    Hi!
    The Newbies have just picked up there first motorhome (2004 Autocruise Starblazer) on 23rd of March 2013. ( V excited) Drove it back in the snow from fullers in Nottingham and it has been sitting on our drive while we get all the bits and pieces together.
    We spent good friday getting most of the necessities, i.e. cork screw and bottle opener :Wink:
    Discovered that the Eberspacher heating was not working on Saturday so our first trip to the coast was postponed. Spoke to fullers on the phone and they said bring it back, as it is covered by there warranty. I am taking her back this Saturday so they can diagnose the fault and they are giving me a loan car in the mean time. Good service so far. I noticed on Sunday that the leisure battery is not holding its charge as well :-( I will get the multimeter on the case before Saturday to see where the fault lies.
    Can't wait to get away in her.... Just hope that camping in her, will be as enjoyable as the researching and the buying :)

    Cheers for now

    Mark & Gill

    Hello. I'm sure you'll enjoy being out in your MH far more than researching them :thumb:

    Welcome, Mark and Gill.

    Does the Vfour800 refer to a VFR by any chance?

    VFR?

    Hi Silver, yes it was my first big bike back in 99. I adopted it for most of the forums. I have had three VFR's in total but the last one an 03 with the VTECH engine I didn't like. Honda should have adopted the ethos: If it ain't broke...... I have CB1000R now, which is a little to refined but great to ride :BigGrin:
    Do you ride?

    Certainly do. :BigGrin:

    Have an 05 VFR. Some plus points over the previous 800 but heavier on fuel and same performance overall despite the vtech surge on opening the extra valves. Towing the bike up to Scotland next week. Used to have a CB1000R as well. :thumb:

    I agree hole heatedly, I liked the improved handling and looks of the VTECH but could not get on with the eight valves coming in and out. I did my first track day on it at Mallory park and it was a real pain. I sold it not long afterwards and bought an Aprilia Tuono. Absolutely loved it, with bags of character. Unfortunately I crashed it at Oulton park in 2008. It cost a fortune in parts to get it back on the road. :cry:
    Have a wicked time in Scotland.
    I am off to the Isle of Man TT again this year.
    I am also looking at buying a scooter for the MH, as the CB is to heavy to go in the garage. Thinking about a Honda Psx 125. I would like something bigger but the weight goes up very quickly. :thumb:
