it was a beast back then and still is now! the only negative of the bike i would say is the size of the gas tank not that it ever bothered me at all.

The VFR 400 RR is an awesome bike, one of my favorites as well, too bad the US DOT/EPA don't agree with us

Thats the color of my CBR 900 RR, was so cool looking!

Sunday Rider,

Nice collection, and I'm sitting here scratching my head... I've been going on the personal info as shown under your avatar that says you've got one year of riding experience. All this time, I (and probably a few others) have been going off the assumption that you were a relatively inexperienced rider that bought a 1098 as a first bike.

I have to admit that it does change my thoughts somewhat, as I've been pretty critical about you on some of the posts based on my impression that you were a noob that was getting in over his head. Definitely not what I expected, so credit where credit's due.

You ought to change your experience to reflect the 26 years you've actually been riding. If you bought a streetbike in 86, then you're likely older than I am - and that's unexpected as well. I had you figured as a 20-something.

Nice history and nice bikes! - but the VFR400 and RD are my faves, next to the 1098 naturally.

CCH

My thought as well, either that or you spent a lot of time finding pics and making up sh*t to make a real nice story.

Hello CCH, i learned to ride when i was 12 years old in South America, where a license is rarely asked by local authorities, i started on a very small bike, perfect for my height and weight at that time. All of my riding had been mostly commuting and it wasnt until i moved to Guadalajara, Mexico that i discover the other side of riding.... the twisties!

Riding the twisties was quite a learning experience for me, it changed my ways of looking at motorcycles so much that i changed my riding habits in a matter of weeks from daily commuting to just weekend riding the twisties with my buddies. So the 1 year experience that you see on my avatar is because i only started to count when i became comfortable riding the twisties. At the time that i created my profile i estimated that i have about 365 days of riding the twisties experience so that's what i put down because i have been riding a long time before and never learn anything until i started riding the twisties, i chose not to mention 26 years of riding experience because i do not consider highway riding or daily commuting as a riding experience, instead i only mentioned the years where my experience has made me a better rider, hope this makes sense to you

As far as my age goes, i am probably a lot older than you but being asian i do not show my age

The VFR 400 RR was a superb bike for me at that time, one of the best handling bikes i have ridden ever! Too bad i cannot get one here in the US

Grey market dude. There are a surprising number of VFR400s in the US. My friend Eric had one for a while in Atlanta. The RGV250m that I've got belonged to him for a little while as well. When the old marketing manager for Aprillia and I lived in the same neighborhood, he had an RS250 that he managed to get plates on - running the RS50 headlight, taillight and mirrors to make it "streety". It can be done.

Great link CCH, i am surprised that the VFR 400RR has held its price so well over the years, when i bought mine i paid aprox. $3600 USD brand new in South America.

oh and i like how you describe your RGV250m...... my RD 350 used to smoke a lot too, specially during the winter lol

Started with a 2 year old 600 Hurricane. Put 33,000 miles on it in 6 months. Traded it in on a brand new 1100 Kat that got 88k in 18 mos, which in turn got traded for a ZX-11. Absolute power corrupts absolutely!
