  1. The torque of 8th is overstated. Just like the hp prowess of the 6th gen so is the torque of the 8th gen. The main benefit of the new bike is the tourque dip. Otherwise, it’s not making any more torque than the 6th gen. I think the new bike is geared a little lower so that’s why it may feel like that. All of which can be addressed on the 6th gen with power commander and a good dyno tune and new set of sprockets.
  2. Not quite, it’s got smaller side cases that can hardly fit one small helmet, rear swing arm covered by an ugly exhaust and a whopping 2-3 hp less than 6th gen:) Now, everything else is better on 8th gen.
  3. I rode to Deckers last week, and there were lots of gravel but still fun. Let’s put something together for 3 rd week in May or anytime in June.
  4. I would too if I had such bike! Ride safe!
  5. Let’s do it. We can meet at MoCo in Morrison, stop for Deckers for a snack/drink and finish the loop through Terryall with a final stop inJefferson.
  6. Need a VFR riders get together for a a loop of Deckers and Terryall roads. That’s a 200 mile loop (from Denver) that would satisfy most viffer owners.
  7. Sorry to point it out, but it's childish/bean counting comparison. Even though you are probably right about those observations. In real world, sport touring wold-who cares which bike is 0.01 second faster,-you will not feel much of the difference. That beemer is no way a better bike, I bet it it has that annoying buzz that most bmw800s are known for. I bet the weight difference once you going would not seem that significant. The BMW carries less gas too, by the way. Honda reliability/V4 engine, looks, over bmw. Having said that, you're obviously going to get skewed recommendation here so it's best to ride both to see/feel for yourself.
  8. On the other hand, 6th gen pros: bags fit a full size helmet, better lights (illumination) for night riding, sounds a tiny bit more throaty. Open rear swing arm and yours in RWB with 25ed sticker. One day it may be collectible for those that like stickers:)
  9. Keep the RWB. The only reason I would upgrade if I owned a high mileage 6gen and and was looking for a newer reliable VFR, that would need less maintenance. Power differences are so minuscule that are not worth talking about.

    Nice bikes! Welcome!
  11. Good looking bike! How are the engine vibes?
  12. The double stickerz; it increasesthe displacement 🙂 I will miss your VFR videos on YT even if it’s all on straight roads.
  13. And I believe it's the first bike with the under-seat exhaust design.
  14. Curious, how did you like BT-016 Pro. I have a set waiting to be installed. Did warm up fast? I know it depends on riding styles but how many miles did they last for you?
