Welcome Dutchy. The RC51 is clearly a better bike than the VFR, but you might still miss that one too. Several of us here have VFR750 & 800's. There seems to be a force toward gear driven cams that draws riders to these bikes in particular...

I'm sure you'll love the RC51 for many years. Responds well to modifications too!

久しぶり!!!

As you saw on VFRD, I completely stripped my RC36's engine and kept the valve trains as memento.
Sold off the parts I could, the remainder went to the scrappies... So next time you pop a can of beer, there might be some redslut in your hands...
(for those not on VFRD, that was my bike's nickname).
Pics in my virtual garage here on rc51forums.

Old enough to know better, young enough not to care.
