Looks great. I hope you like cleaning wheels...

Let us know how you like the suspension. Jamie is from Daugherty Motorsports, right? They're on my short list to upgrade the bouncy bits on my '95. I'm not looking for race track performance, but something that will be stable and predictable in the twisties and not bash the crap out of me and the bike on washboard roads like it does now.

I had white wheels on a cbr 900 rr before, just sayin I have a few cans of pledge!
The suspension was redone by http://www.daughertymotorsports.com/
and it is the shit. The original stuff was bouncing all over the place making the bike almost unbearable. Thanks again Jaime!
Yea Northern Colorado is one of the best places to ride I have ever lived. The dirt is great too.

New bulb. They have two filiments in them -- one for the lower wattage running lamp (the one that is burned out) and one for the high wattage brake lamp.

Why does it take 30 minutes just to bolt on two side bags?

Sw-motech?

I had Givi's on my 2002 and it took about 5seconds to this them on.

Sounds like you and the VFR are having a nice get-to-know-you phase! Start planning your summer tours...

Just finished installing re-worked forks and shock from Jaime and powder coated the wheels. Of course had to add a rear 8 spoke to remind me of my 1992 VFR 750. Here is what it looks like now:
Just about every bike looks better with white wheels. I love the white wheels on my '90. I'm going to have my FZR wheels powdered white as well.

Blew the motor in my VFR about a week and a half ago. The CCT broke and the chain dropped off the cam and wrapped around the crank. So I'll be parting out an entire '02 VFR w/ABS. If anyone needs 6th gen parts hit me up. This almost ruined my summer trip, but it looks like I'll be buying a 2009 Concours 14 from my Grandpa and riding it back to CA with him on his Harley.

Life started giving me lemons about 5 years ago, now it seems to be just handing me dog shit. Trying to make the best of it, but damn it's depressing. I really liked that bike, the V4 sound was just fucking incredible.

Ouch! I'm very sorry to hear about this. Glad to hear that you're pushing ahead with the good stuff, though.
