very (very) nice pic. but...

what did happen to your rims ?

 

Power coating happened to them. Surprisingly cheap and very durable so far. I didn't care for the brown (Ok, bronze) wheels.

For reference, I do not particularly hate the red rims on the pearl white VFR.

 

YMMV.

always a matter of taste..

The good thing is that you will not miss it on a parking lot.

but you'll have a hard time selling it one day.

my half a cent.

I think it looks good, but white rims looks even better, reminds me of the very first VFR750F that came out back in -86, white with white rims and I remember I thougt damn that bike looks good.

Sdouble, I think you're wrong about that. It's the first bike I've owned in years where people roll down their windows at stop lights and tell me how great it looks. People even pull up along side of me on the freeway and give me the thumbs up!

don't get me wrong.

I do love your bike. I think that the pearl white is rather nice and particularly fits to the bike.

I'm just not a fan of the rim color. But again, just a matter of taste.

I'm not big on modifications, but the red looks classy.

Just realized that this was an 8th gen thread.  Sorry about the ol' 6th gen rwb above, need to look more carefully.  To make it up to you here is a photo of my buddies 8th gen along with his FZ6R in the deserts of AZ near Tucson on a visit I had last year.

A beautiful machine in a beautiful setting. Nice! You obviously have great taste in mc's.

It's an nth gen; timeless!!

Maybe I’m a bit off topic since it’s not a 8th gen but it’s a V-four and a nice one
Spotted in Milan at the EICMA

And I believe it's the first bike with the under-seat exhaust design.
