    98 VFR for sale

    Photos fo the 1998 VFR I have for sale, March 2018
  2. I have a factory service manual for an 82-83 VF750S Sabre if anyone out there owing one. A bit of VFR pre-history, I owned an 82 for 30+ years and just recently let it go. (I still can't figure out why I sold the '00 VFR...) We're packing up the house in prep for a 2-yr trip on the bikes to South America, so it's FREE to a good home, just PM me an address to send it to. Keith
  3. Judi just reminded me that we put the stone down off the road (and the Ranger's won't know about it) because we did it on our own without permission. So it's best not to ask anyone official about it and draw attention. Not to seem selfish, but it's really just for us who know where to look, and who had a connection to Rich (that's all you VFRD folks, whether you met him or not). But they did put up that great sign for us! Thanks everyone, for the kind words and memories. And if I wasn't hosting a BMW campout the weekend of the Oregon Trails thing, I'd have to crash it and say hi to olds f
  4. We now have a perfect marker for finding the stone we set that marks where Rich came to rest! Head up Mary's Peak Road off of Hwy 34 until you come to Parker Creek Falls. Turn around and go back down maybe 150-200 yards. Exactly where he left the road, there is now an "ELEVATION 3000 FT" sign. In the photos below, you can see the sign, and my GS is parked directly above where the stone was placed, about 30-40 feet down from the road. You will see a large log, maybe 4' dia., lying at the base of the tree that it snapped off of. From the elevation sign, angle down to the left and you will

    Fun on other bikes

    The VFR stayed at home that day
  6. The marker itself is down off the road, and there is no marker to tell you where to look. And things have changed a little since they re-paved a section of road there. Next time I'm up there I'll note the landmarks on the road by it, and maybe put a secret paint mark on the edge where you go down to it. It's quite unofficial, so the ranger would have no knowledge of it. I'll post up again with how to find it. Maybe the GPS coordinates, too. Thanks for thinking of Rich. I still drop in to VFRD from time to time, even though the VFR was sold quite a while ago. At least I still have the S
  7. Just wanted to drop in and say hi

  8. That is one good looking bike, and one great set of roads. Hope you were able to get out for a ride after all today, Paul.
  9. Yep, Depoe Bay track, about 10 minutes from the house, 5 by VFR. Can anyone name all the racers? Five are from VFRD. First one gets a free hour on the track.
  10. Happy Holidays, Keith. See you next year at the VFR meet - in Oregon?

    Nice - where are we?
  12. Today was a thoughtful kind of day. I took a walk up into the woods above the house (it's deer season here), lovely morning, and saw a lot of nothing. But while walking back, I thought it would be a great day for a ride into the Coast Range to see how Rich's stone is getting on. I've had his coffee cup in my cupboard for three years now since Rich died, rarely use it, and it occurred to me that I should just take it up and set it by his stone in the woods. Rich LOVED coffee, and used to razz me about my preference of tea. For those of you reading this anew, my best riding buddy Rich had h
  13. For sure, nice shot. I love riding in that area.
