the best part of £700 to put right, I have got rid of her.  Sad to see her go, as lots of fun was had on her.

Now I have no worries about cam chain tensioners because I have replaced the Storm with a 1991 Honda VFR750fm, gear driven camms  ;D and she goes like a dream, italian red, comfy and good mpg too.
