Any other Kiwis out there?
yes there are other kiwis out here , im in auckland , just thinking about doing the vfr thing , they seem such a cool all rounder but im still a little concerned about the weight thing ......what do you think ????
Doesnt feel heavy
It actually feels quite light and nimble - and 108hp is nothing to be ashamed of.
Plenty of torque.
Its the right bike for me. Im planning to do a few miles.
If your after a rocketship - and maximum time in seat of 1 hour or so - try an R6 or CBR600 or GSXR600 or any of the same in the 1 litre league.
If you wanna do some miles - VFR is your bike.

Hey Swoop, you need your avatar on the back of the VFR when dicing with the cagers.:scared:
He he! A good idea. It might also divert them from looking at the plate if I have had to perform a mirrorectomy on their cage!:lever:
I'm in Katikati (30K's north of Tauranga for those of you geographically challenged). Just got a 99 5th Gen (red) from GP Honda in the Mount. Also got 2 more waiting in the US to collect next year after our 2007 trip. Got the VFR bug real bad.
Yip. A Kiwi too. Presently located in Vancouver Canada.
And another Kiwi.
I live 25ks from Tauranga, bay of plenty.I have a 700 interceptor.Brought one new in 87 and 6 months ago aquired a 1 owner copy in mint condition from the same year. Excellent fun around the Rotorua lakes and the winding roads around where I live.Love it.
""Have fun and stay happy.""
And yet another Kiwi.
Hastings, Hawkes' Bay
Have recently purchased a 2006 VFR - loving it!
I'm also in Hastings. I have a blue 05.
Hi Mr X have to touch base some time, like to hear your views
on the VFR
Give me a bell on 021 270 3466 sometime. I have only had the bike for a month, so my views won't be much more informed than yours though.
hi well i have just traded my firestorm on a new vfr . so cool and smooth .should have had one years ago . weather protection is great .think honda make the best bikes .
I just joined the site. as I just got a NC24. its a sweet bike. im in east auckland
Hi all, another Kiwi... been in Perth since 2002 but wanting to come "home". Ride a red 2002 VFR 800 ... the first thing we bought when we got here! Originally from Tauranga where I had a CBX 750 Bol d'Or for 16 years!
Hi all, just joined the site. Getting my 700 running after 5 years. Just in time for ....winter...doh!!
hi, just joined recently and am quite new to bikes. have an 1989nc24. alittle rough but rides like a champ.am in ngaruawahia, just north of hamilton.
:smile: I am an Aucklander, an older Kiwi and I have taken delivery of the VFR06
model, and I am busy sorting out a few teething problems to make the riding
easier , I am short in the leg so I am sorting out ride heights and softening suspension to my 63Kg weight.
I like the bike - but I am concerned about the snatchy throttle at low speed
which I am searching for the cure.....Help would be appreciated.
Your question is better asked in one of the technical forums. From memory the things you can try are:
Adjust throtle cable
disable pair valves
disable oxygen sensors
Also as you ride it a bit longer, it settles down.
