    Not a bad read in a 2007 Article on buying a used VFR. :cool:

    " Are you in the market for another bike? Do you want the comfort and touring ability, combined with the commuting competence that a focussed race-rep cannot provide, yet still get the adrenaline flowing. There is a class of bike called sports-tourer to do just that with. These include the modern, purposefully designed BMW R1100S, Truimph Sprint ST and the subject of this review, Honda’s timeless VFR800. "

    " The bike is an engineering master-piece with an exotic sense to it, mainly because of its unique V-four engine with its gear-driven camshaft and valves. It is expensive to service, and would be even more costly if something breaks. But nothing breaks on a VFR; it is part of the bike’s appeal, and reliability is something Honda is rather good at "
