Honda VFR800 Interceptor

So Saturday I picked up the bike. It's a damn nice motorcycle. It's not immaculate as it was described but in defense of the guy who told me that, it was third hand info. I'm inclined to dwell on the negative but this is going to be a sweet ride and I'm looking forward to some quality time with this baby.

I don't have the title just yet so no plates or insurance. The previous owner paid it off the morning I picked it up so when he gets the title in the mail I can get it on the road. I'm not sure I've ever ridden anything with 108hp.  I didn't buy it for speed but it's nice to know it's got the uh...cojones to get out of the way when neccesary. Gotta go, more later.

Like I said, your going to love that bike. I am jealous of those hard bags, congrats.

Congrats!

Looking forward to seeing it in person this spring/summer.

Did you sit on it and make motorcycle noises yet? Or stand in the garage, stare and giggle?

Gymi - The bags definitely sealed the deal. I did a little looking for you and you're right it's tough to find anything for your bike.

Red- I have not sat on it and made motorcycle noises. I told someone I was going to, though. I did however, stand in the garage and stare at it with a big grin.

My wife always laughs when she comes out to the garage and I'm just standing in there staring at the Buell. =]

Gotta admire and appreciate your bike. Helps it run better.
