  1. A second bike?

    2 bikes is always a good thing, find room. They would balance out nicely with each other. I never had a naked bike until I bought a 919 several years ago and it was one of my most favorite bikes I have ever owned. Currently a 14 VFR and a TMax scooter are in the garage. The TMax is under rated but it puts a smile on my face when I ride it. Get the Duc.
  2. Gear indicator error

    Yeah I thought about that but I was like no I been riding 12 years and haven't had issues before. It's my third Honda and I was thinking this ain't normal but if you'll say so.... Thanks for the info. Gonna add a can soon and the transformation should be done. I have Shad cases, TRex protectors, and the bar risers on mine. It's a nice ST bike.
  3. Got 1400miles on my 2014 VFR. I'ved noticed 3X that the gear indicator goes to a solid line particularly going from 2nd to 3rd? Has anybody else had this happen? Ideas to the cause or is the gear indicator bad?
  4. You got to get something you are comfortable on. That said, try some Pilates to alleviate back pain. If you go bagger, don't forget about the FB6. I love mine more than my VFR but both are great bikes Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. T Rex Slidders

    I have them for my 2014. I went there in person on a FJR I use to own. They are great folks. I thought the price was a bit much but still not too bad. It is a nice piece of equipment Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. My New Bike

    I will be honest, you look good in leather. [emoji3]. Color contrast on the bike looks good too. Taking my basic 2014 to the shop for some transformation work. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. instability on rough road

    I don't have the Deluxe and find it rides a bit rough over road imperfections. Really haven't gotten mine on too many twisted yet. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Shad side cases for 8th gen.

    I was just surfing ebay to see what was available and saw shadoutlet had mounts and cases for the 8th Gen VFR. This is their new 3P system. It was $439 + $50 to ship so I'm thinking it was hard to go wrong for $489. I've been happy with other Shad stuff I have on other bikes so I should like them. It will make butt look a lil' big.
  9. New 8th gen - $6,500!!

    Smoking deal.
  10. Rear Luggage Rack

    Thanks for the link.
  11. Rear Luggage Rack

    Can you hyperlink it? I searched Shad and didn't see it.
  12. Rear Luggage Rack

    Got a Shad 46L topbox that moves between my 2 bikes. Now that I have the VFR, I will buy the Shad mount pretty soon. I also see they have mounts for there newest hardbags. You could be all in for about $600. I will probably go that route in a month or two.
  13. Just got back from dealer this afternoon. I have a White non deluxe I am picking up tomorrow. I am trading a CB1100 in. The CB looked sharp but just kinda disappointed when I went on 2 long rides on it. I also sat on the F6b again and was thinking of trading my RT and TMax in for a used F6B. I believe a nice ride will be in order.
