Just signed up here since I picked up a nice, albeit a little dirty, '98 VFR . It's way more into touring than I am so the windscreen, Givi hardbags, Sargent seat and ( forgive my ignorance ) whatever case is on the back behind the passenger seat are all coming off and getting sold. I imagine it's also a Givi. I'll probably wish I had them back in a few years but right now, I just need the money so I can pay sales tax and get a tag. I got a sweet deal on the whole thing, I didn't have the money for it and I got it for every penny I had left because I had just bought a CBR 600 f4i that I TOLD myself to buy because it was "good enough"..........long story short, that little torque-less turd is now for sale. LOL Holy crap I love the sound, the torque, the linear power and the comfort ! It's THE all around bike. I can only afford one right now and I'm happy it's the VFR. I would've never looked at one if a good friend of mine hadn't suggested it. ( I'm an ex-sportbike douche bag ) Aside from all that, glad to be here. Seems like a fantastic community of riders. If any of you guys live in upstate SC, send me a message. And always remember, tires are like wives. If you want to fool around, you'd better warm them up first.
