I change my Vmax 2009 for the new FZ 10.
I was a real VMax fan:1985,1995,2005 (20 th anniversary ) and 2009.The 3 first were changed at 100,000 kms and at 60,000 kms the 2009 was added with a supercharger (GForce division ).13,000 kms later the pain in my back was really no fun si I changed for a FJ 09 to go to Blue Ridge Parkway (at that time the FZ was not on the market in Quebec).But when I came back it was.One ride was enough:the power,the sound and the suspension = happiness.
6,000 kms later winter time ...
A special bike for sure...

No you're not the oldest here, come April I'm turning 69. Of course, once I fire off my Beast, I'm only 20.

What part of the VIN # tells you its build order? Is it the last 4 digits I'm guessing? Mine is 1574 if that's the case. To keep on topic, I too ditched my V-Max to get an FZ. Worlds apart but both really great bikes.

Always wanted to ride a V-Max. Love my FZ too though. I'll be 60 in November so at least I'm not the oldest fart here. But close :)
That V-Max was a helluva bike, I kinda wish I hung on to it but I just know that I am not a 2 bike guy. I have a hard enough time finding/making time to ride one bike. You may indeed be an "older" fart but let's not call you and "OLD" fart just yet, lol. I will be 46 in a couple of weeks and it makes me feel good knowing that older guys are riding this bike. My son picked on me and told me that I was too old for that bike, said it was for "young" people, lol. The little punk!

The V-Max was/is an iconic bike and I am glad I got to own one. It had a bad rap for being ill handling, I didn't find that to be the case really. I knew not to push it beyond what it was built to do. It handled FAR better than any Harley but a refrigerator on an appliance dolly handles better than most Harleys, lol!

That's funny cause I tell people that since I turned 60 years young I had to sell my cruiser ( Raider ) and get back on a naked sport bike before I start looking like a Santa clause on a harley,lol. .
