I remember motorcycle shopping back in 01. There was a VFR, and a 929RR on the floor. The VFR weighed more, had a smaller engine, and was $1000 more! With the 929 you got a beautiful titanium exhaust that the heat would turn pretty colors, and never rust. And then theres the VFR..... it got soft, painted steel, that was guarenteed to look like junk by the time you got home with it. I never under stood why the VFR was always considered the superior quality motorcycle.
