    Alarm, fender flares with side armor, undercoatings? Window VIN etching. Leather. The beautiful two tone color. It changes in the light...

    So I owned a 2001 Honda CBR929RR & 2002 CBR954RR. Honda only makes the CBR line in Japan. I geuss like the FJ & 4Runners they're their baby's and want to keep close eye on production? The CBR's were 1 year apart BUT what a difference in handling from the 929RR to 954RR. 929 was fun 954 was AWESOME bike. Like riding on rails, corners,straight line little to NO head shake even coming off some turn & rise the roads!

    Here’s the CBR you want. Now they got traction control, ABS, it’s really advanced. I’ve seen this bike ride on the front tire at 75mph for a hundred yards!!!A052BB87-321B-41AD-8D56-C2F42EDD1D68.jpgIts against the laws of physics!!!

    5DE3F66D-EA81-4DC5-92E1-86FB58272597.jpg Here’s the first CBR ever made!! I traded it for my 89 Toyota P/U. Then found out it had a blown head-gasket. Guy still has it on display at his shop..

    No steering stabilizer? You look very well off. I’ve got to pay a massive school tax on a piece of property in Pa that they say is worth $800...lol The surveyor says it’s worth way more than that though. I’m gonna camp there soon. The last time I visited, the neighbor had a pile of corn and a trail cam, right in the middle of it. Pissed me off.lol

    That's crazy. Funny how the same vehicles get totally different averages.

    I have owned 3 different 3rd gens... 2 were v6, 1 of the V6s was 4x4. The 4x4 was lifted with bigger tires and still the worse i ever seen was 17mpg. I was getting 15-16 while pulling a boat. I was averaging 20-23 before lift and tires.

    I actually had no issues what so ever with any of my 3rd gens. First 1 was a 4cyl, totaled because of a young woman not paying attention... Next got a v6 2wd. After about a year decided i wanted 4x4... Kept it 2 years.

    Traded it last week for the 4runner... 2019 sr5 4x4... Which i also love. I've always wanted one and decided i better get one before they change it up.

    I'm averaging 18mpg with the T4R. Street tires and all. 13 when towing a small trailer with 6-7 bags of trash to the landfill. Not as good fuel economy as any of my 3rd gen tacomas... I'm scared to see what it does pulling my boat.

    But i still love the T4R. Didn't buy it for fuel economy.

    Only issues I'm having is i have under 500 miles on it and the steering wheel shakes at around 60mph and the vehicle pulls to the right. I'm going to the service department in the morning and asking them to balance the tires and do an alignment.

    Keep it under 70 and take it easy accelerating. I got 17 towing a medium sized fishing boat. I have been averaging 18-19, and can get 21.5 on the highway loaded with gear and a giant roof basket.

    Ive had multiple Toyota vehicles and have never had a major issue with any of them. 94 Supra that I fully built and swapped to a MT trans. 09 Tacoma that I had on 37's. 12 Tundra Rockwarrior. 14 Tundra Platinum, and now my 14 4runner limited. It seems just as great as all of my others I have had. Hope it stays that way.
