    I met a younger guy around then with a red 5th gen not far from there parked on Silvercreek at the nofrills. Chatted with him for a bit, told him all about the site. Still waiting for him to show up and say Hi...

    Wow, how cool. Went to our local got every nut and bolt you could ask for store, and what's in the parking lot, a very clean 6th gen, an 08 mind you looking like new spotless. Figure I'd go inside and find the one thats riding this carrying a helmet, nope, so ask the clerk if he happen to know who's bike, it was his. He just bought it, only 800 miles on it. Dark gray or silver with factory side bags, way cool. So we chatted a bit and find out it's his first real street bike, he's off a DS650 Suzuki. hes only put on a few miles on the VFR, still getting use to it, I let him know he could bring it on over we'll set up the suspension, as he thought it was pretty soft. check those 8 year old tires too he just change the oil last night he says it was the first time too Crazy, who does that, buys a cool bike then parks it for 7+ years, just Nutz. He's a pretty happy camper, then also suggested he visit this fine establishment for questions , we'll see. So there ya have it, surprised, there are VFRs in the area. even though it's a 6th gen ;) speaking of that, he didn't know about 5th gens, or the rest of the what there was with VFRs, he just liked the bike for the price.

    3 sightings in Pittsburgh.

    4th Gen (Red): Parked on Phiilips Av all the time. Seen the rider once late at night around 10. Good condition for it's age.
    6th Gen (Red): Seen on Carson Avenue around 6pm a few times. This guy probably rides it to work.
    6th Gen (Red): RT51 near Century 3 mall.

    Show yourself!! ;)

    Wichita, KS
    You were Westbound on 2-35 nearing the Hutchinson exit at 1:00 pm. Classic red and boy were you loaded down with a ton of camo gear.
    I was headed east to Cycle Gear to exchange my riding pants that broke.

    Spotted a white 8th gen headed north on Douglas Avenue near Orlando earlier tonight - my first ever 8th gen spotting in the wild. The bike definitely had some sort of aftermarket exhaust but I only saw the left side of it so not sure what it was - very nice rumble as it passed by!

    There's a guy who lives maybe a half mile from me (on Little Mack just north of 10 mile here in SCS, MI) with a very nice 3rd gen, red with a white 8 spoke rear. Wonder if it's anyone on here...

    Ran into a young man on a red 99 at Publix in Decatur, Alabama. Said his regular ride is a BMW that's having some electrical problems. Said he bought this one a couple months ago, and has dropped it on the left side once, but it runs like a top.

    Saw these motos pull up at the QT in town.
    One '96 VFR, the other a Gixxer.
    The VFR is used for stunting, power wheelies and the like. The guy said he wants to do a street fighter look and buy a new VFR in the future.
    His buddy wanted to ride today, so he zip tied a flashlight to the front.

    Saw a black '96 near the vendor area at the Skip Barber Vintage races and show today. Seemed kinda rare since I never saw another VFR for the rest of the day.

    While I was waiting to turn left at the light into my neighborhood, another 6 Gen approached the light from the opposite direction. He turned right, with a friendly wave, just as as I was turning left behind him and saw that he was on an 07 RWB just like mine! I rode behind him for a few seconds before I had to turn again, and saw that he had aftermarket cans on it, but I don't know what kind. Shout out if you're on the forum in Decatur Alabama, fellow Anniversary rider!

    Saw two of you in Schweyey Rd in Chilliwack on Sunday. Schweyey turns into Wolf Road after it leaves the Reserve. Both were 6th gens, one grey and one ketchup coloured.

    Saw your 2003 in Potwin, Kansas this morning. Same county indicated on your tag as mine.

    I was riding black 2006 Fireblade and my friend was riding my pearl white 2006 Viffer. Never found you. When I returned from wandering around you and moto were gone.

    I really need to carry pen and paper for these times I see others around. Maybe make some business cards. Was very excited to see if you were a member here and if not, invite you to join! Hope you had an amazing ride![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Met another Wichita VFR rider yesterday at Cycle Gear here in town.

    Greg didn't have his moto here, but showed me photos of his red 2004.

    Directed him here so if he shows, maybe he'll post up.

    Never officially posted:

    Two reds seen parked in Seward, AK from Eastern Canada. Had to turn around to meet these 6th gen riders! After all, I hadn't seen a Viffer on the road since R3 in Cali.

    Ended up riding with Jason and Rakesh for several days from Tok, AK to Edmonton, AB.

    We on Viffers are AWESOME!

    Here are the beauties in the Yukon:
