    I concur..cost effective, amazing gas mileage (if it meets projections up to 73mpg), and Honda reliability...hard to go wrong. I wonder if a 6'5" frame would be comfy on one? Guess I'll have to go by the shop to find out.

    It is indeed. So, one can grab a six pack and put in the "tank." See? Logical. :D

    yep. pop the pillion seat off to fill up.

    Pretty short wheelbase, I dunno that I'd put much more than a rain suit in the topcase. Then again, with the big storage space in the faux tank, not sure I'd opt for the topcase anyway. :dunno

    I'm 6'2" and I sat on one the other day. It was pretty damn comfy, actually. It also looks better in person. Of course, there's also this, as an option:

    It has a "real" tank though.

    Definitely not the same. But if you can get past the styling, the new VFR is a fantastic bike, IMO, and lightly used examples present a really good value in the sport-touring category.
