  1. I remember. You were journaling a big trip through Belgium or something vaguely Frenchy like that. Someone turned left in front of you. Which is different than the time some truck backed up into you at a stop. I’m glad you’re still riding, wrenching, and posting.
  2. I think there are a lot of former VFR owners riding Ninja 1000s, as the N1K occupies that same mid-sized, sports-touring niche. The big upsides of the N1K: Notably more torque/power riding on comparable weight IMU-based cornering ABS/TC (2017 and later) Ride-by-wire and integrated cruise control (2020) The big downsides are: Somewhat buzzy inline 4 No center-stand Insurance can be pricey Not nearly as lovely as the 8th gen I would be super interested to hear from any VFR owners who have spent time on a 2017+ N1K.

  7. I have a 2005 that I purchased used. I suspect that it probably spent at least a few years garaged and unridden. The notion that old fuel thickens and clogs the perforations or that the old seals fail just makes sense to me, so I'm inclined to pull the injectors and have them serviced. At the same time, I've also read that having the fuel injectors serviced is a form of performance voodoo. To my mind, the strongest argument in favor of the "voodoo" analysis is that inspecting the fuel injectors is not mentioned anywhere in the Honda maintenance schedule. Why would having the injec

    The bike and the road are competing for top billing in this photo. I think I might have to give the nod to the road. It's like some Hollywood fantasy version of a road: swooping bends, immaculate surface, bold white lines left right and center, and everything landscaped in rolling hills of lush grass. Where are the pot-holes, gravel, tar lines, discarded syringes, and crumbling shoulders? I don't think I've ever seen a road like that in my life, except maybe the driveway at some yuppy golf-course or winery. I need to find out where this place is and move there.

  11. ...and The Dude abides. Seb, I couldn't help but notice the post counter under your avatar: ...so I've been meaning to ask: 1. Is that a real post count for you, or was there some weird server restore back in the day that resulted in a large archive of posts being assigned to you? 2. If genuine, how does one accumulate more than 23,000 posts? I think of myself as an active member of the board, but at my current post rate of approximately one post per week it would take me [...does some math...] 450 years to rack up that many posts. I don't think I'm going to get there. Or,
