7. Reflection from etched windshield momentarily blinded him.

6. The espresso machine just finished.

5. Was actually asleep when other rider waved.

4. Was in a three-way conference call with stockbroker and
accessories dealer.

3. Was distracted by odd shaped blip on radar screen.

2. Was simultaneously adjusting the air suspension, seat height, programmable CD player, seat temperature and satellite navigation system.

1. Couldn't find the "auto wave back" button on dashboard.

I have wanted one for years. I also want a 1983 Honda VFR1000R.

Either are breathtaking examples of a day in which no chemical could replace the feeling of twisting the throttle.
Vrrrrrrrrrraaap. Veeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrr...

100? 1000 my brother! Red White and Blue baby! Can you say Intercepter? I have never ridden the CBX but I remember the magazine I had as a kid with it standing on one wheel and all of that chrome!

Assuming you mean VF1000R, good ones just don't exist anymore. I looked for one for years back in the 90s and there were just no good ones left. That thing was a pig anyway.

The bike I would pay top $ for would be an absolutely mint condition mid 80s Interceptor 500, but those don't exist either. Sport bike riders tend to actually ride their bikes.

They do exist. I have ridden a VF 700 F and a VF 500 F in the last year. The VF (I'm sorry) 1000r is much more rare. It was not a pig as you suugest IMO. If you have ever dragged a knee as I did twenty some years ago you might agree. If you have twisted the throttle full while heading up an up hill double jump on a dirt bike you might also understand. There are lots of these bikes aroud, you just have to take off the blinders to see them. I owned a VF500F as an 18 year old. My hard on still exists for that bike, it was so flickable.... Steve

I've spent my entire life (since I was 5) on bikes including 7 years dragging my knee around Sears Point and Laguna Seca at countless trackdays, and I've ridden all the Honda VF's, from the original Interceptor 500/750s and the the 1000R. By pig, I meant heavy, not slow. It was tall and heavy, especially compared to the sportbikes that quickly followed. By today's standards the VF1000R would be Rosie ODonnell fat.

By 'good ones', I meant low mileage and/or excellent condition bikes. VF1000Rs were generally thrashed and it is almost impossible to find one in great condition. I still keep my eye out for any of the old VFs for sale, hoping to one day stumble upon a pristine stored bike and I never see one. There are tons of crap condition ones out there. The only cool old Hondas that still turn up once and a while in showroom condition are the Nighthawk S's, which are a fun little bike as well. My brother had a red and black one when we were in college and I've always wanted one of those.
