Chain is good, tires good. Bike DOES have a centerstand. This is basically a perfect specimen. Located in the Southeast. $5250. PM me for details. Bent. UPDATE: The bike sold this morning. Back pain was tearing me up so something had to give. Maybe there's room for a Goldwing, LOL. I'm not dead yet, just bikeless right now. Be careful out there.....Bent....the legend lives on!
  2. My 2014 is on the original Yuasa that came with the bike. That's all I need to know about batteries. It starts and runs like it was new.
  3. FOR SALE: 2014 Honda Interceptor/VFR. Standard model WITH center-stand. Color is red. The motorcycle has never been dropped or crashed. There is not a scratch or mark on it and it has 17800 miles on it. Runs like it should, chain and tires in good condition. Ready to ride anywhere with a full tank of gas.

  4. Thanks Terry Cloth. Sometimes I really wonder. I decided to have a Labor Day weekend with no pain so I took a lot of naps, LOL!
  5. Roadsmarts will be my next tire. Dunlop seems to be less costly than my fav. Angel GT's that I can never find discounted. They sure do wear great though.
  6. I too remember that one like it was yesterday too. I saw this tractor-trailer coming straight at me (us) in the middle of the sharp(ish) curve so I made more room the only way I could which was to go to the outside while in an apex. (not a natural thing to do!) which was breaking a normal line and going to the outside line. Thankfully, the truck driver cut his steering wheel right into the solid rock facing and destroyed the right side of his truck and trailer for our butts. All that when almost back to Franklin from just a quick trip to the Gap Store. I feel for the truck driver but he sa
  7. Angel GT's. They're expensive but last a long time and the edges, after yesterday, gripped superbly. Got a Cycle Gear flyer in the mail this weekend with rear Bridgestone T30's for $99 and I'll pass on them. Bridgestones beat me up too badly. Hard sidewalls. Never will one be on my wheels again.
  8. Yep, I remember that guy Bent. I have only been on Wayah Road once since then so don't know what condition it is in. TMAC used to be a 60 rider event that was not to be missed. The old Franklin Motel has been bulldozed. Many stories were told at that place. We used to rent the entire motel for the weekend. I remember TimC, MaxSwell, Katherine, Sweeper, and too many others to name. Sadly, the event has faded away as faces have changed through the years. I took a trip to the area two years ago and it is not nearly as infested with sport bikes as in years past. Parking Harleys at The Ga
  9. I use OEM oil filters, Honda uses them, they are easy to find, including, non Honda service and repair shops and I know what I am getting. Once again, the only serious issue I've ever heard of was from many K&N oil filters that have very suddenly "dumped" oil all over the road that the rear tire rolls right over with potential catastrophic results for the rider. If not catastrophic results, then wherever it happens, there you are. The sudden dumping is due to the faulty welded nut on the end of the filter. VFRWORLD has good pictures of it with results on the road. Seeing is believing.
  10. If you haven't read about the many near death experiences caused directly from K&N filters, you need to look it up. Not kidding on that. Hell with the oil issue. I have yet to hear of an oil related engine failure in over 20 years of reading VFR forums. Just use oil in them and change it when you feel like it. DO NOT use K&N filters. Look it up.
  11. Apparently, I am lucky on the EO. It sure makes a power difference in the 8th gen., just as it did on my 5th and 6th gens., when I had them. Ethanol is a scam in many ways. It isn't saving any whales and it takes more BTU's of energy to make a gallon of it than there are BTU's in the gallon. Government helping us out again.......

  14. Rode is after several weeks of just sitting. It ran good but it was a little cold so it was a quick ride. Machinery isn't meant to sit idle. Letting that happen bugs me. Put some fresh gas in it. Non-ethanol gas. If you haven't tried it, get some 87 octane E0 and see how much different it runs.
  15. Anyone ever heard of an oil filter causing a problem besides K&N? I just use OEM's and forget about it. I hope everyone knows not to use a K&N oil filter due to the nut on the end having weld failures and spreading oil under the rear wheel while underway. That could be deadly. Just say no on K&N oil filters.
