Hi Nigel and welcome to the madhouse that is EuroKClub  8)

As for doing it sooner, the shine might have worn off by now so enjoy that 'new to me' feeling while it lasts and don't forget to wipe the smile off your face once in a while or folks will think you are having way too much fun.

Ooo, interesting!
They're always being touted as for exactly the same market, so what are the pros and cons, please?

And of course, welcome Nigel.

Welcome Nige!

I test rode both the VFR and the K before I got my first one. My only real memory of the Honda ride was the heated grip switch literally falling to pieces as i rode, and someone making me test the brakes. Which stopped me.
