Cool!

I am the only VFR1200F owner in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles.
NoHo Honda is supposed to be getting another FR1200F for their showroom today.

Yesterday while I was paying for my bike, an old man who is a friend of the sales manager sat on my bike and Bill Robertson, the owner of the dealership said "Get off that bike, it is sold!"

OMG
Never in my 48 years did I think riding a motorcycle would be a totally new experience for me but, my VFR1200F is not like any motorcycle I ever rode before.
It is easy to ride and she has boat loads of power.




I went to Stunt Rd but, when I got to the top, it was covered in clouds, the marine layer was flowing right over me.

My VFR is a totally different machine, the Blackbird does not even come close.

Honda really went all out to prevent the average joe from sevicing his VFRF.
You know it takes two people to check the oil and it has a fucking oil level window too.
Now that I have had a couple of days to adjust to this bike, I have come to find a few of the issues no one has ever mentioned about this bike anywhere I ever read about.
#1 is the horn and signal switch have swapped places on the left side control.
#2 The horn sucks and is getting changed for somethin with a little bass in it, it sounds like a kiddie toy.
#3 The seat can definately be improved upon.
#4 My leather jacket put scratches on the tank's black paint where a tank protector should be.
#5 The tank cowling is not magnetic and I can put a tank bag on.
#6 It gets shitty gas mileage just like my Blackbird does, I was on empty at 135 miles.
No one makes anything for this bike yet.
But, I love it anyway.

I have not really been in the throttle with this bike yet, I am trying ot break the motor in right.

Does it go the 191 miles on a tank like they say it does at only 35mph?

Because at 75-80mph it only goes about 135 miles before the light is flashing under an 1/8th of a tank left.
She took over 4 gallons when I filled her up and she only holds 4.8 gallons to begin with.

I think she will get better after the 1st oil change and when some awesome synthetic oil replaces the break-in dino oil.

I have all kinds of pills to take care of my ills while I am out and they are all legal and they are all mine.
I think I can handle a ride to Oxnard on Sunday for some of that BBQ we had two years ago with Rich.
