Yep, Lurch. I have pix of it somewhere, but they aren't very good. I asked Kevin about Lurch a couple years ago, and his memories are still vivid. (He also remembers the ankle-breaking Yamaha IT-465, but that's another story. )

A 750 in 1986, the (second gen) VFR was a 700 starting in 1987. Then it was gone (as the premier Honda sportbike). Although you couldn't buy one in 1988, it won the AMA Superbike c'ship in that year as it did the two prior years.

This was my bike, the blue one:

How come WE get slapped by an instructor when our body position looks like that....

I saw this on CL earlier before reading the thread. Thought it was cool. But I've been told I have unique taste in bikes.

for a while my dad had an '85 700 Honda...we did a few mods to it... exhaust, jetting, ignition etc... it was a fun bike to ride at the gap. it felt tall as compared to newer bikes and it was very narrow...

it took a load of digging.. but I found this pic from back in august of '02
