I think all of them through 1998 eat the R/R at some point. I was carrying a spare one around on my bike for a while til I found out the updated one came out. I bought my 97 from a buddy with some IRS trouble, and I still think it was one of the best decisions I ever made. (Not on his part though, he often tries to by it back)

Mine was originally owned by a real live rocket engineer at NASA, who was so anal retentive, a windscreen screw vibrated out and he parked the bike for a month to wait on the right one because the dealer onlly had the screw in silver, and his was black. He sold it to my buddy with 4500 mile son it when he got into drag bikes, and my buddy put about 2000 on it before selling it to me.

It has a TBR left side pipe, a really good jetting setup, and thats about it. When I get back from this Dog forsaken place, Im buying some hard bags, and taking to the roads. The paint has faded a little since these were taken, she had to stay outside for a while. I think I will paint her flat dark grey when I get back. But maybe not, who knows.

Looking for a seat

Did about 1000 miles last weekend on my 99 and I'm thinking about upgrading the stock seat. Any guidance/recommendations on corbin versus sargent? And by chance does anyone have one for sale?

Does a VF700F count?

Then I've got one.

Doc and I are thinking of a lunch type meet and greet for people around the Carolinas/Eastern Tenn/GA area VFR riders. Thinking of meeting in either Charlotte or Greenville SC. Any takers?

I might be interested, depending on when it is.

Thats 4 possible people interested, I think Greenville SC wouldnt be a bad kind of central location. Just not sure how far it is from me.

I found out that it is 4 hours from me once I posted that. Bad thing is my back and backside are going to be killing me once I get there, but I could always tow the bike(JUST KIDDING). Does anyone know anything about Charlotte enough to suggest a place to meet. I can be there in 3 hours.

I have a red 07 that I just picked up with 816 K on the clock.

Now I have to go read this thread to see what is going on here.
