  1. Check out this video for a little inspiration: I first saw this on the Pacific Coast riders forum (IPCRC) in 2011. It was reasonably popular back then, and earned it's producer some industry awards; maybe its already been posted on VFRD. As a boomer who has already entered my retirement years, I sometimes wonder how long I can keep riding before I become a serious danger to myself and others. I find so much enjoyment in riding; for me, motorcycling is my "fountain of youth". It will be a sad, sad day when I realize it's time to call it quits.

    D&D. It came with the bike. I painted it recently. Stock color was black. Jeff J.
  4. Put 58,000 miles on my '98 in 4 years, 10 months. Sold it to a friend on May 16 with 115,927 miles on the odometer. He took it out for a test ride before we made the deal, as he pulled into the driveway he said, "I like it better than my 7th gen." "why?" He said, "It's about 100 lbs. lighter." It was a great bike, and I hope I won't regret letting it go. 50 mpg and a 250+ mile range when I could keep the speed to around 70 mph. Barely burned a drop of oil. I found a yellow 2000 VFR with under 25,000 miles on it, and got it for $2,400. I have put 2,500 miles on that one already. Time will tell if I made the right choice.
  5. Slither, Mine does the same thing, and has for years. I wouldn't worry about it much if you only notice it at idle.
  6. Stan probably would not have hit the 800,000 mile mark on the same engine. Wear on the main bearings and piston rings probably would have resulted in low oil pressure and high oil consumption. Jeez, he was doing an oil change every week! One thing sure, the type of riding he was doing, long haul every day, was perfect for making his engine last a long time...fewer heat cycles, fewer cold starts, lots of long distance riding with everything at operating temperature. I just turned 100,000 miles on my Honda Pacific Coast after 6 years, 10 months. Stan would have hit that mark in a year. Good story.,
  7. Attached is the article mentioned by Mispent Youth and VFR Capn. Too bad Stans bike wasnt a 5th gen. 77,000 miles on mine. Enjoy. Jeff J. Britains Highest Mileage Rider.doc
