I live on the south coast of the UK and have the advantage of slightly better weather then the rest of my counterparts further up north !

I would like to hear if possible of what peoples thought are of the fury (I know people might tend to be biased, due to being a moderator on the SIUK forum and know how owners try to 'big up' their ride) but curious to good and bad nonetheless.

The main use of my current cruiser is for the missus and myself to go out for the day, so I am aware that the pillion seat will need to be replaced for a more comfortable replacement.

Thanks for the chance to say hello and if things go well I might be a convert!

Cheers

Paul and Jen.
Welcome to the forum!, If you get the chance to ride one, you'll love it!

I moved to the Fury after riding only sportbikes (hondas) for some time. I wish I would have made the switch much earlier. I LOVE this bike!!

Definitely get one. You will never regret it...

And welcome to the forums!

Well it looks like it's becoming more likely after this weekend..

The missus was well pee'd that the intruder decided to act up on the morning we were going out for a ride!!!

Back in the garage it went for me to have to take the car instead!

so I am trying to find a place locally to home that we can have a sit on one before trying my local dealer for a testride.. I spoke to Honda Bournemouth and the don't keep them in stock anymore.

But hey.. it's one step closer !

Got a quick question..

Has anyone here got the roadburner pro, rush or something similar and offer any thoughts? I like the lines of these as the follow the chassis line at the bottom and keep it looking nice and neat.

Okay well the week has gone well..

Monday and Tuesday I tried 4 dealers each not having a fury to sit on, travelling from Dorset to London.

DCM Moto in Preston in the North of the UK however did have a Fury which I managed to plop me butt onto and felt great.. Liked the V&H pipes too as they had a deeper tone to the intruder.

So today, I have been able to drive to Yeovil with the missus and she's managed to sit on one too !!

Loved the bike but definitely wants the rear seat changing as she says its far firmer than the intruder.. So all's good... Just need to sort out finance and bag myself a good deal and it looks like you might have to put up with a new member on the forum in the near future..

The intruder will be back burnered over the winter to get her sorted out with this wiring issue, but if things work out I will sell the intruder in the Spring to pay a chunk of the Fury.

Watch this space I guess

Paul and Jen.

Thanks everyone !

RR . My head office is in Barlborough (J30) so not too far from you. I'm planning on a few trips up on the bike next year, so sounds like a good chance to meet for a beer
