I bought my first Honda VFR in the early '90s which it was a '86 model. I let a friend borrow it and he laid it down and it was totaled. Here it is 25 years later and I've purchased a 2001 Honda VFR800 and I can't say enough about these bikes. I love the feeling in sound of the VTech kicking in. It makes me want more and I'll continue to buy these bikes until I'm no longer able to ride.
