  1. I'm in Rochester, NY. Went to Florida with a trailer to pick mine up. Didn't quite hit 90mph, but the cruise was set at 80mph through much of West Virginia on the way home. 1/2 hour after picking it up...explains the shit eating grin.
  2. I've got an Aluma 548. Got lucky and found a killer deal on a used one. 250lbs empty, low deck height, torsion axles and a ride on gate. I've towed it loaded with my 6th Gen behind a base model, 5 speed Civic.
  3. Oh...you can certainly feel it if you are hard on the throttle. I actually like it. It is part of the character of the bike. Normal riding it is no big deal. If I'm riding the twisties, I try to stay above the transition so it doesn't surprise me coming out of a corner.
  4. There were small improvements made over the years. The 2009 is attractive as Honda made updates to address issues in the earlier models. (Wiring and vtec transition smoothed out.) Still, they are very similar bikes. Both are low mileage. There is a big difference in price between the two. (2009 seems overpriced to me. 2003 has a reasonable asking price.) Personally, for that big a difference in price, I would consider the 2003 if it appears to have been well maintained. I have a 2004. I've had some minor electrical issues over the years, but have never felt that the vtec crossover was an issue.
  5. Looks pretty clean. Seems like a decent asking price considering it has ABS. No OEM hard cases. OEM hard cases are getting harder to find. If you really want them, you may want to wait and find a bike that already has them.
  6. While there is nothing wrong with how the OP wired it, I would have used a relay with a wire from the tail light connected to the #86 terminal. That way power would be switched off with the ignition so you don't have to worry about drawing down the battery.
  7. Loved my ST1100. Deceptively fast as it was so smooth and comfortable.
  8. I have an '04, 32K miles, with the harness recall and the VFRness. Still having electrical gremlins. No stator or RR component problems, but have dealt with melted/brown connectors and blown fuses. I have redone the stator connections, the main fuse holder, and the starter relay connector. I like the bike a lot, and have owned it for almost 10 years, but I'm getting a little tired of the electrical issues.
  9. Yeah, I was lusting for the Pontiac version when they came stateside. Then GM killed off Pontiac and we never saw it here. There was an imported one running around locally a couple of years ago.
  10. The link below should be helpful.
  11. It has been a long time since I installed mine, but looking at post 4, it appears that bracket C is just a means for refitting two bolts to plug unused holes. I think you could substitute washers and nuts to accomplish the same thing.
  12. Winter does suck! Maybe Christmas morning, while my wife is at church, I'll sneak out to the shop with a hot chocolate and visit my sleeping beauties. To the OP: I watch MotoGP with my video pass during the season, but intentionally skip the support races so I'll have something to entertain me during the off season.
  13. Was something done to improve mileage on the '13-'14 models? Or is it the low number reporting are skewing the results? If you look at VTECs from '02-'12 it appears to be high 30's to low 40's which is in line with my experience on my '04. http://www.fuelly.com/motorcycle/honda/vfr800_interceptor
