Sorry for the late notice but there are still a few spots available for a test ride of about 20 mins duration on the new Honda Vt 1300.

This promo material is from Sydney City Motorcycles. The rides are in the afternoon between 1:45 and 5:00 and depart from SCM Campbelltown. I will be there.

SCM Honda News:

The all-new Honda Fury:

Many of you have been asking about this new bike - signifying a bold step and a radical new direction from Honda. One look and you can see it captures the true essence of a chopper from stem-to-stern.


- A fuel injected 80-cubic inch (1300 cc) V-twin

- 38° steering head

- The longest wheel-base motorcycle Honda has ever produced

You can view and test ride the all-new Fury Saturday, December 5th at Sydney City Motorcycles, Campbelltown! The Honda Fury truck will be on board from 2 – 5 pm. Mark this date on your calendar. See you there …

For bookings, contact Mark Thompson at their Campbelltown store on 4626 3000.

What a great ride that was. Thanks for joining me Harry. Stew, it's around $22,000 otr I believe.

I think this bike will be great competition for the HD. Looks good, feels great, not a lot of noise which can be remedied. Certainly makes a statement. Only has a small tank though @ about 12 litres. Only comes in the black and blue in Aust. I don't feel the black has any WOW factor vs the blue. What do you think Harry? Would have liked a tacho and I think a small screen would be nice. Difficult to read gauges.

Naturally, loads of power, given I'm only used to the VN. I think Rudi would like this one. If I had a choice of a second bike in the garage, it would be this. Trevor from NSWR was following me on his bike. I had him slow down so I could create a gap between the forward riders and myself and then opened her up. Felt great. Not a lot of clearance between the road and pegs though. Trevor said I was almost scraping around one corner.

I will paste some pics in the next post, but all pics can be seen @

Hi Ed. For 60 easy payments it could be sitting in your garage. Sounds like it is a good thing

It's called a wish list.

True story, last night I dreamt I won a million dollars with 3 other ppl. See, I'm not greedy, $250,000 is enough to wittle down that wish list. Must buy a lottery ticket. Hey, I am in a syndicate at work. Perhaps we won.
