  1. 47,633 miles. I'm the original owner, I bought it in 2016. The 36k service was performed at Cycletune in Portland as well as replacing the shock and refreshing the forks. It has the Honda quickshifter (up only), Akrapovic slip on, and Power Commander 5. Solo cowl included along with back seat and passenger grab handles. The OEM hard bags which clip into the subframe are keyed to the ignition (bag liners included). It has all the typical scratches and flaws of a 47k mile bike that's been around. $4,000 obo
  2. Sports Touring is dead, replaced by adventure touring. /DoomandGloom
  3. I'd suspect this is so they can appear to be controlling the people-density in the grandstands.
  4. Good to know. Last I hit CA36 was in 2018 and it was still pretty tore apart in multiple places.
  5. There's several 4th gen bikes for sale in the Portland area on Cycletrader. For instance: https://www.cycletrader.com/listing/2014-Honda®-Interceptor-5015037118 Given my situation I may be selling mine at some point, but I haven't decided.
  6. My local dealer more or less refused to check the valves at 16k miles. I had an independent shop check and adjust the valves at 38k miles and only two valves needed to be adjusted. YMMV.
  7. I've visited some gas stations that didn't look like they were open. Just run down shacks in the middle of nowhere with a pump out front. Finding out that the name brand gas station you'd planned to fill at closed a year ago and having to fill at Uncle Peet's Gas and Meth emporium is why we call it an adventure.
  8. I have my bike back. After four months of waiting for parts (warehouses show parts in stock that aren't and by the time they figure it out its been a month....) I had my mechanic use a rebuild kit on the fuel pump. Its running good now. Now I need to snowbird south and ride around the desert for the next few months! The fuel filter was pretty well clogged. My reasoning is that had something to do with the pump failing.
  9. My 2014 is staying stock. This was merely a hypothetical. I realize even IF someone did this and made it work, it wouldn't be an RSV4.
  10. Thank you for the info. It sounds like going about it electronically (with the solenoid) would be the more feasible route. I've had the opinion for a while that the VTEC would be better if it were a switch on the handlebar, like a "sport mode" switch (as opposed to something done to meet emissions standards). Anyways the idea of making the V4 into a 4-valve all the time engine came up discussing performance bikes (Panigale V4, RSV4) and theoretically how to build-your-own Honda V4 superbike using a VFR as a base. I'll keep this in mind if I ever acquire an extra VFR and a few thousand bucks to waste 😄
  11. This is a hypothetical, just something I've been kicking around in my head for a while and now that I'm not riding all the time... Hypothetically if someone wanted to modify a 6th/8th gen bike to be "always" in VTEC (always running on 4 valves per cylinder), how would you do it? The best way to get rid of the rough VTEC transition is to always run in VTEC!
  12. May 2017 at Thunderhill Raceway Park, Willows, CA. Second time back on track after a pretty bad wreck in 2015. Don't mind the watermark, Keigwins (now Carter's) was giving us watermarked JPGs with the logos to share on social media as part of their marketing that year.
  13. Near Long Creek, OR. Dodging a rain storm. Spent the next day getting dumped on.
  14. I'm not trendy and rich, more like unemployed and make poor financial decisions with my severance check. 😉
