I have had a few VFR's now 2005 VFR800 red 2007 VFR800 candy red x2 2010 VFR1200 x2 2015 VFR800 x1 2016 VFR1200 cross x1 2007 VFR800 anniversary. By far, the 6th gen is the best bike. Under seat exhaust, the stack dual headlights, the lines of the bike and just how it handles. I have also had OEM luggage, Givi and now SHAD. SHAD luggage is the best. Little L shaped mounting bracket, takes 5 mins to bolt on and away you go. My latest one is the Anniversary. Bought it in July 2018 with less that 1900 miles on it. Rode it from Phoenix AZ, back to Calgary Alberta. Bike has been good apart from when it died on me in September. Battery was toast. Now I am doing a minor service over the winter, ready for the spring. New battery, complete chain wash, sprockets and re-grease, oil and filter, air filter, tidy Scorpio alarm wiring up and a thorough clean. My plate on the bike is TSR2. Just Google it, if you don't know what it means.
