The 2001 and older gear driven cam models are such an affordable/rideable classic !
+1. After ten years and more than 100,000 miles together, my '95 VFR and I began to show irreparable signs of wear at about the same time. I would love to have replaced my old bike with a minty Gen V model, but my injured and arthritic bones dictated otherwise. Raised bars and lowered pegs are no longer enough to make these great bikes a viable option for me. There are many reasons to rue the ageing process, and keeping a VFR out of my garage is foremost among them.
