ME? giving us old guys a bad rep? You should talk :o (riding that black/fast mistress)...You know the saying, guns don't kill, it's the person holding it. :rolleyes: Bikes don't cause you to get tickets (well, that remains to be seen) it's the person that twists the wrist, NOT? :lol: :P

Dang...just...DANG.

Pretty envious here in Wheaton.

You been over to Arky yet? How does it perform on AR roads?

Congrats petey. :clapping:


Wheatie, yes, I bought the bike in Springdale, AR and took the long/twisty way home. She handles and performs as, or beyond
I expected. However, I took it easy...new to me bike and still not broke in. :)

Nice looking scoot, Petey! I was over at a local Honda dealer a couple of weeks ago and they had one in the showroom. "Interesting" looking.

So, what're ya bringing to NERDS? The VFR or the Versys???

And when's the VFR going to Alaska? I haven't seen any pictures or anything so I think you've never been there. :assassin:


Hi Geek
Probably not the VFR. Right now I'm not planing to invest in hard bags for it ($1400 list option) Therefor, it will be a different bike. Maybe the Versys, but who knows.... :unknw:

The trip to Alaska? Been there twice and not just to Hyder... :P

Nice bike Petey...I thought you were going the German route there for a bit. I want a red K1300S so bad I can taste it.

No hardbags needed for petey...have you ever seen that guy pack? The guy is so efficient that he can pack everything in 3 ziplock sandwich bags. And he only uses 3 in case he stays an extra night.

I still can't get over how much the VFR and the CBR250R look alike.

When you posted this up Bungie I at first thought that you were intentionally trying to kick petey in the apple sacks, but I thought to myself that only our BikerGeek99 could be that muy Estupido!

But after going to Honda's website I also was shocked at just how much the two machines look alike, Honda certainly keeps the design elements identical all throughout the displacement classes!

$1400 Ouch!

Might want to give Twisted Throttle a shout Petey, this is the setup I use on the Ducati 848 if I want to travel.

The Bags Connection Blaze Sport Saddlebags feature durable YKK RC-Fuse zippers and are expandable from 14 to 21 liters per bag.

So Brother John, are you going to be able to keep up with him riding that red rascal? It was probably hard enough keeping Peter in sight when he was on his FJR, now it is going to be even tougher!

Thanks John, it's a great motorcycle. I was a little worried about the reach to the low handlebar, but I'm pleasantly surprised, not bad...I like it.

My brother just bought one of those a couple of weeks ago.
Last weekend he insisted I ride it. Well, what was I supposed to do, he is my brother. :D

He rode my FJR. He had ridden it before but had forgotten what it was like. He had many great things to say about the FJR. 'Course we already knew all that. :yahoo:


Gotta admit, Screwball, your brother's new Honda was one sweet looking ride. Would have liked to see a little more windshield, but... to each - his own. Enjoyed riding up to Daytona with you and Jim.

Hell Don, I couldn't keep up with Petey on his Versys. But he is considerate of some of us old guys and slows down when the roads straighten out so we can catch up.
