This one stepped me into the land of having issues.. I now need to clean my garage to make room. Actually, I just need to sell the VFR. What I bought is the direct replacement for the VFR.. It's already set up to do what I wanted the VFR to be, without screwing up a perfectly good bike..

I'm awfully busy.. I did get a chance to put 60 miles on it today, and got it registered and a license plate installed..

Care to guess at what I purchased?? Need hints??

Hmmmmm?

Hmmm. Hadda put plates on it. Either out of state or new. What the VFR was supposed to be - Not a dual sport. Couple of hours drive to get it - that could take you into four different states. You wouldn't get another BMW, I don't think - too ruttish/repetetive.

If you went and got an NT 700...

NO BACON FOR YOU!!

Excellent guess!! But incorrect.. I actually was kinda close to trading off the VFR for a R1150GS, but the guy's bike was worth double of the VFR and I didn't want to come up with that much cash..

Actually, here in IL nobody transfers plates, but yeah, I bought it in West Bend, Wisconsin and registered it here in IL (actually in WI as I type this)..

2007 was the year it was made.

Nope.. Tom was right about it not being a Dual Sport. And no, it's not a NT700.. I've looked at them and I just find them cheap.. The bags are actually really small, and flimsy.. Still would like to ride one, though..

It wouldn't be made by a now nearly defunct design team that got bent over and educated in MC corruption by a large 'American" MC company would it?
