    VFR opinions?


    I've been F3 hunting, but the more I see 'em the more I like the VFR750. Anyone had any experience with them?

    I've sat on one up at Depot before, but never taken one out. I'm looking for something relatively comfortable for long rides (although after the 'Gixxer, a piece of splintered plywood is the lap of luxury) as well as reasonably reliable..

    VFR opinions?

    If you are looking for a sport touring bike I have nothing but praise for the VFR, while they are not a bike for tricks, speed, or real fast riding, They are perfect for most riders. They have lots of bottom end, they are very comfortable, a good choice if you are happy at speeds of under 120mph and want to spend all day in the saddle, it would be one of my top choice in a bike, if this is the type of riding you plan on doing..Bob

    VFR opinions?

    For what it's worth Q, the VFR will most likely be the Tiller's stable mate within the next year or two. Personally, I'm waiting 'til they actually build a better one before it'll happen. But if that isn't their plan by the time I'm ready, I'll be in the market for a top-notch used 750 too...

    I really like the styling of the new ones, and it's awesome they're FINALLY available with decent hardbags from the factory. But the fact that this one makes no more power than any of their 750's did really turns me off. I think they left out a few HP's in their engineering efforts...

    30k on this one..

    http://www.cycles128.com/PreOwnedVehicleDetail.asp?sid=1069991571X4K19K2002J4I23I43JPMQ215R0&Manufac turer=1&Vehicle=16090

    But a) I can afford it, and b) If it needs a new motor, the rest of the bike's in great shape. And it has the coool single swingarm..

    VFR opinions?


    First off a VFR is 10X better than an
    F3 for everyday riding. It has torque
    where you need it. Yes I would sell my
    1995 750 for 4K. It has 29K on it, a 2-bros
    slip on, and the stock pipe, the seat cowl
    and passenger grab handles. I also have
    lockable Hepco & Becker hard bags but those
    are extra. If you want to see some pics
    go to http://community.webshots.com/user/junkyard31
    and look in the bike pics section.
    Email me @ jsutton@gmavt.net if you're interested.
    FYI I am in Vermont near MontP.
    Happy Sunday
