  1. One other thought...If it's rpms that are the issue cruising along at 70 mph, you could change the gearing a little to bring the rpms down at higher speeds.
  2. Congrats on new-to-you bike, and good luck fixing it up! 🙂
  3. Congrats on your 6th gen and welcome to the forum! 🙂
  4. Congrats on your new 8th gen! 👍
  5. Congrats on your 6th gen. and welcome to the forum! 🙂 Hopefully you can solve the electrical issues, if it really has any. I don't think my old 2004 ever had an R/R issue, though I did have the wiring harness recall performed in 2008. I did have one fried one stator when the bike was 7-years-old, at 59,000 miles, but my understanding is that's not too unusual at that mileage.
  6. Unfortunately, I am out. I've been planning to go, but things aren't going to work out for the trip to NC next week. I'm still planning to do a trip, but a little closer to home, and I'm meeting my wife and our older son for a getaway. I hope to get down to the Franklin area for a few days later this summer. Have a blast, everyone, and ride safe! 🙂
  7. Maybe they're comfortable, but I've never understood the thought of, "Hey, I know! Let's make part of the motorcycle you hold onto more slippery!!" Genius.
  8. That is super well done! 👍 Thanks for sharing those photos.
  9. Congrats on your Goldwing! 🙂 My decision to move on from my VFR was more about my knees and neck. My back was never a problem, but the last couple years my knees would get sore after a few hours of riding on long days and trips. Also during long days my neck started to get sore from "looking up" all the time while crouched in a sportbike-like riding position. I could have probably solved both issues with lower footpegs and higher bars, but I was ready for something different after 14 years on the VFR. I loved my VFR but for me it was time to move on. Regarding tour
  10. Though you've been lurking, welcome to the forum! 🙂
  11. Ick. The longer they're on there, the harder it will be to clean them off. And I agree with your motel comment. I've felt a little bad for the housekeeping crew when I left a yucky washcloth or two behind after using it to wipe down the front of my bike - and helmet. 😞
  12. Beautiful! Excellent work and care on that 5th gen. I have a friend and riding buddy with a spotless 5th gen in red. I'm always amazed how good it looks after 20+ years. Like new, really, much like your blue VFRs. As for the service records and ownership papers, I kept just about everything from the 14+ years I owned my 6th gen, including my own service records and receipts from the mods I bought and installed. I gave it all to the buyer when I sold the bike last fall. I think he was very appreciative of that. I would want the same when I buy any used vehicle, but I think es
  13. Congrats on your new VFR and welcome to the forum! 🙂 Sorry to hear about the missing bolts. Hopefully the replacements will arrive fast. Have fun and ride safe!
