My Bike

4/13/02 - picking up the new bike
Took the Concours into Motorsports Honda in Wichita, KS for a bit of a noise from the motor. Turned out I had wasted the valve train. Scored cams, rocker arms, and a couple valves at 0 clearance. Wasted. Thus, I started looking for a cheap replacement. Well, the VFR they had wasn't cheap, but it sure was nice. 6,086 miles, one owner, pristine. $6,000 later, I was the owner of a 1997 VFR. Picked it up April 13th, rode it for a week, blew the R/R and battery, got a new R/R from Honda of Milpitas and just been riding.
