  1. Sometimes you just make a mistake, and you don't realize it until it's too late. I had a car I loved, a 2005 Honda Civic Si (the 2-door hatch generation no one bought), which I traded for a new 2007 Honda CRV - a nice, practical family car to meet our needs - and two weeks later I regretted it very, very much. I hated that CRV. It was a great family car but soooo boring to drive. That buyer's remorse is on my mind while I'm looking at cars to possibly replace my Miata. I adored my VFR and miss it sometimes, but I love my new bike and it's been a suitable replacement
  2. Those photos make me want to go to the garage and give my motorcycle a big hug.
  3. I'm one of the few people I know who actually like roundabouts. They are more efficient at getting traffic through an intersection, time-saving, better for the environment, and many times prettier than a 4-way stop with or without traffic light. Plus if it's clear I can whip my car or bike around them quickly for fun! 🙂 But... I have come close to getting hit a few times while in the roundabout by drivers approaching it. I don't know if it's because they didn't understand they have to yield to the vehicle already in the roundabout, or they just weren't paying atten
  4. Congrats on your 6th gen and welcome to the forum! 🙂
  5. Welcome to the forum! I don't even own a VFR anymore and I still check out the forum pretty much daily, that's how great it is. I'm also hoping to attend the annual spring memorial ride again this May! 🙂
  6. Welcome to VFRD! 🙂
  7. More like 2052 for me, if I live that long!!
  8. Congrats on your 5th gen. and welcome to the forum! 🙂
  9. I always thought my 6th gen. was a terrific all-arounder, and it's one of the things I loved about it. But when I got into riding in 2006, most people wanted exactly one thing out of a street motorcycle. They bought a cruiser, a tourer, or a sportbike. Adventure bikes like the GS existed, but I think were a very small percentage of sales overall. I think the market was really dominated by cruisers and sportbikes, with tourers coming in a distant third. And that's the way it was for several years. (Also, good *new* beginner bikes were practically non-existent, but thankfully that's no lon
  10. Congrats on the purchase and welcome to VFRD!! 🙂
  11. Congrats on that beautiful 6th gen. and welcome to VFRD!! 🙂
  12. My last several oil changes on my old 6th gen, I used either the Mobil 1 or Purolator One almost exclusively. These are only a few bucks more than the cheaper filters, and the better quality is absolutely worth it.
  13. Great introduction post and photos! And an amazing looking VR500F. 👍
  14. Congrats on your new bike!! And yes, ride it like you stole it. (Except during break-in, and except near known speed cameras.) 🙂
  15. I know what you mean. I check the weather forecast every couple days, thinking maybe it'll be warm enough one day to at least ride to work. I work from home most of the time, but have a short commute to the office, and if it's warm enough I'll head in on the bike even if I don't need to work at the office that day. It's supposed to get up to 40 here the next couple days, and that's my threshold. Fingers crossed! 😉
