  1. 944 Porsches are my weakness.....argh. Lucky for me I love riding my VFR so much that it keeps me from other distractions.
  2. Kudos and a big ditto to the OP. I've posted the same....less extensively and eloquently. The VFR is the only motorcycle I need. ADVs well, another man's poison.
  3. May 28, 2018 Revised Feb 2021 Quiet Contemplation... It was a beautiful place, a thick canopy of trees, the still languid quiet afforded by rain that had already fallen . Hard to imagine this natural cathedral was on a public road, not any road, The Blue Ridge Parkway to be more precise. The side of the road where I had stopped, welcoming as it was, did not qualify as a designated parking area. Like so much of life, this moment of quiet and stillness passed quickly. It would be the final act of a 4 act play . Act 1; Thunder Ridge via Haro Extreme
  4. 600 miles. Replaced them with Bridgestone T30s at the initial 600 mile service.
  5. A lot....but worth it ! http://daughertymotorsports.com/
  6. week 10 of 2020 for the front tire week 43 of 2019 for the rear
  7. PR2s arrived this morning. They were made in Spain. See attached photos of manuf. codes.
  8. Tomorrow it's supposed to reach 50 so I'll be taking a short ride hopefully in the sunshine. 50F is the lower threshold for riding imho. 40-50; Ride only for an emergency ( car has a burned out clutch ) or I need to ride into the shop for new tires. 50-60; Not really comfortable but acceptable especially in the winter. You take what you can get... 61-65; Getting better... 66-89; The sweet spot. Temperature is not the limiting factor. 90+; Humidity dependent but, for the most part the fun is gone and you're trying to find
  9. Forum members please ignore my last posted references to MotoGP anything... That sounds ridiculous... I just don't use my back brake....much. and prefer CL pads when the fronts wear out. TGIF !!!
  10. Here's my front pad only history. Original Pads replaced at 33801 Mi with Ferodos ,did not care for the way the Ferodos felt. They were replaced after 18290 Mi with CL set 1. Ferodos replaced at 52091 Mi with CL Pads. CL1 set 1 was replaced after 20200 Mi with CL set 2. The pads you see in the picture are CL1 at the end of life and CL2 at the beginning. The CLs suit my aggressive MotoGP wannabe style. I suspect the rear pads will remain OEM well into the 100k mi zone.. I watch a lot of MotoGp and try to copy the style.....discreetly
  11. After 72000 mi on my VFR the rear pads are still original and mostly unused....
  12. Replaced old carbone lorraine front brake pads with new carbone lorraine front brake pads. I think I got my money's worth out of the old pads !
  13. Uh....I am on a 60k mile interval. Had 6 valves out of spec at the time . I posted about my experience in 2020.
  14. I will photo the date codes upon their arrival....
  15. If only all the magazine testers ( or any potential owner ) would ride a VFR shod with something other then the stock rubber, the world would be a better place. Ditto with how any rider would enjoy this motorcycle after a proper suspension upgrade. I'm afraid I suffer from bias against the Dunlop brand. RS3s are the same money as the Michelin PR2s on Amazon. I had great experiences with them (PR2s) years ago.Let's see how I feel in the spring when they ( hopefully ) go on.
