  1. Bike trip 2017 (192)b.jpg

    Lovely shot of Monitor Pass, one of my favourite roads in NorCal.

    Gotta ask where this is. Good on you guys for navigating past this big divot. On my trip this summer we had to pass on Angeles Crest Hwy because of a much smaller sinkhole near Wrightwood.
  3. You have a lovely VFR. Be very careful with the fairing pieces as the tabs and clips are pretty fragile, more so 20 years on.
  4. Personally, I giggled at the heart-stopping 748cc, liquid-cooled V-4
  5. Having dug out all those old brochures I might as well share the 1990, 1991, and 1992 VFR750 as they appeared in the Canadian brochures of the day. As before I have somewhat large jpg scans if any is interested.
  6. Whilst traipsing about my place organizing some new bookshelves I came upon this page from Honda Canada's 1993 brochure. That year we got the white colour scheme and doesn't it look fantastic - not at all like a refrigerator. Btw, it listed at $8,999 Not sure how big the file will be, but my original scan is ~5000 px wide.
  7. So I might have done a thing......

    Ruh roh, hope everything downstream of the tank is ok - primarily the injectors. Any thoughts n how the tank got in such a state?
  8. The Races

    I see you have a map on the front mudguard to lead you in the right direction.
  9. 4th Gen no charging while running

    In addition to Dutchy's suggestion you should check the starter relay. It is located under the front of the seat near the battery. The output of the rec/reg goes through it en route to the battery. Here is what a bad one looks like: bad starter relay Make sure to lift up the boot over the small gauge wire as that is the connector that can be comprised from overheating.
  10. Colorado Highway 92

    Your photo reminds me why I like to take long trips, especially over twisty mountain roads.
  11. Summer Summit 09 019

    I see that red continues to be the dominant VFR colour Where in Colorado is that? I've been to the state a couple of times but definitely don't recognize the location.
  12. Tire change mid trip in CO.

    I finally got around to posting my 2015 Colorado trip to YouTube. Let me know what you think. Colorado 2015

    Beartooth Pass has three very different personalities; the western (Yellowstone side) switchbacks are like something out of the Alps, up top there's a few miles that make you feel on top of the world, and the east similar to many Rocky Mountain passes. Beautiful scenery in either direction. That said I agree that riding eastbound is more fun. Here is a cock-eyed video form my ride back in 2011: Beartooth Pass 2011
  14. Tire change mid trip in CO.

    I have no first hand experience with Eisenhower Tunnel 'cause we took US40 north over Berthaud Pass instead. I have mostly used Pilot Power over the past few years, but in 2015 I tried Pilot Road 4 and got close to double the life: 16K km vs 8-9K km on the same bike and similar rides. Near Yellowstone NP and Beartooth Pass is Wyo.296 - Chief Joseph Scenic Byway. It is another great motorcycling road and pairing it with Beartooth makes a lot of sense, if time & wx permit. Btw, if you were planning on staying nearby, Antler's Lodge in Cooke City has some lovely rustic cabins.

    Every good ride comes to an end, but not always under such glorious skies.
