Hey Julija & Robert !

It is nice to see your Marocan ride report on ADV Rider.I must say that you guys are really great with your moto travels and each time you came to Ljubljana I was glad to see you.We always had a great time either in Ljubljana-Ex Yugoslavian countries or last year in Piran.
I remember, when 2 years ago I was telling you about Morroco,how nice is there and that you should visit the country,Robert was a little bit afraid to go there,but I knew that you guys are brave enough and that sooner or later you will go there,so that happened last year.
As I heard from you,you spend a wonderfull time there and I can see that you made so many beautifull pictures, and the video is also very very nice.

So once again thank you for your heart warmth and kindness,and please stop bringing us all the gifts each time you're coming,I'm just happy to see both of you.

I hope that I will convince some of my friends to join me and visit you this year in Moscow.

Hugs and Kisses to you From Ljubljana,

Sebastjan-Cheburaher

Seba1, Živijo Cheburashka, I even was touched! It`s always a great pleasure for us to come to you and your friends. It is your story about Morocco pushed us, and Robert, you know, he always afraid, but he need time to decide on something. But now he could easily go to Albania)))) Seba, if you do not want that we bring you gifts - come faster in Moscow and take them youself ))) so let's actively convince your friends. Beluga bottle is waiting for you in the freezer.
Mi tebja lubim i obnimaem, priezjay bistree!

Thank you for the Ride Report, very good and your english is good as well.

I very much like the VFR1200 and am considering buying one to take some long rides with my wife.

Is the pillon seat comfortable for a long day of riding? How many miles did you travel per day?

vintagespeed, Original seat is hard and very slippery - all the time passenger slips on the driver. It is not possible to go together even 5 km. We have altered the seat (in a special workshop). The new seat has become more comfortable, soft, understated and narrowed for the driver (my wife Panda has small growth and her feet did not reach the ground, when she was on driver place), and it is not such slippery as the original seat, and now the passenger does not slip on the driver.
With the new seat, we can absolutely comfortably drive 1500 km per day (932 miles).

Actually we altered the seat 2 times, but after the first time the passenger is still slipped on the driver, so we have altered the second time - more radically.


In the first photo - the seat after the first tuning.

Second and third photo - the seat after the second tuning.













But now we like the seat of this type (form and material). I think for our next new VfR we will do the seat, like this
(without back on the second photo):













There is also the original seat of Honda from Alcantara matirial. But we did not hear comments about it.

Yeah, the sand we'll remember for a long time .....
We never had any problems with our VFR 1200. In Russian forum VFR-owners wrote only about one leak out shock absorber, and about one fell to pieces bearing in the driveshaft. Agree, it's nothing against the background of the many breakages of other models.
