Hi, My first VFR was a '76(?) 700 cc interceptor. This is my second VFR, a 2000 VFR800 (yellow), that I recently purchased in a city north of Atlanta, GA. I drove the VFR back to Tallahassee without long stops just gas and water. It was a great ride and very comfortable all the way home on Georgia's back roads. I was trying to decide between a VFR and a ZZR600, but I didn't think the ZZR would have been as comfortable as the VFR. At one time I own a ZZR1200, but on that bike if you made one stupid mistake it was a terminal decision. Fasted Bike I have ever own, it had 6-inch handlebar risers, comfortable but just to damm fast. The VFR is fast but manageable and has a good seating position. Hope to see y 'all on the road!
