Thought I’d make a splash here and announce myself as the site’s newest member. I’ve been in love with the 3rd-6th gen VFR’s for years now (it really all started after my first time seeing the RC30) but life, kids, career have been in the way, so have never owned one. That was until I met the beautifuland sporty black girl pictured above with just 2,300 miles on her. Original owner, bone stock, right down to the original tires. Spent most of her life inside the house in the guy’s “bike room.” I knew instantly she was the one for me and I just had to have her. Picking her up this coming weekend! As for my riding history, I’ve been twisting the throttle since 4 years old, competed in a LOT of Trials growing up, raced the woods/desert here and there, and in the past decade have discovered the absolute magic of riding street. My father handed down the bike addiction; his current collection is 30-strong, from classic BSA, Norton, Triumph and Bultaco bikes to modern Enfield, Buell, Ducati and Husky mounts. In general, I just love bikes new and old (sans most cruiser mounts, read: Harley). I am excited to begin the love affair with my new “Black Beauty!” I look forward to interacting with this group as well. Do you guys ever organize West Coast gathers/rides?
