No problem. It's just the uploading of 305Mb is slow and I wanted to get the lower res' ones up ASAP (after a little sleep of course).

Excellent. Photobucket was messing me around a bit so I have had to re-upload them. They should be a little bigger than before but not original size as I am too tight to pay for a Pro account.

The dual clutch (automatic) transmission, in the VFR, works great. Especially in manual shift mode! Smooth as can be! I would be a little skeptical as to whether I would want to try and manage that beast on unpaved road without the control of manual clutch. The lack of engine braking at lower speeds is kind of unsettling as you instinctually grab at the clutch lever to find nothing there, then that brief moment of freewheeling, out of control sensation kicks in! HAHAHA

Look, yet another Honda with a single sided swingarm where you have to remove the #$%*ing exhaust to get the rear wheel off.

What do you mean? The Goldwing, VFR, and Hawk GT don't need the pipe removed.

Had to remove the exhaust on my R1200RT to get the wheel off as well. It was a 2 bolt, literally 2 minute process. Where's the problem?

unbolt the hanger, loosen the clamp and swing the muffler out of the way. BFD.

If you look at a view of the bike from behind, you see about an inch of space between the tyre and the exhaust. It is most probably enough to remove the wheel without taking off the exhaust.

Doubtful, the rim and tire has to clear the hub.

Not a hint about off road in the video. It's just as much adventure bike as HD Road glide
