I was waiting to sell my VFR but I said screw it and just bought an 05 yesterday. It's absolutely intoxicating I love this bike. A bit harder on the wrists then the VFR but it makes up for it with the way it handles and sounds. I wish the damn rain would go away so I could put some miles on it only 50 so far. So far the bike has impressed me with how smooth it is except around town why honda geared this thing so tall is beyond me I thought my VFR was bad. I'll be fixing that shortly along with the tail, pipes and a pc.
