I was considering that one as well ....... ***last year i almost pulled the trigger on a white vfr at the honda centre, but ended up choosing to stay with the blackbird.
I'd like to do the grips but $300 is pretty expensive, even though they fit flawlessly. You don't have any issues with the tight seat/peg fit? And what is your opinion of the DCT? I think a ride report on that would be interesting.Yeah mine was less than that for a DCT brand new out the door with heated grips. I added the bags on later. After decades of doing all day trips on sport bikes it's like nothing I've ever experienced.
For fuel I find if I stop at 2 hours or so and gas up I can do that all day long with no fatigue vs. a longer stint but also longer breaks when I do stop.
