Hey guys, thanks for the replies. As much as I was intrigued by these bikes, I have decided to pass on them after thinking long and hard about it. I already have 10 bikes and three cars, but only...

Jazzman, that looks exactly like the rear rack I got down at the local Honda dealer. You sure that's a Japan only rack?

Good point about the V motor; in hindsight it's only really applicable to a lame April Fool's joke. I'm dead serious about the oval piston 3 cylinder though. :wink: Internal code name for the...

I was looking at an old Africa Twin on some website today and they called it XLV750R so I think it would make sense to call it XLV1000R. Not to mention, I had to to come up with something for my...

My 20 year old, fuel-injected Subaru has 243k miles on it. Have never touched the FI system for any reason. I think it would be tougher to claim that on most carbed vehicles with that many miles.
