    I was riding on US-48, and saw a RWB 1986 interceptor. I followed for a while, then we stopped and met up. Ended up being a member on here.

    Just saying it was cool seeing another Interceptor.

    Black (and red?) 6G on Rt. 1 heading north near Princeton around noon today. Anyone?

    First one I've seen in a very long time.

    There's a red 6th gen on Killboy's site from the Dragon this past weekend. Rider in white.

    Anyone we know?

    That is Jeremy (Jeremy556) from VFRD Forums. He is from Marietta, GA. about 30 minutes away from where I live. I was supposed to go riding with him a few weeks ago but bad weather caused me to cancel. His form looks great in those pics.

    Why do I only see other VFR's when I'm in my cage!?

    So I live in Pocatello, ID...AKA the middle of nowhere in a very rural state, and the local Honda Dealer told me he hadn't seen many come in... That being said, I saw a 4th gen yesterday pulling into a gas station, and I was on my way to an appointment, or I would have pulled in and talked to him. (I'm not at all bashful...lol)

    A while back, I saw a red 6th gen, and since I was in the process of stripping and polishing my rear wheel, I was in my cage then too...ARGH!

    See a nice red 3-4 gen on the way to work every day, really should go ring his door bell.
    Lives in Jonstone park, Red Deer, Alberta and parks it on his front walk.

    I passed a red 5th gen on Rt 31 north of Oswego, IL on Sunday. High mount exhaust and his gal on the back. It was almost a twin of my bike - first 5th gen I've seen on the road!

    I saw a red 6th Gen parked outside the Kensington Pub at the Berkeley, CA border on Colusa Circle Wednesday at about 5:40pm. The bike looked "well used" :biggrin: anyone want to claim ownership?

    Saw a brand new looking 08 RWB with stock pipes and a guy with glasses riding it in Anderson, SC on Friday I believe it was at 1:30 or so on Hwy 81 heading into Anderson.

    Saw a yellow 4th or 5th gen (not that good with the older ones) today in Greenville, SC, he pulled off and left me for dead in the company minivan, and he still had stock pipes. Cleanest older bike I've seen in a while. He pulled into the local BMW/Ducati motorcycle place.

    Saw a red 4G in Reedsport, OR early Saturday morning toting two pretty happy riders despite the foggy weather. Waved as I turned off on 38 toward "The Sugar Shack" to snag doughnuts and coffee. Incidentally, if you find yourself in Reedsport with a doughnut craving, be sure to stop in. Nice folks and awesome baking.

    Spotted a silver 6th gen w/bags last night about 2200 sitting at a light heading west on Dorsey Rd (176) near BWI Airport.

    I was turning left off of Dorsey onto 170 toward Odenton with the Leo's screaming!

    WAASSUUUPP!

    I saw a 4th Gen Red and black

    I finally saw my first VFR that was not on a showroom floor. I was on East Washington St in Indianapolis near Flat Out Motorcycles, I was in my car and he was driving away from me on a side street.

    5:15 pm 8/26

    It was really cool to see one, could this be anyonw here?

    511 Twisties to Calabogie and Back

    Biggest ever sighting (for me). Riding north on the 511 twisties (near Ottawa), as I was in a tuck on a corner a swarm of Viffers rode by, waving. Well, maybe there were two or three, but the closing speed was probably 240 kph and they were by in a flash. I think the last one was a 6th gen with red and white faring colour mix. I might have been seeing things.

    If you're one of those Viffers and are reading this, please let us know where the swarm is from. I was on my black 06, yellow helmet, yellow/black/ white jacket.

    Cheers

    PS - 7 hours on the road today. Did the 511 twice. Best ride ever.
