    I'll have my daughter take better pics than I was able to do but here is a video of the bike if anyone is interested or cares to share with another who might be looking. The VFR is 100% an apex machine that is remarkably versatile. Seling as my wife gave up riding anything other than a scooter and I won't be doing any distance riding anymore. Honda luggage is included, The Corbin seat does not convey with the bike but willing to negotiate. Stock seat will ship the bike. Price is negotiable. I am very realistic and will accept any reasonable offer. Better pics to come. We're having a party here on Saturday so we'll be busy probably until Sunday.
    Title   Clear (need to get paper copy)
    Year   2016
    Color   Black
    Mileage   15100
    Warranty   Yes, aftermarket, ~1 year remaining
    Seat   Stock, but I have a Corbin I can throw in for the right offer
    Grips   Heated, Honda
    Top Case   Honda, Silver, Mounting plate installed
    Panniers   Honda, some scuffs, not terrible at all
    Case Keys   One Key Cylinders installed
    Center stand   Yes, Honda
    Suspension, Rear   Hyperpro Fully Adjustable, remote, Seperator, 3000 Miles, one free rebuild available from Hyperpro
    Suspension, Front   Hyperpro Springs, Fluid changed @12000 Mi @ Sunsports
    Tires   Dunlop Road Smart III, 1750 miles
    Crash Protection   Honda Light Bar
    Auxilliary Lighting   PIAA, 3", Switched
    Hand Guards   Honda OEM, New
    Brakes   ~ 12000 Mi. replaced (By Honda @ Susnsports)
    Battery   New Yuasa
    Dropped?   Yes, once. Stop sign on my 2nd day of owning it, at stop sign, No damage other than a scuff to the light bar (desperately slowed the fall!)
    Damage or defect   Remarkably clean. I did snap the front right Turn signal body (slipped when detailing it). I have the part ordered. If I receive it and have time to install it will be repaired. Part comes with regardless. Minor rub on rear handrail from bag straps.
    Muffler   OEM but only 4000 miles on it. The original had a stone dent that drove me crazy.
    Maintenance   Meticulously maintained, Motul oil, probably due for an air cleaner (which I have). If the TS gets here in time I will replace the air filter if/when I replace it.

    Sad to hear you're leaving team Crosstourer! Any idea on what bike you might want to purchase next, or are you somewhat retiring?

    Thanks Ron.  I love this bike, but Elane quit riding and she is not going back which I thought for sure would be temporary.  Right after her decision she had a neck injury so physically it would be unwise for her to ride anyhow (permanent injury).  So I am looking at a maxi scooter (Yamaha Xmax) and the NC750X.  I might be getting both.

    Understandable! I must admit, I myself am looking at a lighter bike aswell. I planned on more longer trips two-up, but Laura, my fiancee, is pregnant and we won't be doing those things for a while. Im currently using the bike as a commuter atm, which is killing the fun (too heavy, too slow). Although this bike is superb, it's too much for me. Laura uses the car, but now with a child on the way, I might have to get myself a second one, and I can't have two cars and two bikes, so choices have to be made.

     I'm also focussing more on offroading, and while this bike is capable, it's just tóó damn heavy. I'm looking at the T7 or a used Triumph 800, for all my daily commute and weekend warrior riding. In the mean time, I have a Italy/Austria trip ahead this summer. I'll probably sell or turn in the bike in at a dealer next year!

    The new 750X is smokingly good-looking, but they lowered the bike even more, so probably not for me (6.2)

    Agreed on the lowered seat height.  I like the ride by wire and some of the tech they added.  I'm 6 02 also with a 34 inch inseam.   But, there is a respected vlogger who, a 6 02 tall, reviewed the new 750 and says though he is high standing over the bike, the riding ergos work well for taller riders.  There are some 18s NOS available really cheap right now and the seat height has the extra 1.5 inches.  They are also on the list.  The gearing changes on 1-3 on the new 750X hit the mark according to every EU review I have seen so that part is promising.  I'm not going to order it without sitting on it though.

    Hmm, interesting! I really thought Honda sort of tried to get rid of us tall riders lol. I haven't had the chance to go to the Honda dealer. I hope the bike has some more juice than the previous models. I also have my eyes out for a T7 which suits our build very well, and has more torque/hp.

    I read a review on it.  I did not know it was here already.   Supposed to be like the NC in that it is really easy ride and good for whatever you want it to do.
