  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.

  4. A 2018 Trek Domane SL5 with disc brakes and an old Lemond Buenos Aires. I like both of them, one as much as the other.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. Anyone here ever change just the oil and leave the filter in? I generally change every 4K but have been doing it based on time because it doesn't get 4K miles on it in a year any more. Was thinking it's such a PIA changing the filter and that it holds so little oil I may just drain it and refill it. Knowing me, I would just go ahead and do the filter too but just asking if anyone else does it. When it does get ridden, it gets very hard riding in twisties at high rpms. What say others?
  8. I beat the snot out of my VFR Sunday, put her up and always wonder how they take it without blowing up. The Angel GT rear is holding up amazingly well too. Tires are better than they used to be.
  9. 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
  10. Honda Civic which I have. 40+ mpg., goes well, and while plain Jane, is the best buy I ever made in a car including a Z06 piece of garbage quality.
  11. 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.
  12. If you look at the numbers, a VFR will outrun a lot of cars out there. That said, how much risk do you want to take? I would say I was outrun by an old but "fixed up" Mustang yesterday. I proved to him I could hang with him but the speeds got too high on a curvy road and I had no intention of doing that when I left home so I wanted to make it home. At a stop sign, I pulled up next to the car and it was beautiful sitting there with loping cam. Sometimes people make you want to play but be careful.
  13. Glad you're OK. The Blueridge is a great place to ride or drive slow. I'd like to do it again with the spousal unit. We've done it before and find it hard to drive fast the scenery is so good. It's also a great place to get a FEDERAL speeding ticket. Those boys tend to take no prisoners. Speaking of bicycles, I rode my new Trek carbon fiber hard last Saturday then rode the VFR hard Sunday and am paying for it today. Fun doesn't suck though, LOL!
  14. 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
  15. I use OEM filters because they're good, cheap and I don't worry about oil filters. I think Honda knows what filters to brand for their motorcycles. Just another opinion. Let us know what is causing your leak. That one sounds strange.
  16. There are many better places to ride in the area besides Deal's Gap for challenging twistie fun. I would rather have an accident (actually better to not have one) that was my fault than the fault of some incompetent idiot on a machine that should never have been on The Gap with any kind of rider(s) on it. i. e. What's a Harley with two 350# riders doing on Deal's Gap for a common example?
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.......

  22. 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.
  23. 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.
