Dave, congrats on the new bike! What made you jump from the VFR so fast? Just curious.

the vfr was great, when i was on vacation i was riding with guys that had bigger bikes and it was rough tryin to keep up we were doin some hauling ass alot,i originaly was gonna buy the bird but i thought the vfr would be better for long distance, i guess you live n learn,i would recomend the vfr it was a great bike but not enough motor, if it was 1000 cc it would be the best bike out there i think

Dave, there have been rumors circulating for some time now that Honda will soon introduce a litre VFR. If you ask me, the XX is just that. Hope you enjoy it!
