Eric here, after being in the market for a muscle, the more reviews I read, the more I realized that “going really fast in a straight line” wasn’t what I was looking for. Picked up my R last week.
I've had 'em both. Had an R, but had to sell due to a cervical fusion. Picked up an F to replace.
The R is *definitely* a hoot-- basically a 600 lb. sport bike. Especially if you tune the engine, get rid of the boat anchor H-D laughingly calls an exhaust, and reworking the front fork and rear shocks.
That being said, doing all of the above to an F makes for a pretty hair-raising ride as well; it does just fine in the twisties-- enough that I had to change out to pegs that gave me more clearance.
Either way, you can't go wrong.
The only real issue with the R is parts. The F is a right bear to find parts for, but it's a walk in the park compared to an R!
Picked up my 2007 R this past weekend.
Denim blue with Tab slip-ons.
Wow what a find. Nice of that previous owner to save it for you all these years.

Well, I am already in here on my old 06 VRSCR, but it is long gone (2009 sold it reluctantly when I moved to Hong Kong China area).
I am now riding my newest 06 VRSCR (Supercharged) model and figured I should list it here.
