HAHAHA!!! Ok I can't stop laughing...good one! I bought my 98 last summer it had about 35000 on the odo and had been crashed at least twice. I have no idea how well or poorly it had been maintained and how many previous owners it had. I crashed her last September...(not my fault, other party was charged)...and she still gives me 200 miles between fill ups and runs like a dream. I have only changed oil and hydraulics, chain and sprockets, rear tire and threw in a K&N air filter. Otherwise bone stock. All VFR's are stunning machines to look at as well. Could it be the perfect bike?!??
