    That was me. Nice to have met you. Maybe I'll see you around again.

    I'll probably be heading to Summit Point again, track riding is a ton of fun! The only thing that gets me is that I'm a bit on the slow side since I'm pretty inexperienced on the track, makes me feel like I'm holding everyone up. Hopefully I'll improve as I get more track time in.

    The VFR did great. It's totally stock except for the tires, which are PR2s. At first I was a little worried since they were sport-touring tires, but the coaches assured me that a rider could probably ride up to the faster end of the intermediate group before ST tires became an issue. Still not 100% confident, but I'll try to trust their advice.

    On a side note, I saw another red 5th gen on route 340 in Front Royal as I was heading up to Skyline drive on May 15th. The guy seemed really excited to see another VFR and pointed at my bike enthusiastically as he passed by me.

    Does anyone know of the guy in Yeovil, England who rides a custom VFR750 1st/2nd Gen, customised with VFR800 front fairing and a very loud 4-Pipe exhaust system? It's a bit of a long shot but it is the coolest bike ever, like something out of the Mad Max films!

    spotted a red '04 on 840 hitting 24 East to Murfreesboro TN. I was the guy on the RC 51. I thought you were my roommate taking my '04 on a joy ride!

    At 8 am Today on Speedway Road in Madison, WI my sled was followed by a Pearl White G6. OEM hard panniers, GIVI matte black top box, full gear including a day-glo orange & black jacket.


    EDIT:

    And . . . as I was driving back home today at 5 pm on Speedway Road in Madison, WI my sled was again followed by the same Pearl White G6. :smile:

    At least it's still operational. About two years ago I got the idea to get back a '90 CBR1000f I'd sold in '96, only to find that in '04 an 18yr old squid had put her through someone's living rm doing 70 in a 25...
