  1. Lovely picture of a great machine. The pic invokes the Stephen King novel The Dark Tower. How does it feel to be at the nexus point of the time-space continuum? (Although the "tower" in your pic is somewhat unimpressive.)
  2. Welcome to the asylum AlexxL95 from The Land Of Interesting Weather. Dutchy is right; we'd like a picture of your machine to prove to us you are not a figment of our imagination.
  3. Welcome to the asylum apextech from The Land Of Interesting Weather. You obviously have fabulous taste in mc's.
  4. Fabulous picture of a fabulous machine.
  5. If these are made by Givi, this info may be helpful. Check with https://www.givi.co.uk/. If you can call USA numbers try these: North Carolina Location Nevada Location 9309 Forsyth Park Dr. 506 E. Glendale Ave Charlotte, NC 28273 Sparks, NV 89431 United States United States (704) 679-4123 (775) 359-0900 I have found their engineers are very helpful. As for the actual instalation, know the whole assembly is under slight spring tension when finally complete. This will involve slightly bending the lower support bars to connect to the screw/bolt below the pillion foot pegs. Key to assembly is to loosly get all the pieces into their respective positions before tightening anything down. Good luck.
  6. I'd love to make it to this event. Historically this is just about the best event on the VFRD calendar. However, now that I've got a dog to care for, I'll need to recruit a dog sitter. She is quite the handful so that is not assured. Ergo, I'm a strong maybe.
  7. I'm pretty sure that glorious whine of the 5th has contributed to my hearing loss, reinforcing the theory that Nothing Is Free.
  8. There is no better place for the best fix.
  9. While I've never been to the Keys, from what I hear, soon highwater boots may be necessary in order to keep ones feet dry.
  10. Holy socks! You could start a museum. No Multi Bike Syndrome seen there!

    Nice shot Knute. Looking pretty relaxed there pal.
  12. The same backatcha Pwing. And to all the rest of you VFRDers.
  13. Thanks for that aural lift; I'll be Waiting With Wild Anticipation for that sound for the next few months to do the same. Winter Waiting.
  14. Welcome to the asylum from your southern neighbor. As an owner of a yellow 2000 VFR, I predict you will be quite happy with your new machine. At least I hope so. And you may notice that the yellow machine takes 30 years off your age; it also attracks the opposite gender like flies, although I cannot attest to that first hand.

    I like the black frame.
  17. I agree 100%. Nothing but air filters from Mother Honda for me. P.S. Hope your are all right, with first the flooding and then the fires. Keeping you and yours in my thoughts.
  18. Wow! That's a beauty. Best generation in the fastest color. Congrats. You obviously have great taste in MC's.
  19. Welcome to the asylum. Lovely machine you have there. Shows you have great taste in MC's.

    Skids, this inquiring rider wants to know if you notice an increase in your conspicuity as a result of your added lighting. I installed LED driving lights (wide & short distance) to my forks. They, along with the LED headlights, seem to attract a lot of attention both from on-coming traffic and from vehicles ahead of me traveling in the same direction. I make sure the fork lights are focused so they will not hit on-coming traffic in the eyes. And I get no one flashing their high beams at me.
  21. Holy Socks! What a run of bad luck to spoil a get-away. I hope your insurance comes through for you. I can sympathize with your broken heart watching your steed immolate. And it's great that you yourself did not get burned. The terrain you videoed is quite stark. The state of Montana is called Big Sky Country. Your Terra Australis Incognita puts that name to shame. Yes please.
  22. Having owned 5 2000 or 2001 VFRs I've had to replace everyone's steering head bearings. Front end shimmies developed in each of them, one as "young as" 28,000 miles. In each case the effect was noticeable and a marked improvment. My first change out came around 70,000 miles on the Odo. The dealer first diagnosed a cupped front tire and he showed me why he thought that and they may have been a little cupped, so I had a new tire put on. It did not solve the symptoms completely. He then suggested replacing the steering head bearings. That solved the problem perfectly. I agree.
  23. From what I've seen come from your keyboard over the years I have to agree with Cluggo - you are at least brilliant if not a genious. So keep it up. Please.
  24. That is one fabulous looking 6th gen. IMHO. Love it. Ride safe and have fun - in that order.
