It's getting to be an old bike now, but it still turns heads (and snaps necks). Smooth power delivery from under 2000rpm in top, to -- well, nobody knows -- and it pulls from a stop at idle. Great fuel mileage; eats road miles at a prodigious rate, or rewards hard-core attention by blowing a surprising number of other bikes onto the shoulder.
I have had one for over three years now (see avatar), and just got a "parts bike" running. It's so pretty, in original purple and yellow, and its controls and bodywork -- everything is so nice, it looks like it's about 2 years old. I'm keeping it together!
After 40+ years riding, plus racing, long distance touring, etc., on over 40 bikes, I must say that the RF900R has the best feel and balance of all of them, for what it's supposed to do. There simply isn't any other bike that can deliver the miles so comfortably, so stinking fast, with so little effort and on so little gas, and still be so much fun!
Oh -- I have made a few mods: Corbin seat, Heli-bars, one tooth less in rear sprocket, Yoshimura can, Road Attacks, faired turn signals, car horns, LED lights, lots of powder coating and custom candy apple paint, and Hayabusa (Tokico) 3-pot front calipers.
I'll never want another bike, 'cuz I'll never be able to outride this one. (Don't snicker, young 'un -- I'll bet you can't, either.)
