Hi y'all! I've been away for a few years; had an affair with a VFR 1200. What a fabulous piece but not terribly comfortable for my old bones though I did do 4 500+ mile days in one week a few summers ago. But I realized I missed the comfort and convenience of the SW and frankly, the sheer power of the VFR was more than a little frightening. So I sold it and I'm back on an '09 SW. Glad to be back in the (comfortable) saddle!

Very sad to see DennisB has left the forum. Sad

Welcome back! Have you made any mods to your SW since you bought it?

Welcome back. I too left the my 2004 SW and after four years got a 2009 SW because of the comfort and ease of handling. Doing 500+ miles a day on any bike is quite a feat. The VFR 1200 must be a great ride.

All I've done to the new SW is add a Givi AirFlow. And I got a plate for my Givi trunk but they shipped me a Monolock and not a Monkey so I can't use my E52. Had to steal the E30 from my Elite 110 for now.

The VFR is a GREAT ride, if you never have to drop below 50 or so. It's a heavy back-breaker at low speed and it takes a furlong to do a u-turn. Happy to be back on a SW.

I have a 6th gen VFR which is a fine bike. Calling that 1200 a VFR was a mistake on Honda's part, they should have given it an entirely new designation. Isn't that 1200 motor coming here as the Cross Tourer?

Welcome back. I know the feeling, I gave up my Goldwing and a BMW K1100LT to go full time scootering. So much easier on arthritic knees to be able to stretch your legs out.
