    So I just picked up another motorcycle to join my 93 CBR600 F2. I bought a 94 VFR750. I've had it for a couple of days now and my impressions so far are this:

    Likes:
    Awesome V-4 gear whine
    Excellent ergonomics
    Ability to take my g-friend with me
    Good low end grunt

    Dislikes:
    It's about 150lbs heavier than my F2
    Annoying head shake (common on VFRs)
    Not as nimble as the F2

    Overall I really like the bike. I think I'll get used to the extra bulk of the bike. My F2 is lighter than stoock as it was totally stripped for track usage and then "converted" back to street legal trim. It's definitely a razor blade while the Interceptor is more of a chefs knife.

    Specs on the Interceptor:
    1994 Honda VFR 750
    21k Miles
    Red in color (duh)
    Fairly new Dunlop tires (207s)
    SuperTrap slip on Exhaust
    Marsee Pack
    1 tooth Shorter Gear

    Here are some pics:

    Here's a picture of my F2. Please note that I do not ride with numbers on the street. This is the bike in "track guise":

    And one last thing I had to whore... I got a new lid. Bought a Arai Haga replica (Rx-7RR4). Never had such a nice helmet before... here is a pic:

    Just wanted to share!

    Hey man, I just realized something: I'm dirt poor and I wish I could afford ONE of your two bikes! Damn student loans! :sadwavey:

    Congrats on a nice bike, they make great long haul bikes. My bro used to have an '84 VF1000F Interceptor and I used to steal it all the time. It ran great and had a ton of torque, which makes it that much more fun on the highway and while riding two up.

    Nothing beats the old GF's-helmet-banging-into-the-back-of-yours when you're shifting/revving the shat out of a peaky engine to make some power! Won't have to worry about any of that with the nice V-4, smoooooooth power.

    Its no doubt that Honda makes the best bikes in the world. I'm selling my freinds 83 VF1100C V65 Magna. Its got a butter smooth V4 with more torque off the line than my gsxr1000. It'll literally yank the wheel off the ground right off idle. Honda is awsome, and the V4 is definently one of their best designs.

    Id suggest you get a steering dampner before you tank slap into a highside.
