Honda spot-on again! 2011

the 2010 VFR1200"S" is more sport than touring which is fine for those looking for sport. I opted for a C14.

2011 Honda has the 1200T....??????????? touring version goes further on a tank of gas and has acceptable luggage plus the baddass V4................... do I scrap the C14 next year???

I'm not so sure that bike will outperform a C14 in any regard??

friend of mine told me no way in hell would it hold the sweet 55 litre GIVI trunk like i have on the back of my C14.

i told him "yeah, but this Kawi has 14K miles on it, thats slam wore out for this brand!"

I'd still opt for the C14 vs. the VFR.........better performance when you want it, and who cares about mileage? You'll be the first one to the pump and back on the road before that Honda makes it off the Interstate anyway!!

Steve, that bike looks like the new Police bikes they have patrolling now. If you got this, you would definately part the traffic as you moved thru!

Get rid of the Concours and sell it to someone who will appreciate it . You would be much happier on a honda even if it is slower, handles worse, and vibrates more.
