Oh, I wouldn't want to ride after I'd been drinking.  I do have a few drinking standards.   :bigok:

I'd like to ride one locally just to see if I'd love it.  Or course I'm totally in love with my B12 yet.  That's the issue.  That and I'm drinking.

Coming off the Bandit, you may not love the VFR.  To my recollection, there is nothing the VFR can do that the Bandit can't and the Bandit is more comfortable, has more torque and is much uglier.

Wait, what?  The VFR is better at preserving tires.  There's that.  :)  If you get a 5th gen VFR, the engine noise is very sexy with the right pipe.  6th gen?  Meh.  I rode 5th and 6th back to back and the 6th just didn't do it for me. 

This one, however, is incredibly sexy.

Don't drink and ride, don't drink and drive, and only drink it if it's wet.

Just so long as "I don't drink and type" stays off the list...
