    Welcome and lets us know what you have on the way.

    Oops I didn't see your previous post about a key for a 2002. Good luck with those strange keys over there.

    Looks familiar, my previous VFR was a silver 2003.

    Very nice !

    Looks like the previous owner has already added a good few extras to a bike which was very well equipped to start with including ABS and linked brakes. That is definitely not a stock screen - I looks like a mirror finish tinted double bubble screen and those tip over bungs can be a useful add on as these bikes have a bit of a reputation for taking an unplanned nap...

    I like the idea of a gear indicator - I have more than once been looking for that mythical 7th gear... however you may also want to think about adding at least a voltmeter as the charging system is the achillees heel on these bikes - or just swap out that crap RR with a decent Shindengen RR which is what Honda really should have fitted...

    Have fun with the bike and Take Care ATGATT
