Drogo's VRX400

From Drogo in London.

Hey Gary,
So here is one hopefully for the 'small Jap street bike' corner of the blog. Grey import Honda VRX 400, a spongy gutless thing as stock but with a little help and some cool bits from the guys at SP-1 in Japan, she's a tight, torquey number for London traffic death matches!
Got the magazine and ust sneaked a half hour read when I'm meant to be designing the sets for a TV commercial... Will get stuck in later, ignoring my wife and kids will have less severe consequences!
Best thing since 'Harlem Heroes' in 2000AD, and that's the highest praise I can give...
Cheers,
Drogo

@Dr-Ogo If its the bike I'm thinking of then You must live around the corner from me ha ha
One thing I completely forgot to do at Kempton was look around the bike parking bit. Too cold.

Cool bike, you must have the only one in the UK. Makes a nice sound as well as I'm sure I was behind you going down the Marylebone Rd a good few months ago one morning.
