  1. It was 50F that day, so not so bad.
  2. Nothing wrong with a breakfast Guinness. A pork chop in every glass, after all.

  4. Thanks! Yes, the RF650 is a little bit overkill. But, I like overkill on items like that. I live in a very arid climate, and it’s possible to go up to 4 years between flushes, but I still stay with a two year interval. I have never had such low chain wear on my old 6th gen or on my current CBR600RR, 20k miles and the chains would be done, though I do pay attention to adjustments and lube. Despite everything being well within spec on the 8th gen OEM chain and sprockets, I just felt it would be prudent to change them out before the season really kicks off
  5. Got a bunch of things done all at once: New DID chain and Sunstar sprockets despite everything still being in spec, with the OEM chain and sprockets still looking good at 40,150 miles (!) (I only use Honda spray lube on the chain) New adjustable billet levers from Japan New NGK iridium plugs Coolant flush Brake and clutch fluid flush and replacement with Endless RF650 Endless PRO2 front pads New Honda OEM quickshifter (busted the peg on the first one) Honda synthetic oil and OEM filter H

    done

    Jaw dropper. Great job.
  7. Mr. Peart and Mr. Stoner have a hobby in common, which I have helped each with, though I can't claim to know either very well personally. However, any Rush fan knows Mr. Peart in particular seems to prefer the tractor-like qualities of a certain three letter Teutonic machine.
  8. The Honda ST1300 tank pad is perfect on just about any generation of VFR.
  9. Thank you! I also appreciate the understated nature of the looks of this bike.
  10. I'm about 3/4ths of the way through a set of PR4's on my 8th gen and seeing pronounced feathering of the sipe blocks both front and rear. I suppose I have done too much aggressive canyon riding for the intent of these, but after 3000 miles with about 1000 left on the rear, the handling is still excellent. Getting at least 25% more treadwear out of these compared to PR2 on the 6th gen. Next will be a set of Dunlops, Q3 front and R2 rear.
  11. Looking where I want to go

  12. Interesting thought, but the dark gold looks pretty good and is rather less labor intensive... Photo was in a twitter feed today from American Honda.
  13. Working on smoothness.
