Default Not that I don't change my mind, but...

What happened to the CBR600RR you were so enamoured with? I thought you were saving all your lunch money to get one.

I don't want to clutter up the Duc with gadgets. The friend I ride with most often is a Beemer rider and I'm sure he will slowly acquire every gadget under the sun so I'll take advantage of his GPS.

Default Re: Ha, your all hypocrites! (MO staff I mean)

Just to be clear (I know you were kidding) That was me piloting the video bike. I never crossed the double yellow. The other riders were aware of what was going on, and were riding at a relaxed pace. No limits were pushed in tha making of these videos and the only animals harmed were the cow in my Burrito.

I have a 2002 VFR800 and the same day I bought it, I rode four hours on a Ducati ST4s.



If the VFR is not a Sport Tourer, then yank out the Duc. Very similar rides.



And the VFR does come with luggage, stock.



Mine did Each hard luggage can fit a Medium sized helmit.



Stock seat is more comfortable than the Da#%# Corbin I bought. I did buy some Genmar highrisers (to fix the reach from the Da#%# Corbin to the clip-ons).



My buddy has an Aprilla Futura in his test fleet and like my VFR better.



In general, the VFR is a great sport touring bike (wish it had the VTR engine in it).

Some Dip-S#%# pulled out from a side street directly in front of last weekend.



My LINK-ABS equiped 2002VFR saved my butt.



Nuff said.

Same thing I was thinking...I agree with the handling comments as once you are are in "combat mode" in the twisties you can really lean this thing over with lots of feedback and ground clearance (even with the centerstand)....but the gas mileage! I got only 24 mpg just yesterday during one tank(120 miles and used 5 gallons equaling about 132 miles total on an entire 5.5 gallon tank of gas.)

I just got this bike and I am pleased with the utility and practicality I get without giving up any handling. (previously rode 97' YZF 1000)

Default Re: GSXRWOLF don't confuse these guys with facts and data.

I really need to ride one of these torque monster inline fours. I admit I have been really biased against the inline fours because of my belief that v-twins have more torque.



I have stated earlier that I have ridden Honda 900RR's and Yamaha's R1 predecessor (YZF1000?) and both required a downshift to pick up speed, not so with any of my 2-valve Ducs or my Honda VTR1000.
