1998 VFR800Fi in Red

by boybergs

I'm now 50 and have owned numerous bikes over the years. Ive always bought from new and they've always been naked bikes. I bought my 1998 red VFR 800 2 months ago and its left me wondering why I never before considered either an older or a faired machine.

I simply cannot fault it mechanically or ergonomically and its astonishing value for money. Superb engine, slick gearbox, good brakes and solid build quality. Even as a 15 year old bike it looks fresh and eye catching, sounds great ( fuel can ) and rides very well on plush but firm suspension.

If your looking for a fun, practical and reliable machine, I'd recommend this, the 5th gen VFR as an excellent choice.

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

Hot climate riding
by: Peter

Following Didier's comments, I have been touring Spain for three weeks on this bike with my wife. We had few days with 42C (108F), and it was uncomfortable with all the leathers were worn but that's how it is with such temperatures unless you're prepared to take them off, but then the safety issue. That was the only heat we were concerned with and I cannot remember any unbearable heat from the engine. I've had much worse in terms of this on my former bike Honda CB750 as it was naked.

How about riding in hot climate
by: Didier

I read on another forum that the hot air from the engine and radiators in city driving can be a real problem when it's already hot outside. I live in Florida and that concerns me. Can you comment on that?
