Hank purchased this lovely red Honda VFR800 in July 1999 and over the next 14 months he had loads of fun, covering over 10,000 miles, the only problem he had with the bike over this time was when the rear shock failed after 10 months but it was promptly replaced under warranty.

The Hank’s VFR800 was used in all weathers and that legendary Honda build quality showed how good it was at standing up up to the best that a British winter could throw at it.

Hank replaced all the brake pads after 8,500 miles with EBC Double HH pads.
Tyre life was only around 1,500 but Hank rides very hard, so tyre life in the Mr Hank household is measured in weeks or days!, Most normal riders should expect about 3-6,000 miles from a rear tyre.
