GR8VFR, So you got rid of it and got a VFR? VFR's are great machines too. I love my CBR1000. I keep thinking that I might keep it when I get a new bike... there's just something special about it. I want a 1300cc CBR1100xx with world beating power, aluminum frame, dual headlights and fuel injection. Everything the 1000 doesn't have. If Honda doesn't step up, the new ZX-12R is SURE LOOKING GOOD!
