  1. I logged nearly 80,000 miles on two 5th gen VFRs between 2010 and 2017. I had a ’98 from 2010-15, then sold it to purchase a low mileage 2000 model. Unfortunately, my son crashed it last year, bending the front wheel, forks, and cracking the frame at the steering head. All I’m left with is a bin of parts and tools from past and planned maintenance projects. Great souvenirs of my most favorite bikes ever, but I’ll never use them, so it’s time to part ways. Cutout Rear Cowl: $60 plus actual shipping cost Here is a rear cowl that I cut out so I could install the grab handles. I found the grab handles to be very useful in putting the bike up on the center stand for tire inspection and chain maintenance. Corbin Smuggler Seat (cutout) with 5th Gen Grab Handles: $400 plus actual shipping cost The Corbin is a little firmer than stock; super comfortable and good looking. The rear cowl has a lockable flip up lid that allows access underneath for stowing small items (camera, water bottle, sun glasses, etc). This one is in very good condition; not perfect, there are some hairline cracks in the paint on the inside of the compartment. Also, I have cut it out for use with the grab handles, which may or may not be appealing to you. Note: I’ll sell the seat separately, but the seat must be sold before I’ll part with the grab handles. Price on the seat w/o the handles negotiable. D&D Slip-On: $60 plus actual shipping cost Got this one with my 2000VFR. It is a little louder than stock with a deep, throaty sound. Painted with VHT Ford Red engine enamel. Bracket and clamp included. VFR Right Lower Cowl (fairing) $60 plus actual shipping cost This fairing was involved in a crash that rashed up the side and broke up the lower stay area. The damage has been repaired. I used this part to test paint colors, so it will need to be sanded and repainted. It is a genuine Honda part, not Chinese. Also, some of the foam backing is in well-used condition (see pictures) PM me if you are interested in any of this stuff. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Let’s talk. Thanks for looking. Jeff J.

    Bay Area roll call ride 2018

    Thanks, Jim. I had a great time despite the traffic. The morning ride was great. I especially like that section of Hwy 1 north of Jenner where it climbs up a bluff over the ocean and then back down through several hairpins. By the time we got there the temperature had warmed up and the ride was shaping up nicely. Just south of Gualala, though, it started to rain, and the sky north and east of there looked pretty dark. We took half an hour in Gualala, and then decided to head back south over the bluff. That's where the ride kind of unraveled (for me). I don't think I'll post a Sunday ride again. Why not? Too many people out for a "Sunday drive". Reminded me of my youth on the Oregon coast; long strings of cars, motorhomes, and trailers with drivers that don't use pull-outs. Jim blasted through that crap in short order, but I got stuck behind a butt-ass in a rust Dodge Ram who aggressively blocked my repeated attempts to pass. I thought to myself "this guy's crazy!" and plodded along for 12 miles or so. Call me chicken, but the way that guy handled his truck was frightening. We ate at the River's End in Jenner, then headed east on Hwy 116. That road has potential, but at 3:00 PM on a balmy Sunday afternoon, a lot of folks were out taking in the sights. By the time we got to 101, there was 10 miles (give or take) of lane splitting through Petaluma before the traffic opened up. 10 hours 5 minutes, door to door; 301 miles for me. It was nice to wind out that boxer a little bit, though. Now that Junior is back to work, I got obligations overseas that need my attention. May 12 looks like my last opportunity for a ride of any distance until November. I'd be happy to post up another ride if there is any interest. Wentworth and Icehouse worth a damn in mid May? PM me if you're interested. Sorry this didn't work out for most of you, thanks for past good times and looking forward to more. Jeff J.

    No problem. I saw "CHIPS". You can get Police Officer's Association card that is sure to get you out of tickets. Just waive the card and you're home free. I'm heading down to WalMart to get one now!

    UPDATE The weather looks so nice now that I'm afraid I'll be sorry for believing the weatherman. Nevertheless, I've already screwed this up for everybody's schedule once, and won't do it twice. Updated ride group looks like this for the ride SUNDAY, April 29, 2018: IN jeffyjeff BrianF RC1237V jlpvfr (meet on road between Gualala & Jenner) MAYBE (probably?) tjclyde OUT bayarearider crazybro (he got the job in Reno, CONGRATS!)

    Greetings all! PM sent to all participants Wednesday 04/25/18 at 10:30 PM Weather forecast for Saturday looks sketchy. Yesterday's forecast was rain on north coast, today the forecast is drizzle. Probably won't be unbearable, but likely the roads will be wet. Sunday looks better, weather forecast wise, and maybe more enjoyable for everyone. Let me know if you can accommodate the change. Greg had to fly back east, and won't be able to make it this time. I will send a test text to the cell numbers I have from 2 years ago. Looking forward to seeing everyone again this weekend. (Sunday?) Jeff J.

    No shame here. It's kinda cool to ride a bike where performance expectations are not stellar. It's a gas to ride, and in the hands of a capable rider, would probably raise eyebrows. Those Metzler Roadtec 01's are really confidence inspiring tires. JJ

    Lost the Love

    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.

    What a response! 6 takers in the first 22 hours...I knew there was something I liked about you guys. And George might be right about the Ducati's outnumbering the Honda's. At least a few of us still ride VFRs. IN jeffyjeff crazybro tjclyde St. Stephen Brian F. bayarearider RC1237V OUT RichVee4 the mice in bayarearider's airbox.

    Alright misfits, time be now for another group ride. Out of respect for the possibility of snow or slides in the mountains, I suggest another coast ride. Weather permitting, April 28, 2018, we meet at Starbucks, 260 Northgate Drive, San Rafael 94903. We ride over to Pt. Reyes Station and up the Pacific Coast Hwy. Lunch in Elk, and back down CA128 to Cloverdale. We top off the ride at the world famous Hamburger Ranch; those up for more fun can continue on CA128 to Calistoga and Winters. Looking forward to good weather, good roads, and the camaraderie of good people. Kickstands up at 8:30 AM. Hope you can make it. https://goo.gl/maps/qRiZaSP6buL2

    D&D. It came with the bike. I painted it recently. Stock color was black. Jeff J.
