Got me a VFR800 fi from 2001 only 4 weeks ago.
Previous bikes I owned were from "hell no" to "yes!"
Which bikes were under my bum? From GS500, SV650, GSX600/750F, cbr600fi, cbr1000rr, cbf600, vfr1200 and a lot more.
The vfr800 is a bike that teaches me to learn to ride again.
Great bike! She challenges me all the time but I'm still able to counter all her cures.
Not a bike I would advice for a beginner though.
Even with my experience on so many bikes it's still a new learning process.
Great bike! When you're ready for it, otherwise it could kill you in an instant.
