  1. This is one I have never held. I worked in internal audit back in the 90's. I let my CISA go in 2003. Just holding an inactive CPA license. Wish you the best on the final!
  2. New leftover base 2014 price?

    These are pretty unbelievable discounts. I'm 300 miles north of Kevin, and not in the market, but it would still be a long way to pick up a bike. It does remind me of when they had all the leftover 2007 6th gens. Either they are dropping the VFR from the US market (again) or they have significant model change coming.
  3. This one or that one ?

    Is this something he is working on for a business? I think many of us could become customers!
  4. Buell XBR lowering pegs

    I'm surprised these are still available. I'm using the Buell Ulysses pegs on my 6th gen. They fit without mods, and I was able to adjust the rear brake without any mods, either.
  5. How old are VFR owners?

    Not for me either. I came to motorcycles about 10 years ago and did my learning on a Ninja 250. Not hard edged at all. Sent from my HTC6525LVW using Tapatalk
  6. How old are VFR owners?

    Sorry I didn't see this sooner. Genmar risers, Buell Ulysses pegs. My inseam is 30 inches. The risers are 1 inch. The Buell pegs fit without modification, but could be hard to find now. They drop the pegs about 1 inch. But I keep my feet so that my contact point in corners is on the balls. My bike also had the "triangle" mod so that I can flatfoot it at stops. I usually don't scrape in corners. The fork tubes are relocated an inch up the triples to keep the turn in quick but stable. I know there are those who would object to these mods, but I've ridden it this way for 7 years and 40,000 miles. Sent from my HTC6525LVW using Tapatalk
  7. Nice photos of a nice bike. Emond Ling is listed as the owner.
  8. Sounds like I should look at injector cleaning as a winter project! Sent from my HTC6525LVW using Tapatalk
  9. Removing front wheel without stand?

    Does the 8th Gen require removal of one caliper to pull the front wheel? I know the 6th gen does.
  10. Cage vs Sliders

    Cages on a sport touring bike are not a new idea. http://www.mcenterprisesusa.com/products/search/dsp_searchform.cfm I didn't know that they were even available for a VFR. I want to see how this turns out.
  11. Tires!

    Old thread from 2016.
  12. Clicking Chain

    Hi, I just had the dealer install a new chain and sprockets on my 6th gen. The sprockets are Honda, and the chain is DID VX 530 Pro-Street. I've ridden the bike for the past 40,000 miles and now I have a constant clicking. I know I need to take it back, but any suggestions that I can use to direct them?
  13. Okay. I've put about 100 miles on and I can tell you that the feedback and feel from these tires are great! The ride is comfortable, and they are oblivious to a little moisture. Now let's see what they look like after 5,000 miles. I had the Angel GTs before and was pretty unhappy by that point. Anyone else want to chime in? Brian
  14. Increasing Comfort- seat swap/handle bar risers

    I do core workouts at my local Y. I have 1" risers, and a lower custom seat. All of the above is good advice. The big challenge is not locking your elbows when riding. Try to keep your forearms parallel to the ground. I'm pushing 60 and in my 8th riding season with the VFR. I prefer to do 300-350 mile days, but have done a 500+ mile day. Hope this helps.
  15. Cyclops LED H4s

    I was intrigued by this upgrade for two reasons. First, it was in an MSTA STAReview article, and second, the experimental bike was a VFR. Anyone running this on a 6th gen? http://www.cyclopsadventuresports.com/3800-Lumen-H4-LED-Headlight-bulb-_p_83.html
