mine "was" prettier but yours is just as sweet if not sweeter.
my other ride is a Honda CB1. it's got the sweet sounding gear-driven cams....Oh that "whiz-whirl" jet turbine sound it makes at 10K rpm.
sweet.....I'm sure the gear-driven cam VFRs were nice.
Mine, did indeed have V-tech which I think Honda screwed it with that design. And it was horribly abrupt on the throttle....as I stated.."ALL ON" or "ALL OFF".
My cousin, on the other hand owned it for 14 years. He loved that bike......LOVED it.
He never wanted to part with it. Said it did everything well...I believed him, just was not the bike for me.
He gave me a good deal on it.
I got it for $3K with 14K miles....never dropped.
I almost had it sold for $4500 but alas, I got greedy and wanted $5K for it and well....that's another story.
Never the less, it did eventually get sold and I turned around that same day, as fate would have it, and there was this nice, shinny 919 waiting for me. It was basically a trade for trade.
Bought the 919 for $3k, sold the VFR for $3K....so go figure.
