    Yup that's my 03. I recall seeing a white VFR at Potwin and thought about reporting it here but slipped my mind.
    I think I've only done the Potwin run a couple of times, mostly when I miss the Cassoday run.
    We (a friend who rides a Bandit) left Potwin and rode to Council Grove that day...nice ride, too much wind.

    I spotted a beautiful 5th gen literally in the parking lot across from my office as I was walking to my bike. I heard the bike start and thought to myself, "That sounds like GDC's, WTF?!" Looked around and saw it pull out onto the main road. Before I could flag him down he was gone. I have only seen 1 other 5th gen in the Dayton OH region and that was mello dude. This was definitely not him though. Looked a lot younger than either him or myself.

    So if anyone on here is a Dayton native, shott me a PM!

    I saw a RWB with white wheels and RWB hard luggage in Elizabethton, TN on 7-17-17 about 3:30 pm. I was in a tractor-trailer and couldn't quite keep up with him in all the traffic.

    The riding out that way is lovely!
    The wind not so much...

    Great to see you saw the post!!
    I've only made one Cassoday and one Potwin. I LOVE going out to Stearman in Benton, but it's been a while.

    I try to do all of the toy runs when I can come the season, which can be awkward because I'm usually the only sport moto, let alone VFR.

    PM me if you'd like to meet up for any of the rides or just to ride! Would be great to meet you!!

    And if you feel, sign up to be a volunteer for the VFR rescue!

    Earlier this evening (think it was around 2000 hours give or take 15-30 min), saw a red VFR (think it was a 5th gen?) in the back of a pick up truck (think it was a gray Toyota Tacoma?) near San Francisco airport. I was northbound on the 101 and saw it off to my right - it was already splitting off on another highway/road and I didn't have a chance to take a picture.

    Saw this 1994 VFR in Lewiston, Idaho when I rode through last month. Parked next to it at the hotel, figuring cars would be less likely to hit 2 red bikes than one. (Mine's a 2014, on the left here.)

    Saw a nice looking 6th Gen in the fastest color (Red), heading towards Guelph on Maryhill/Marden Rd yesterday at 4:10PM. I was heading in the opposite direction on mine.

    Doodah (Wichita, KS) heading south on Tyler Road near 13th Street

    You have yourself a beautiful RWB VFR.

    Seeing more VFRs in the area. May be time to get a Kansas area ride going.

    Saw a shiny red 4th or 5th Gen on Speedvale Rd in Guelph at 12:00. I was not on mine unfortunately, since I'm still waiting for my non crushed fender.

    Spotted an '07 RWB on Anastasia Island, Florida, today just before noon - it had just crossed the Bridge of Lions / A1A from St. Augustine - looked great!

    Pulled up beside a nice black 6th Gen yesterday at 4 pm coming into Guelph on Eramosa/hwy 24 at Victoria road.
    I said "Nice bike" he replied with the same then we rode to downtown before parting ways.
