    Wow!
    Started this thread back in June. Been too busy with work to come back to it but glad I did today.
    Liking the good feelings out there for our old girls.
    Just done a big service on mine and she's running like a treat and I can't keep off it.

    Cheers Cyclone

    I hear that owning an older VF is good for marriages because you end up taking out all your agressions cursing at your bike instead of your wife/husband.

    My wife will only ride on two bikes. My 78 Triumph Boneville and my 83 VF750F. The typical sportbike gynecological position is not for her ;)

    I don't have a VF anymore , I have owned two of them and I liked them both, I have also owned two 86 vfr700's one which I currently still have and ride almost daily...I love the Vfour sound. that's what gets me

    My VF History

    The 1983 VF750F was the first brand new bike I purchased. I did like it and had little problems and none with the oil starving that some had. But then, the VFR750F was introduced and I HAD to have one. Bought her new, put 50K miles before my kids came and the toys went bye-bye. When they started driving, I found the current VFR I have and nursed her back to wonderful condition. I feel it is just as competitive now against riders younger than my bike with newer rides. The classic RWB is still eye candy, pumps adrenaline, is paid for and very reliable. That was a great time in my life BC (before children).
