He'll skip right to the Goldwing. I hear they handle "like a couch on rails".

Hey K.J.,

You should come out for the Smackdown this fall. You could be the weatherman. Follow us to the overlooks and when you arrive you can give us the temperature. I think that is so funny to have a thermometer on a motorcycle. I guess it helps you to figure out why your shaking during the little winter blast into the mountains.

Thumbs up cool link

I seen that link on the VFR mailing list but I forgot to save it in my favorites. I was not aware that the front brake lines were seperate from the rest of the LBS system. I might have to get me some steel braided lines after all.

after 10,200 miles on my 2000 VFR I think that it is an excellent bike. I just put on a full erion racing exhaust system and it really woke the bike up but I haven't been able to ride much since then because of the weather.

I tell ya, ~and you can laugh if you want, but if I could afford it, I would have one of those new goldwings right next to my VFR and a 929 track bike...and a boxster and a M5....

Luke, I saw that too about the front brake lines. I will be putting SS lines on soon.
