Introducing my ride.

Hoyhoy.

She's the front one.
I'm the second owner & got her 18months ago with just 22000 kms.

But this one should suit you.

Mate, better put up plenty of pics. They are a nice group of bikes.

I'd like to see more of that green one with the driving light upgrade. Looks very similar to mine.


Cheers, Jason.

Jason the green one was my sister inlaws which she just sold, so no more pics of that one..
As for more pics of mine, ya have to wait as I'll be doing some more chroming in the near future, then may be some close up stuff.

Hoyhoy.

I finally got to do a bit of work on the Girl.
New rear higher Progressive shocks & Gold Emulator Valves in the front.
Nearly all nuts & bolts changed to stainless & chromed ones.
Steering head bearings plus new clutch.
Then some chroming.

Hoyhoy.

With the new suspension, she rides as good as she looks, much softer & smoother plus MUCH better handling.
Me is in love again.

Very Nice! It's as nice and clean as my 1994 XV1100.

I bought my 1100 last June with 1,144 miles on it. It's currently got 2,664 miles on it. I put Cobra pipes, highway bars, foot rests, chrome headlight shade, blue accent lights behind the lip under the fuel tank and swapped seats with my 700 Virago. Put the 700's Mustang seat on the 1100 and the 1100's factory seat on the 700.

Happy trails to you.

Eddy, your thread has been repaired.

Folks, eddy originally used photobucket to host his pictures and the thread was rendered useless unless you could see his pictures. Eddy made it known that he wanted his picture back up and he and I worked together to bring back the thread as it was originally intended. Eddy did as I asked, and uploaded his pics to his VTF album it wasn't difficult from that point.

Click this link http://viragotechforum.com/viewtopic.ph ... 41d5b01c50 to see what it looked like before we fixed it.

Please use your VTF album and host your images from there.

Hoyhoy.

A big thanks to JAKE for taking the time to correct things after Photobucket changed their policy after years of free service to charging $400.00 per year just to third party host a few pics.
Plus on top of that, they go & delete a lot of pics put up in the past years, I'm totally disgusted with their shenanigans & find their actions as BRIBERY & hope that they come undone with their smart-ar*e decision.
So as Jake mentions please use the VTF album for your own sake, it's easy once when ya have ago.

Hey Jake,
I tried clicking on the link that you posted above and it didn't work. Once I realized what was going on and I edited out the link part in front of the actual link I thought that it might work but no! it still didn't work. Anyway I just thought I would let you know about your link not working.

BTW Very nice looking ride Eddy. And I thought I did well with mine :bg: when I picked her up in 2010.
But I'm currently having trouble with a leaking oil seal in the left hand front fork. I haven't been able to figure out what the problem is so far. I have fitted new seals and yet it still leaks. Actually it doesn't leak it pours the oil out :ops:
Anyway :VTF: :coolpic:
Cheers
Wayne

I have been trying to get our members to post their photos to their VTF Albums for years but they just didn't take any notice of me. :thanks:
