One thing I have learned by traveling the world these past 6 years is the world is a much friendlier and safer place than the media protrays it to be. My girl friend and I plan to travel around Europe this summer proving that 99.9% of the people in the world are good, honest and friendly people. Our bike for Europe will be this - a Honda VFR800. I have always wanted one - the one with the gear driven cams. It will be sporty for the Alps and the Autobahn but comfortable enough to ride two up all around Europe. Plus you can pick them up fairly cheap around Europe. This next chapter starts now.
