In the late 80's early 90's, Honda made a white VFR that looked really sharp. My 1990 CBR is mostly white, but it and the white wheels are a pain to keep clean. I don't clean the rear wheel very often as can be seen in my avitar.

I had an 03 RED one. Their pretty cool with the V-Tec and they handle pretty well too! I ran Diablo's on mine and didn't have any chicken strips, if that tells you something. Also had exhaust on it and some cagers would pull up at a light and tell me it sounded like a Nascar when I came by them.:2cents:

I agree, but what would be even cooler would be a retro VFR 1000 like Honda had in the late 80's. Even better, it should be a VFR 1300.
ooooooooooh! My first "real" sportbike (or so I thought so) the 1989-90" Hurricane in Pearl Glow White! I loved that bike! My Dad always wanted me to love riding the way he did. It worked! Thanks Dad! :dthumb:

I have always loved and respected the VFR's for what they are. Not a race replica but a good rider could show a few of them up with one. Pulse, still be able to walk after a 3 to 500 mile day.
