I love my VF1000R
I bought an '85 about 6 years ago for $2K. It had a salvage title after having been low-sided and having the fairing repaired, but it only had 6800 mi.
I just today installed a Dynojet kit, it already had a K&N filter, last year I put Cobra F1-R slip-ons on it, and it has LOUD dual Fiamm horns on it. Last year I also got rid of the stock turn signals, put flush-mount Lockharts in the fairing and converted the taillight to double as turn signals.
It was heavy when it was new, let alone these days when open-class bikes are barely over 400 lbs. Sounds great though, and very torquey. Beautiful to look at. Not many on the street, so there's some level of exclusivity there.
Not real comfortable at legal speeds, but it's really nice once you crank it up. Goin' for a ride tomorrow, in fact. Enjoy the bike! (If you still have it.)
