Are you healed up ?
What year is your VFR ?
Not quite yet--I've being getting acupuncture and started chiropractic work. Still headaches, back/neck pain, but the dizziness and cognitive disruption is abating.
The VFR is a '98...but it was left to me by my dad when he passed away a couple of years ago, so I don't use it for riding around town. Great bike, though--smooth, good suspension for the budget, power's fine, surprisingly nimble given its bulk, great engine, and reliable. Not so hot for 2-up riding, though, and heavy.
I'm planning on riding a 919 across the country next year. I've ridden as far as Montana and back on the VFR, and even with Helibars, the position is too much crouch for me--the upright naked posture is perfect for long distances.
Wish we were closer, Ripper, I'd be able to help you out! Good luck getting back on your feet as a family.
