    Hello all, I just pulled the trigger on an “in crate” 2017 VFR1200X leftover from a high volume dealer 400 miles away. They are adding bags, skid plates and lasers to the front end. I’ll explained below.
    Background: I’m old as dirt and have owned motorcycles since I was 13. The vast majority were Honda’s. I’m a Honda guy thru & thru. Cars (NSX, CRZ)  Motos, scooters, lawn mowers & generators. I just parted with my ST1300A after a 16 year love affair. This is a tough breakup. Prior to that I had 2 track ready RC51’s, an 02 VFR800 and too many dirt bikes including my first love; CR125 Elsinore that I waited impatiently for 8 months on the wait list while all my buddies were busy riding their Suzuki’s and Yamahas. An eternity for a 14 year old boy. 48 years later, I’m retiring and bugging out to Baja while I still can. I’m planning on decking this bike out and riding it to Tierra Del Fuego and back next year. Looking forward to tapping into this  knowledge base and swapping stories. Cheers - Roberto

    Balmy indeed. I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting Soichiro Honda but I am a heavy investor/end user 😉🏍
