Who farted?

Oops... wrong thread. Well, now that I have your undivided attention, I guess I should introduce you to my new-ish ride.

1993 VFR750F with only 6900 miles on the clock. She pulled me in simply for the fact of wanting to rescue her from the neglect of a previous owner that had run ethanol blends through the fuel system and failed to keep the internals clean. Took me nearly a month to get all the fluids, fuel lines and filters replaced and sorted. She's running like a top now. Just filled her first tank yesterday at a respectable 42mpg.

I love that gen vfr. A good friend had the same model with over 100,000km on it and it ran like a top. Plus i am a sucker for white bikes. ;-)
