Honda owes it to us after the launching of the horrid Fury and gouge-my-own-eyes-out Accord Crosstour to offer this beauty for sale in the States.

I was planning on getting an FJR, but the traction control on the 2010 I think might make it worth looking at the Connie more closely.

Have you felt it kick in in your 3000 miles?

ECM maybe? I had similar running issues and a temporary fix was to dielectric grease the plugs going into the ECM. I eventually had to replace the ECM. Worth a quick try anyway.

The fairing design is real nice, would be nice to see such an evolution on a Harley. I agree though, the rest of the bike is too sculpted.

The Buell's been a bit of a maintenance PITA. I want to go Japanese for reliability and dealer network sake. I love BMW's, just don't have the $ and the closest dealer is 2+ house away.
