It's a sad day

Today is the day I must return my dad's 07 VFR 800. I had it to install the Honda hard bags and kept it safe while Pops went on vacation. In the mean time I have fallen in love with it. My normal ride is a CBR 1000RR which is a great bike but for everyday use the VFR *SMOKES* it. I never thought I would say this and will deny it in person but having a lockable, easily removable bag is the shiz nit fo sho!

Anyway - I'm leaving the 1000 parked for a while and will return to service the ole 900 - it's carburated, which runs cooler and in commute mode I can net 50mpg. It's just the riding position on the old stuff is less than ideal.

Anyway - I miss the VFR and it isn't even gone yet!

Phew, thought this was gonna be another rider down thread.
I've been wanting a VFR for a while now. If I ever buy another bike for street only, that will probably be the one.

She is definitely a great all-rounder for commuting, riding country roads and longer distances, even the track. I have yet to get the hard bags, I wanna get Ohlin's first, bags are next.

Glad you liked it. I got mine for a good deal last year, with Staintune exhaust, 6200 miles, 02 model.

It is a great long distance bike. I have ridden mine to Mena, Arkansas and Big Bend National Park twice and have done a few trips to New Orleans. I am taking a trip to Colorado for Labor Day. The best thing is that it is still fun in the twisties and on the track.

I will never get another bike without lockable saddlebags. When I get to work, I take my laptop out of the bags and put my riding gear in. Whenever it rains, I just pull over and take out my rain gear.

It's a shame so many people get hooked into the 'look' of the currernt race replica bikes - they are missing the boat!

I think I could I have some fun on the viffer at a track day but I'm glad I have the 1000RR for that - ultimately that is where the CBR belongs, on the track.

I do not miss the CBR on the street though - the VFR does all I ask of it and with plenty of reserve plus the comfort is great.

I'm with you on the lockable bags, they are wonderful and make life soooo much easier for day to day use. After using them for the first time I found myself asking "And how did you get along without these again?"
