  1. Years of riding dirt bikes with 38"+ standover height gives me plenty of practice being stable resting on one foot.
  2. Personally, I find that having just one foot firmly on the ground is far more stable than trying to tip-toe between two feet during a stop. Just rest your body on one thigh on the seat before you come to a stop, you will have much firm footing than tip-toe between both feet.
  3. Nice find. Y2K VFR should have black OEM wheels, but silver wheels looks just fine. I picked up my 00 VFR w/13k miles on odo back in 2016 under $3K, now it has over 19k miles, in need of new tires, chain/sprockets. Looks like the previous owner might have lowered the front end by pulling the fork legs up in the triple tree. High mount Staintune exhaust looks sharp, does it also have 98-99 headers?
  4. This was taken back in 2005.. my previous VFR:
  5. Put on some cheapo, lightweight mirrors, universal windshield from a previous bike.. 599 is sitting nicely among my other Hondas:
  6. Yeah, wouldn't feel too bad if it gets damaged or stolen in the Big Apple, which is likely going to be the place I keep it. 599 will replace my 04 Ninja 250 that I sold earlier this year.
  7. It's been nearly one year since my last moto purchase. Today, I bought a 04 Honda 599 for $1600, 15k mi. needs chain/sprockets/tires/front brake pads/lines:
  8. I had a 98 VTR and a 03 VTR in the past.. 98 was a salvage, converted to naked with front mount radiator, rode it for about 6k miles and sold it for a decent profit: My 03 was a flood salvage, waterline was 3/4 way up the wheels. Changed the oil like 5 times, cleaned out the rest of the bike, Lowend torque of large displacement V-twin is very addictive. They have the largest set of carbs on production Hondas, as the RC51.. very thirsty... usually full tank of gas can barely get to triple digit miles if you ride aggressively.

  10. Over two decades on 2-wheel, never had a claim with my insurance co.; only others. Most of my (street-legal) bikes have only liability coverage anyway. Antique, dual sport or trail bikes just get insurance transferred as needed. I keep my bikes mostly stock, not attractive to criminal eyes, never had a bike stolen, with exception of the modded 1977 CT90, that one had the ignition location changed, only I know how to turn it on. Money is only good when you spend them.
  11. I enjoy customizing small Hondas: [/img] I keep one original C90 just because: and I like my mid-displacement V-twins: Large displacement Hondas also: My Daily commuter in metro NYC:
  12. No wheelie as you passed the camera? Friend of mine rode along and took my pictures: http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/forum/index.p...si&img=5066 No clouds, but nice view of the ocean: http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/forum/index.p...si&img=8135 Highway cruising mode: http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/forum/index.p...si&img=4688
