    Help me decide.....sell the VFR

    Cash is King, but the inflation Monster is always nibbling at his toes. Or something.

    You would probably have a better investment if you put your money into real estate, or stocks and bonds.

    Motorcycles are an expense, not an investment. Unless you are Jay Leno or other rich guy that can afford museum pieces. Euro bikes are mostly even worse on holding their value. Such is life. And people wonder why Honda dropped them from the lineup. Is there any profit left at that price? Or do they lose money? Yes, I acknowledge they are great bikes, but if they don't sell.....
  5. There is never enough time. Motivation can be a problem too. One reason I went from 3 older bikes to 1 near new bike recently. I find sometimes if I just push myself to get going, kick my ass into gear and get started, that begins the battle. Sorry, it is not half the battle, only the start. But you can't finish and go ride if you never start. Guess I need a different analogy for the house projects.
  6. Especially with the things in your garage list. Shop hours are expensive and can quickly cost more than an old bike is worth on the market. Value in use is different. Something can have little market value, but still be useful and fun. /Ramble.

    Why a red Guzzi?

    You should know never to drink and shop. Or at least don't go to the check out.
  8. I think they recommend replacing tires around that age. Just because they get hard. I would look it up and maybe change them even if they have tread. Also, Always look on the bright side of life! For sure youtube that song.
  9. You both have grins in those pics. Take care of the maint, and go ride, make more grins. How old are your tires?

    Track day

    Maybe you should raise the rear a tad to avoid that touching down the shifter etc.

    Ducati SS

    Or even a not so old low mileage one. Some people buy bikes and barely ride them. Then sell them after eating a big depreciation hit. I love those guys, but I don't get their motivation. Picked up a 2014 Monster 1200 last year for US$10.2k with 2,5xx miles and new rear tire. MSRP was I think $13.5k on them, and the new ones are quite a bit higher than that. I am done reaching and stretching for the bars and imitating a monkey with a football.

    Avon Storms

    Put a pair on my 98 VFR last year. I thought they were fine handled nicely, but new tires usually do. Had a good road hazard warranty included. Sold the bike after about 3 rides on them, so did not get a lot of time with them. Price was a bit lower than Michelin.

    Honda vs police helicopter!

    Curly was the best. Did we actually see a helicopter? How did they guy posting the video know where it supposedly was?

    Rear axle stuck

    Mine came apart all by itself.

    Anybody ever refinished a GIVI case?

    If you T bone a deer, or a car, or a cow, because you wanted a T bone steak, the sliders will do you no good.
