    Back on a VFR!!

    If you use your phone as a GPS and are touring, they are not a distraction but a nice accessory. Coupled with a Sena, you could listen to music or use voice commands to call for help in the event of an accident. To the OP, RAM mount in the steering head is a pretty convenient place IMO.

    Loaded up and truckin'

    I swear that looks like my cousins old house! Is this south of Dayton? It was pretty miserable around here the week of the 4th, hope your trip was great nevertheless!

    Honda vs police helicopter!

    The guy is supposed to be a squid and was only going to the gas station for a drink, right? Then doesn't it seem odd that he was in full leathers, gauntlet gloves, and armored boots? Something very And who in the hell just goes to the gas station for a drink at a 100+ mph?! I'm thinking it was going to be a staged youtube video that turned into the heli chase. I hope that guy shit his leathers. I hope the video also enables the police to track this douche-bag down. What would have been a speeding ticket- maybe a reckless op -turned into speeding, reckless op, endangering the public, fleeing the scene and anything else they want to come up with. Whatever the story is, the guy is a grade A asshole.

    Wow! That could just as easily be me & my bike in that picture! Well, except for the great lean angle. And the high gloss shine. And the rider being trim and in shape. But besides that, we're exactly the same!

    Forks Loose?

    I had AllBalls on my 5th gen and they were great. This is the first time I have heard disparaging comments about them. Granted, it has been quite a few years ago that I did the swap. I would still be surprised if their reputation has tanked that quickly.

    Unchain My Bike... Or So I Thought...

    I didn't re-read the entire thread, but I am pretty sure that Larry's bike is a RC45 and not a 5th gen. So the swingarms would not be swappable. Just my best guess.

    Cheap eBay lowering pegs

    That was a big concern of mine in the beginning. The whole reason I started looking at other bikes years ago was because of the inherent buzziness of the inline 4. I sure as heck didn't want that on my VFR, so I went with the BLS blocks. The V4 design is inherently smoother so it wasn't really an issue but I wanted to be sure. After I bought my 6th gen and it had the MRA version of the adjustables with a teeny tiny thin strip of rubber I realized it made very little difference whether I rode with my boots or just regular shoes. On my 7th gen, I just went with the Buells since they were cheap and gave me the clearance. The i The knurling on the Buell footbegs is not very aggressive: I would bet the the toe of the shoe would receive more wear from shifting than the sole from the pegs.

    Cheap eBay lowering pegs

    Just to clarify or expand on my previous post, I bought the BLS blocks for my 5th gen and loved them! My 6th gen came with the adjustable pegs. I would have bought a pair of blocks for my 7th gen, but no one ever visited BLS for him to make some. That left the Buel footpegs. *edited once I made it to a computer to be more descriptive.

    I had the MRA version of those footpegs on my 6th gen. Hated them. While the ability to adjust them was nice, the fact is that they moved your foot out away from center. So when shifting gears or braking, you would have to point your toes towards the inside. Several missed shifts occurred because of that. I have the Buell footpegs on my 7th gen and love them. Here is the original post about the Buell footpegs I used: I think $45 is about what I spent too. <edit> Found them online: https://shop.newcastlehd.com/part/n05201ad - left https://shop.newcastlehd.com/part/n05211ad - right

    It's like a V4orgy!
  13. Oh no Dutchy! When did this happen? Is she OK?
  14. I think it is an totally fair price. The only reason I haven't bought one yet is because of the kids school expense. I can't see the pictures you posted, but I saw nothing wrong with the most recent design.

    Not happy with my Delkevic high-mount slip-on

    Generally I would agree with you in regards to cans. However, when I had my 5th gen I used a low mount Delkevic for when I was touring and it was an excellent value. The sound was good and the fit was fine AFTER a bit of fanagling. For those on a budget or those who merely wanted to drop some weight off the bike, Delkevic is a good choice. The only problem with Delkevic is that they are just very generic. They are not specific to any make/model. Same can for everybody with a different pipe. But it keeps cost down I guess.
