do it all motorcycle

by John Weir
(South Shields)

Bought 2000 model used with 9000 miles on the clock, in good condition and sporting a blue flame exhaust and higher screen

Changed tyres from Bridgestones to Road Pilot 3 s, with much better handling

Soundtrack from exhaust is exhilarating, especially above 6500 revs

Toured Europe on it over a two week period My only gripe is your wrists and back ache at lower speeds, hoping to solve this with a pair of risers

Overall this is the best bike I've ridden, highly recommended!

A very good buy
by: BrianL

That sounds like a very good buy. I had a 2000 model (FiY) that I bought new and which I honestly believe I may still be riding if it hadn't been written off when someone drove a car into the back of me when I was stationary.

In the interim I've had an FJR1300 and a BMWK1200GT, but I've recently gone back to Honda in the form of an 8th-gen VFR800F. I love it, but I have to admit that any improvements over the 2000 bike are quite marginal. That FiY was a really well-sorted bike and there wasn't really a lot of scope for improvement.

I think you've done very well to find a good example with so few miles on it. It should last you for years!
