Hey, not trying to hijack this thread but i see you have a vfr800 and a cbr600. How do the two compare power wise? I ride a vfr also and am trying to decide between a 600 of some sort, a gsxr 750 and a ducati 848 as a second bike.
Ask not trying to thread jack, but I owned a 2005 VFR800 and the power was pretty much the same as the 600s. I raced a few 600s and beat them but not by much. Mine had VTEC and when it kicked in it felt like NOs and I would pull ahead. Would not compete with a 1000cc. But was a great bike! It was heavier then a 600 but was easier to put down miles and any 600 out there. I was for sure a touring bike.

Beautiful and of course this can also be tweaked a bit to be a little different. Use anodized fasteners to highlight.
