In 1998 I jumped back to the VFR fold with this brand new VFR800. Resprayed wheels improve visual and a Yoshimura RS3 helps unleash the aural. Unfortunately this bike met an untimely end when it was stolen less than a year, and 25K km later.

What a loss to have that bike stolen.  I know how I would have felt if my then new 5th gen had been taken.  It was just a magic purchase that was love at first sight.   I wish I could go down and buy another new one.   I'm lucky to still have it today.  Spectacular shot - well deserved to be on the front page.

Thanks for the kind words. My '98 VFR800 replaced a VTR1000F which replaced a '91 VFR750. I loved all three but my fave of all was the yellow '99 VFR800 that replaced it. Much as I love my '09 VTec it hasn't captured my heart. More than once I've perused the want ads looking for another '98-'01 800. Maybe one day…
