    Thanks Al,

    I was just reading that yesterday. Good article about the 2nd gen bike. Now I remember why I bought it in the first place. Mine roared to life a few days ago after sitting for 15 years. The first ride was like I had ridden it yesterday. It needs to have carbs synchronized as it stumbles a bit just at 1/4 throttle. Perfect idle though. After the hesitation it explodes and runs fantastic like it used too. We should be glad Motorcyclist published that article.

    Great feeling isn't it?! Got my 83 up and running last summer, going to take her later.

    Yep, I remember that article, so cool. and to think that was 30 years ago. I re call the same was done when the 900rr first came out in 93, same 24 hour blitz, used like 4 riders non stop. Honda and Castrol Teamed up and lite it on fire, then tore the engine down and it looked for the most part still new.

    A great feeling indeed. There are many fantastic roads around Flaming Gorge Res. in Utah that the VFR needs to explore soon.

    When the Interceptor came out, it instantly made my pride and joy, 81 900F a dinosaur relic antique. I hated them. I was a young married man with 2 little kids, and could no way afford anything like them.
