  1. An Akrapovic exhaust for sale for your 8th gen! 3.5lbs with removable silencer. Fits with OEM saddle bags. $350 with shipping in lower US. Honda even recommends it for 8th gen. It’s probably one of the best performing exhausts for our bikes. Wicked sound!! https://www.akrapovic.com/en/moto/product/15112/Honda/VFR-800F/2014/Slip-On-Line-Titanium?brandId=30&modelId=137&yearId=3445
  2. For this route, I’d suggest wine bottle opener as a must 🙂
  3. Congrats! 100K is definitely celebration worthy! Way to go; it must have been hard to keep maintaining and sticking with your “old” machine throughout the years while seeing other new bikes on the market. Congrats for sticking to one bike and keeping up the love for the bike and motorcycling.
  4. I think it’s fine to go if you follow the same preventative measures. Eating out may be not the same experience as pre-Covid but if you camp and bring your own food or do some take outs you might not miss on anything. Everyone’s risk tolerance is different, but I am glad I went.
  5. I would not worry about the tires. If it was stored inside and mostly on the center stand; ride on. Those OEM will wear off in 4k and you can but your favorite tire.
  6. Only 20lbs in 37 years-doing good, man! 🤪
  7. They will sit on that ST for a long time. I too find ST on paper a touring rig, comfort is draws me to consider as a future bike. We are not getting any younger, you know. However, at that price, a new style Goldwing can be found for $16K. I guess f you are looking at 700lbs bikes, why not go all the way and consider the king of touring 🤪
  8. Lots of them on the wildlife loop. Happy prairie dog’s Father’s Day!
  9. Sorry to hear that; I am in the same bot so I feel you. Please do take the ride and take care of yourself.. Once you get a job, you wish you had the time to ride! It sucks hearing about all the layoffs and the economic impact. It's good that we have a therapeutic hobby.
  10. RWB w/ white rims is my favorite looking VFR of all.
  11. Yeah, I'm trying to keep it positive and make the best of it! Thanks!
  12. In Black Hills, it dipped to 48F at night. Not bad in my opinion but sleeping in a hammock for the first time and so I got cold. Next day, I was in Buffalo, WY and it dipped to 50F at night but I was in a cabin so it was kind of stuffy. Temps are probably getting even warmer as we are approaching summer. The pics with all the snow is way up on the top of Medicine Bow mountains in WY. A great place to ride through but it gets way too cold at night.
  13. Best advice I can chime in is to make sure the VFR you want is comfortable for you. Take it in a freeway, see how the air flow is for your height, knees, elbows feel, etc. Is the suspension soft/harsh for your roads and riding style?! DLX has some adjustment but it’s pretty minimal. There is little adjustment with seat, the handle bars can be raised with Honda or custom risers, foot pegs can be lowered a tad, but overall it will be a sporty ride. If the bike fits you and you feel comfortable in a stock form, you are more likely to have it for a long time and enjoy the ST scene.
