  1. Great - thanks - I saw that other thread, but your link is the best looking one I've seen...Appreciate it!
  2. What's the make/model of that dual-usb voltmeter, and did you say you'd just do the voltmeter and the relay, not the switch?

    Anchor Bar in Buffalo 070716

    Also google "Anchor Bar Motorcycles" - a pleasant surprise to see so many bikes littered throughout the bar!
  7. Agree - when you throw ADV riding into the mix, the bike that tops the list there is the Triumph Tiger 800 - about as fast as the VFR (in the right hands), and opens up all the unimproved roads the VFR can't go on. I have a brother in Wichita that got a VStrom for that reason - had ridden all the straight roads he could on his Valkyrie, and thought, as he rode past all the jeep trails outside of town - I need a bike that'll take me down THOSE roads! VStrom did the trick, and we even did a trip to the Dragon - me on my VFR, him on his VStrom, and both had a blast...
  8. Teeing up a softball, here I think! I bought this knowing I can only get one bike, and there is no other bike that can do it all; possible exception is a Triumph Sprint. This year I've done an Ironbutt from Wichita to Kingman, AZ, and an about to do my 2nd track day. Zero disappointment in either. I put no fewer than 10k miles a year. It looks great and feels great. Living in the midwestern US, the heart of Harley country, when asked why I ride this instead of a Harley, I say, because MATH....It costs a quarter as much as a Harley, goes twice as fast, using a third the gas...No. Freaking. Brainer. Can I name any one bike that can beat the VFR in any one thing? Of course. May just be me, but can I name one other bike that can do it all? Um, no.

    Met Brother Mike in Wichita, then Ironbutted our way to Kingman, AZ. Left ICT @6am Central; Arrived in Kingman @ Midnight Central same night. Me on my 2005 VFR; Mike on his 2009 FJR. Bike was flawless and no problems. That was the start of a weeklong trip through AZ, UT, CO.
