Shots from a recent trip to Kentucky. Taken in West Virginia on the James River & Kanawha Turnpike.

Did you drill the VFR top triple clamp for 7/8 bar mounts? Stock lines and cables reach that far up? Some more pics from different angles would be appreciated.
Must be comfy on those long mile days.

Some asshole stole one of the bolts and washer that holds on the rear cowl on my 99' VFR last night while I was on a date. I've found an OEM replacement online but they want $16 for it. I'd MUCH rather buy something from Home Depot for a few pennies. Have any of you guys done the same, or know the measurements that I need?

Why not just take one of the remaining bolts out and take it with you to Home Depot and match up the threads?

That's an idea, but I thought there might be some accurate measurements I could jot down to make the process less painful

I've heard of them walking out on their own, pretty odd thing to steal, but random assholes are unpredictable. I hope it wasn't a fellow vfr rider, that'd be just wrong

Taken today. Just before it went on my truck.

01, 20K, several extras, beautiful condition. The Erion pipe with the gear whine is just fantastic!

Weather permitting we're going to get acquainted tomorrow morning.

i fitted my rear hugger today, powerbronze,

half way through, i had the chain guard off, with the 2 brake lines dangling, and dry fitting the thing, before realizing it just slips over the top of the chain guard, i didnt need to take it off and get my hands dirty,

anyway, it went on pretty easily, with the a few metal brackets, it doesnt appear to have any clearance issues with anything at all, made sure it didnt touch the exhaust, but will keep an eye on it, with suspention travel it might. so hopefully it will keep the panniers and everything else nice and clean now
