This is my first review, so ill take this story all the way back to the beginning :)

I had never been into modern bikes when I was younger, more into the old retro types that I seen my dad riding (whooper dreams, cx, and still my wee fav the cm). But i decided to become a bike mechanic, and during my time I kept hearing of this VFR... the honda jewel. My lecturer always banged on about how when I got a shot of one id be hooked (tall words I thought).
To cut a long story short, the chance to buy one at a very reasonable price came up, so i took it ( it was nealy two hundred miles away though). it had no service history and 20k miles, but the guy assured me it was mint! I did all my checks on it, and took it for a test drive (my lecturer was right, the bike and I bonded straight away) the ride home was a blur, just one big long grin. We hit heavy rain and wind and the bike couldn't care less. The handling was a mixture of pure comfort and precision. the power range was shall we say addictive :) the fuel gauge never seemed to move (it has a gauge:D). the bike seemed to read my mind at corners and the engine tone was just pure music. I cant remember how long the trip home took, but I could have done double and still been ready for more (unlike the bike i tried previously, the back breaking cbr-400).
I cant give you official stats on this bike (V4, twin gear driven cams per cylinder, single sided swing arm, 4into 2 into 1 exhaust and a decent fuel tank capacity and boasts around 100bhp, also fitted was a rear hugger and scot oiler <--- excellent invention). This bike seemed to out perform all my mates in there cruisers and sports bikes on fuel and comfort ( 1 by 1 i'm converting them all to the the vfr). I have passed this bike over to another member of the family, but it has been with us for around eight years now (and i don't see him parting with it). In that time it has covered around 20k miles (16k were in first three years by me). And in this time it has had a battery, a reg/rec, and a fuel pump (apart from the usual servicing and wear and tear items). which all in all is pretty damn good. It has never let me down out on the road (always when left in the garage, don't think it likes being ignored haha). I bought the bike when I was 22 and it was cheap on insurance and running costs. If anyone out there is considering getting one DO IT, I gave mine away but still get the use of it, but for this summer i'm getting a newer model :D

In summary. this bike truly does everything. great for weekend blasts, heading out for a long tour or even as the commuting work horse. The running costs are excellent. two up riding, no prob. luggage and accessory options are available with a wide variety from many different manufacturers (eg kappa, givi, heppco & becker).
As long as you keep up to date with the servicing I don't see you having any real issues with one of these.

Go get a shot of one they are fantabulous, and i cant wait to hit Europe this summer with my next VFR
