Stopped at Reynolds Motorsports in Buxton, Maine the other day and sat on this bike while making varoom, varoom noises. Compared to my old Goldwing this seemed like a toy it was so little and light. I've done my due diligence on the dual clutch transmission and have a line on an aftermarket electronic cruise control. There is a pretty good probability when my cast comes off later this week I'll try to get a test ride. For those not in the know, the VFR1200 offers the world's first dual clutch transmission on a motorcycle. Due to the leading edge technology and somewhat convoluted marketing by Honda, this $17,000 shaft drive, ABS equipped, 145 hp V-4 can be had for about $4,000 under MSRP. Not a bad deal.
