Hi from the sunny south coast of the UK

Good Evening folks,

I had to do some research as I stumbled across the fury this afternoon and instantly fell in love with it!

I currently ride a VS1400 which I greatly enjoy but the look of the fury has definitely caught my eye.

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.

Hi Paul,
If you need to see a fury in the flesh, I live near Eastbourne, We could maybe meet up at Brighton for a couple of hours one w/end.
Just understand that once you have even sat on one you will not be able to resist the Dammed thing.
Welcome to the forum Mates.

MELIORA SPERO

Hi and welcome to the madhouse.

I had a 1996 vs1400 from the fall of 2007 until I wrecked it in an accident this july.
I got myself a new 2012 black fury in august and I can honestly say the fury is a better ride,but I belive you shuld change the back seat. My fiancee rides a vs 800 herself so I ditched the back seat.You will find pics of both the vs 1400 and the fury in my profile albums.

Best regards Frank.

Greetings Hammy, from the far north :-)

I actually travelled all the way to Farnham Honda to pick up my brand new Fury - quite a return journey back!

I've had every kind of bike, but it's the Fury that really stands out - there's something about it that amazes ordinary folk as well as bikers. I can honestly say that every time I've been out on the bike it's attracted a lot of admiration and interest.

I've had a few cruiser bikes, including a BMW R1200C, but the Fury's unstressed engine and hefty torque make it a great way to take it easy on the highway.

It's not so good when the weather's bad, but you'll get plenty of sunshine where you are.

Let us know how you get on - there are some decent offers on Furies now - I waited 18 months for prices to drop to more sensible levels.

If you look in my albums, I have a VS700 raked that I left to go to the Fury and I thought about keeping the Intruder around for sentimental reasons but with the Fury, that other POS can go! LOL

86 Intruder; 79 XS650; 11 Fury #776 Freedom is life behind bars.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys !

I am seriously considering one of these and once the xmas period is out of the way and finances settle down again I will be heading over to my honda dealer for a test ride and see what deal I can do..

Thanks again and I might be badgering you with the odd question here and there on the way.

Talk soon !

Paul and Jen.
