    Saw a red 5th gen on I-40E outside of Lebanon, TN. I was on the 5th gen going the other direction, gave you a big wave.

    Ran across a White 6th gen in Grove City on Sunday while I was on my Black 6th gen. Looked clean, but I much prefer my Two Brothers exhaust over the stock one he was still rocking.

    Very cool!

    I saw a red 6th gen this morning heading east on Tangerine Road...a bit of road rash on the lower left fairing.

    Anyone?

    Just saw a Gen 6 black VFR800 on Wisconsin Ave, Bethesda, MD! Ripped off from a stop light and made me happy.

    Roomed next to a black '92 at the Deal's Gap Motorcycle Resort this past weekend, and had a lot of good convos with the rider of a silver '03 who I know is a member on here.

    Saw a red 5th gen (just like mine) coast to a stop on the shoulder of I-495 (capital beltway outer loop) west in md today. Hopefully all was well, I was on my 5th gen going the other way, I had to do a double take. Also, saw a yellow 5th gen with luggage cruising on 234 crossing sudley manor rd (in northern va) 2 weeks ago. That is all, seeing 2 5th gens in 2 weeks is pretty rare. Considering I've never seen one in person besides mine until I saw the yellow one.

    Frequently see an early 6th gen, Italian Red, with a black topcase outside Montefiore Medical Center (Moses) campus in the Bronx, NY.

    Excellent! That's good to hear, there are not enough female riders out there, particularly of proper bikes...

    I've not yet ever seen a girl riding a VFR. Triumphs, beemers, Kawasakis, even a beautiful old laverda, and of course endless crappy mopeds, but never a VFR. As evidenced by the gender bias of this site's membership I guess :unsure: Anyone happen to know how many gals are members here?

    Passed a red 5th gen whilst riding my own on thursday. Through the short twisty section of A38 dual carriageway before telegraph hill. Gave him a wave from the bar but was pushing 100 through the bends, so could do no more...

    Saw quite a few 6th gen vfr's at Deals' gap when I was there on 8/16. Pretty sure I saw just about every color they came in, except RWB... Definitely saw Red, White, Black, and Silver... (not including my own pearl black) Haven't gone through all my actioncam footage to verify yet though.

    Driving north on the I-5 in San Clemente around 11:30am yesterday, on the way to meet up with OOTV for his help with my wheels, when two 6th gen's lane split (safely) passed me - a red/maroon followed by a RWB. I was incredibly jealous seeing how I was in my car and traffic was horrendous.
