    Just thought I'd say howdy from the UK. Looks like I may be the proud owner of a Silver '04 soon. I'm sure I'll be looking to everyone for help occasionally.

    New to VFRs, not new to riding. I've had everything from TM250 enduro machines to a K7 GSXR 1000, Yamaha Fazer S2, etc.

    I commute most days, rain or shine so the bike is about to get a proper workout. LOL.

    AFAIK it's stock. I'm buying it from the original dealer that sold it to the single owner who's kept it garaged since he bought it. It's perfect. Looks like it's never been ridden in the rain at all.

    I *suspect* that the original owner may have done some sort of airbox mod because it's much smoother on the throttle than any of the other VFRs I've test ridden so far. Even the guy at the dealership agreed that it seemed particularly smooth. When I took it for a test ride there was a massive steering wobble so I've go them doing a full service and fixing that issue before I actually pay for it. I'm testing it again this weekend so we'll see how it is then.
