Hey yall. After a bit of a vacation from riding I'm finally getting back into it so I thought I'd come back online and start posting again. I'll definately be posting alot b/c my new job keeps me traveling alot now so I'm cooped up in a hotel most evenings. I picked up a Light Silver 2005 Honda VFR800 from Touring Sport on Laurens Rd in Greenville. I've been looking for one for a long time and just happened to be at a car show when I struck up a conversation w/ a salesman from there. Turns out they had just what I was looking all over the south east for. I must say, if I look for another bike I'd like to buy from them again. My experience was completely pleasant. Well, it's good to see everyone again, and hopefully I'll get to hit some rides with yall this year as it warms up. I've already put 700 miles on it in 2 weeks and look forward to many many more. BTW, anyone going to the motorcycle expo this weekend? I'll be there Sat.

Here are some pics, from when I picked it up, then after a ride my friend and I did the other weekend.

Hope you get to do a lot of riding with the Honda!
My R1 and My Monster 900 both came from Touring sport also. (Thanks Rob!)

Hanging out at a car show and pushing motorcycles seems like something Rob would do!

Rob could qualify as one of the coolest salesmen in the world.:king:
I've met a few nice salesmen in my life, but he just seems to be there to help you out no matter what type bike you are looking for. And he doesn't try to steer you toward the most expensive bike in the shop. He listens to you whether you go in to buy or even to just look around for that next purchase.
And I can say he was very honest with Terry and myself really appreciate that.:boast:

Max Shaffer was the salesman that helped me. He held the bike for me even after my original financing fell through and I had to find alternative. Had new tires put on and he waved the labor. Yeah, someone decided they needed the gixxer more than I did, so they came and helped themselves to it. I miss it, but this bike is just as exciting, somewhat even more so. I like the newness of it and all the attention to detail Honda paid. I was wondering what it'd be like in the mountains since it's a sport-touring, but turns out it falls into the corners as easily as the gixxer did. I'm looking forward to going on some nice rides with everyone.

I'm glad you found a bike that you like and got a great expierence with buying it!:ok:
If I had known that you were looking for someone to steal the gixxer, I would have smuggled it away! :blum:
Maybe we'll se you out at the store sometime soon! Plenty of curves to be slammin' the bike through there!:ohyea:
