    Saw another red 5th-gen on I-24 West at about 8:30 AM in Nashville, TN today. Actually freaked out and raced home because it was right by the exit to my neighborhood and I thought someone had stolen mine!

    This morning around 8am I saw a nice looking 5th gen white VFR800 with topbox on Sylvan Ave (9W) in Englewood Cliffs, NJ heading north. He turned right onto E. Palisade Ave as I was waiting to turn left onto the same road. Looked like he was heading towards the Palisades Parkway or the local Henry Hudson Drive that I was coming back from. Weather was nice for a morning ride!

    Saw a silver 5th gen on the Florida Atlantic University campus in Boca Raton, FL. I parked my white 3rd gen right next to it. Every once and a while I'll see a 5th gen RWB rolling around town

    For some of you older folk, I saw a blue VFR, and said that he used to be on here know as JimBobVFR, back when this was just a bulletin board.

    I wonder whats the brand name of that trailer hitch motorcycle hauler. The ones Ive seen and done research on are only good to 500 lbs. I personnally wouldnt risk my bike with only 10 #s of a safety margin.

    Anywho..... 1200 this morning on the beltway 8 feeder getting on I 10.

    Saw a Black 3rd gen today around 3:30pm in Modesto, CA. You were going towards Oakdale Rd on Briggsmore Ave. I was going opposite direction on a tempest grey Hawk GT.

    I know there are a few VFR's in Modesto. I occasionally see a dark( matte black ??) 6th gen vfr on Sylvan ave near the Post Office(hudson station).

    I normally riding the hawk gt or cb-1 for errands around town. The viffer gets woken up only when I need to get out of town or when I feel the desperate need for some V4 growl @ 7k rpm. Ahh, I am feeling it now....

    Saw what I think is the same red 6th gen that I see all the time up in Savanna, IL yesterday (10/7/2012) in front of the iron horse cafe (The Horse). Small museum there. I don't think I've ever seen him on the bike...

    Dark silver, maybe grey 6th gen. I belive your tag was VFRING. Spotted ya and caught up to ya @ East Gude and Research Blvd around 1200. You were two up and your pillion had what looked like pig ears and a tail on her helmet. I pulled up beside you in a blue Nissan, gave you thumbs up and showed you my 6th gen patch and Honda wing patch. Hope yall had a good ride man, nice day out for sure!!
