I know I can't do better than this. Believe it or not, she has about 28k on her, and is stock!! The only things I've done is the VFRness and reg/rec upgrade, as recommended by the folks on the VFR owners' board. She runs like a top and is typical Honda smooth. I keep browsing the online stores and boards for stuff to do to her but when I ride her, she is perfect the way she sits right now. The only thing I've seriously considered is Delkevic makes a stainless header (so does Motad but more expensive) or possibly having the stock headers jet coated. There are a few chips and superficial scratches here and there, a bit of fade but, like I tell my wife, it actually gives me more peace of mind when I throw the saddlebags and tank bag on her because I'm not as anal about the finish as I am with my still pristine paint on the 919 and VTX1800. The damn bike just works. It's never going to worth big coin but, that's not why I own it, nor why I would keep it. I rode it last week and I still pull into the garage shaking my head at how freakin well Honda did in putting this bike together. It's certainly a smile factory.
Got it whittled down to a sensible two bikes.
