Rode a 2005 VFR-800a today at the honda demo days. That is the most fun, smooth and all around excellent street bike I've been on to date. The power delivery is incredibly smooth, and the noise it makes from 7G after V-tec kicks in...BWAAAAA! Words can't describe it, but VFR owners know it.
When it's time for me to buy another street bike, the VFR is on the top of the list right now.
Rode a 919 also, it gets one thumb down.
