  1. Sdouble, I think you're wrong about that. It's the first bike I've owned in years where people roll down their windows at stop lights and tell me how great it looks. People even pull up along side of me on the freeway and give me the thumbs up!
  2. Power coating happened to them. Surprisingly cheap and very durable so far. I didn't care for the brown (Ok, bronze) wheels.
  3. I was finally able to capture the Pearl White beauty of my 2014...in one of the most beautiful areas in the Country, Sedona Arizona.
  4. I paid $785 including shipping. I asked for the VFRDiscussion discount. The sales guy (Dan) didn't know anything about that, but he gave me a 10% off-season discount instead (this all started in early Feb).
  5. I got my new suspension dialed in perfectly (or perfect for me, anyway). Hey there guys and gals! I simply could not stand the stock suspension on the “new” 2014 Standard that I bought last October. The front was so stiff, with so much stiction, that I asked the dealer to double check it before I took delivery. And, the rear shock would launch me off the seat over every sharp-edge (high speed) bump I hit, and it barely moved over anything but the largest low-speed bumps. I put a couple thousand miles on the bike, hoping that both ends would loosen up. They didn’t. The
  6. Had the wheels powder coated to match 8th gen red. They came out great...smooth and shiny. Surprisingly inexpensive. The brown wheels just weren't cutting it!
  7. My 7th and 8th gen Veefers. I traded in my ‘13 1200 on a BMW RT last April. I love the Beemer, but I I missed the 1200 so much that I tried to buy it back…twice. The dealer refused to deal, so I picked up a new 2014 800 in October (from a different dealer). Phenomenal bikes!
  8. SW-MOTECH Bags-Connection QUICK-LOCK EVO City Non-Electric Tank Bag SW-MOTECH Bags-Connection Slipstream Tail Bag Both bags fit like they were made for the bike! I used bulk elastic shockcord to fasten the tail bag to the seat (available from REI in the US).
  9. Thanks Slammer! I just created a gallery and uploaded a few pics.
  10. SW-MOTECH Bags-Connection QUICK-LOCK EVO City Non-Electric Tank Bag SW-MOTECH Bags-Connection Slipstream Tail Bag Both bags fit like they were made for the bike! I used bulk elastic shockcord to fasten the tail bag to the seat (available from REI in the US). Here's a recent picture of them in the wild...
  11. I lifted both wheels off the ground using my new Abba Superbike Stand (and the optional front wheel lift). $275 including shipping from England. Arrived in 6 business days. I bought it because I had a very close call with my Pit bull rear-wheel paddock stand. My bike was on the rear pit bull stand only. While I was reinstalling the radiator guard (lying on my garage floor), I turned the front wheel to get a better look at one of the screws…AND THE BIKE STARTED TO TIP OVER! I’ve never been able to bench press more than 180lbs, so I would have been in serious trouble if I hadn’t started pu
