    Thanks for the add. I currently have a Suzuki C50, but am seriously looking at getting a VFR1200X. I know that these forums are the best place to learn so I signed up. Seeing some great. Prices on VFR1200s lately, it just seems like a lot of bike for the money.

    Good luck on making a decision.  It really seems that the only complaints about the bike are suspension and seat, and those concerns are completely subjective with some loving and some hating either.  I did not hate either but decided to upgrade both.  This is really one of the most versatile bikes that you could own or ride.  And, it is a rider's bike...commuter to transcontinental. As a matter of fact, one of our members just returned from an around the world trip on the CT with no problems at all other than an air filter ( if I recall correctly) clogging but was due to environmental conditions.  Parking lot u-turns take practice to develop muscle memory.  Other than that, one of the easiest and most forgiving machines to ride on the road.

    And be careful with 4th 5th and 6th gears, they will get you in big trouble with the State Troopers.  :008:
