    I bought a 2007 RWB two years ago as a stablemate for an '06 ST1300 I'd bought new. The first year I continued to use the ST as primary but last year I found myself riding the VFR more and more. It's great for solo riding. Mid-year last year, I decided to sell the ST and hang on to the VFR. Plan to keep it forever. The size and power to weight ratio are perfect for me.

    If you are serious about getting one you should head over to and take a look around. Lots of good info there. I have been all over that sight and picked up some helpful knowledge about the short comings of the VFR. Mostly the RR and Stator on the 6th gen. There is a member named Tightwad that sells a VFRness and this helps to correct some of the small factory wiring that leads to this problem in the first place.

    I still have mine. Put over 10K on it last year. I added some Helibars and some lowered foot pegs from another member on either or, can't remember which now. Anyways, it has made the bike much more comfortable and helped allow some multiple day, thousand mile rides. I also put a fused block for accessories and added an Alaskan sheep skin seat cover to help the rear end. I just added on a Pro-oiler so I can tour like a shafty. Can't wait to put some more miles up!
