How many VF's do the Forum members own ?
« on: July 03, 2011, 07:44:27 pm »
There are now only 329 VF's registered with DVLA, with only 128 on the road. Whilst there are 343 members of this forum,( don't know how many are active tho' ).
Anyway, it'd be interesting to know how many of the dwindling number of VF's are represented here ?
I've got a FF on the road ( with FE bodywork ), a complete SORN'd original FE and another of each SORN'd and dismantled as spares.
I for one am a dedicated owner and will hereby promise to the best of my ability to keep at least one of my VF's on the road  for the rest of my ( riding ) life, hopefully that amounts to another 20+ yrs !!
Can we do our own VF1000.com members census ?

Hi,
I've got a vf1000fe (owned from new in 1984, was taken off-road in 1990 hence not sorn) and a vf1000f2 which has been undergoing a rebuild and is sorn at the moment.

I would say we represent a pretty good percentage of the owners of the UK bikes here, hopefully with more owners to come!

I have a 86'FF,a 85'F2F and a VF500F2F all on sorn.Were all on the road last year but got a new GTR1400 this year so been using that.I have an 85 500F2E as a donor  and an 85'FF as a donor for the 1000's.
I really enjoy the VF's but modern brakes and suspension do show how poor the 80's bikes were,although then they were cutting edge.
