  1. 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 and starts over again. Add a 2 to the left side of mine. Yes. It has rolled twice. 221,208 km. This thing, regardless of some pretty severe abuse, runs like a timex watch. I have replaced the stator twice, and had a hell of a time trying to find out what was causing some problems with starting in first gear a while back. That turned out to be a severely won clutch. After the clutch rebuild, the thing ran almost like new again. The Honda tech who worked on it told me I should easily roll that odometer once again. I crashed this thing on some god forsaken road in Baja in October 2018. We just picked it up off the road, well mountain goat trail really, then I just rode it away.
  2. Hi 34468Randy, Thank you for your donation of 25.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  3. All the photos are nice Belfry but that last one is quite majestic. It really hits home in that one just how small our own things are in comparrison to Mother Earth. Fantastic. Looks like you really enjoy our nature.
  4. I need to get one exactly the same, but with a huge tear drop running through it. Green in colour as in envy.
  5. Awsome. I have experienced similar, but I was in a truck...not riding a bike. Incredible.
  6. I don't have an answer to that but you have a limited number of members who are monitoring this thread so even though there may be very experienced and capable people here, you are missing out on many. I suggest you consider posting a specific thread about this. You will get far more replies than on this thread I am sure. May the Gods of Stators and rectifiers be with you.
  7. I so wished I was able to be there. Is this an annual event or bi-annual event? Depending on just when it happens, I may be recovered enough from up coming hip surgery to make it next year. That will be the goal anyway.
  8. Ya guys and gals. Keep the reports and photos coming. I just get deeper and deeper into depression because I had to back out. I am sure I will meet with a couple of you for burgers and beers when you get back to the LMD area.
  9. I have replaced two stators while on tours. In both cases, is behaved like it had a dead battery. Matter of fact, the first time, I did replace the battery. Hope you get it worked out nd continue on your way.
  10. OK you guys. Who got turned on here? If you stopped for a photo, there had to be interest.
  11. Some of you may remember from the 60's a show, Have Gun Will Tra avel" An old wester duster. Well today it is "Have Credit Card Will travel" Hey. I should have started a television series. I likely could have become rich and would be attending this road show after all.
  12. Hi. Reaching out to my local VFRD family. 

     

    My red 2015 VFR was stolen early Thu morning. 

     

    License C72119. 

     

    Has factory quick shifter, handlebar risers, and rear tire splash guard.  Also has a RAM cell holder with white Qi charger on handlebar.

     

    If you spot it, please call Surrey RCMP 604-599-0502. Thanks...

      That sucks Randy. Best of luck with recovery in undamaged condition or full replacement by insurance.

      sfdownhill.  You know it was not me that had a bike stolen.  It was TechRider who sent this message to me.  But I will watch and kick that son of a bitch right down deep into the dirty ditch where he belongs for stealing someone's ride. The basterd.

  13. Regrettably, I have to back out of this trip. I wrote off my truck and to get back into another vehicle is going to cost me more than I had thought. Spending a lot of money for this trip at this particular time is just not wise. Maybe next one.
  14. So. I was wondering. What is the deal on the request for us to bring flags? Are you speaking of a large flag or a bumper staff type of flag? What are we going to be doing with them? I can bring one, even get a BC flag, if there is a reason. But travelling by bike, especially if you are packing for a 2 or 3 week tour, storage space is at a premium. Though a flag would not take up much space, it does take up space. I would appreciate knowing more about this.
  15. I just noticed....all my signature stamps have dissappeared. No wonder I tend to get lost these days. good thing i am arriving there with a group. Could very well get lost again riding solo on my way back though. Getting all worked up about this. Can't wait.
