    I have been riding motorcycles for about 3 years now and have been drooling over VFRs as my dream motorcycle for about 2. Perfect blend of sport and touring. Well I have been looking for a white one in my area for 2 years (Seattle). A friend finally located one at a local dealership and I had to go down there first thing next morning and get it. I am so psyched to finally be a VFR owner. Got a white 2006, with the hard bags, immaculately clean, and only 4500 miles. Weaseled the dealer down to 6200 (which I think is a steal). Dream come true. (The red bike next to mine is a co-worker who just got a great deal on a 2007 VFR).

    Welcome, Byrds! I think you'll love having the hard cases if you do any touring.

    I haven't heard about the northwest rally but I am definitely interested. Where can I find info? And yeah the hard cases are amazing, they make commuting to work just that much simpler, can't wait to tour with them. Thanks for the warm welcomes.

    Wow! I thought it was just me. I did the exact same thing. Been in Honda forums for a while reading about the VFR and wanting to upgrade to my dream bike too. (from my CBR600) I made the purchase of an '08 VFR last weekend. Only been 4 days, but I love it!

    Congrats Tater, welcome to a new and exciting world. I just got my first 600 mile service done, expensive but I hear that it needs to be done to keep the warranty. I look forward to many more miles, and especially getting it broken in. I love that v-tech motor. Mine is an '07 and I could not pass it up as well as I've wanted one ever since they first came out in the mid 80's. Enjoy!
