Bought in 2014 with 10,700 miles on her. Empty trailered to Virgina, bought from a pole barn, hauled to T-Mac where we found a rodent nest in the air box. (A pic was taken but I cannot find it). Too many upgrades to list but simply love this machine. 

That's impressive mileage for six years!  I used to ride that much, and hope to again someday.  🙂

I can't ride my VFR enough. Post up a pic of your mileage !

21,208 km may seem quite low to most. However, the odometer, on the 6th gen at leas., only has room for 5 digits.  It reached 99,999 km or miles, which ever you have it set at, then it rolls to zero a

Hit this a couple weeks ago on my '04.  Bought the bike from its first owner with 4,225 miles on it in August 2006.  My goal for 2020 was to see this number on my VFR.

Bought my 02 wrecked with 200 miles on it, rebuilt it and rode the crap out of it until 2016.

No doubt Bailey miles are never in moderation... 100K Bailey miles equals 300K normal miles... I gather you're still running 5w30 Mobil 1???

You know it Larry, thanks for oil your input throughout the years.

I actually just fired up my 6th gen last week after  4 years and it still sounds good!

Sept 14, Just back from the shop. 60163 Mi.

I think that's impressive mileage on a VFR for just six years.  Well done!  🙂

Are you hoping to sell it on for $80,005? Because I think you might be disappointed.

Maybe in some foreign currency you could get 80,000 something. Name of the bike is "First Wife" you being a sane smart person like you are, do you think I would ever, ever sell her? Let me answer for you, NOoO : )

I bought my NOS 2015 DLX on Wednesday. I'm very pleased that it appears I will get many (s)miles out of it for years to come with proper care. It's difficult to adequately express my level of excitement! I put 460 of those miles on.

Bought the bike in July with 10,700 and I now have 14,600. Back in the saddle after 22 years absence; this is my 4th VFR after two 700s and an '86 750 in red-white-blue (the prettiest, but less punchy than the 698cc!).  Here's a surveillance photo, prowling around downtown Philadelphia.
