Most motorcyclists think it is more about the journey than the destination, and I am certainly one of those. But I think this is a good appliance to get you from A to B, comfortably, with as little fuss as possible. It will be a good bike for someone that is thinking about what to cook for dinner on their ride home vs. someone that wonders if the front end would track just a little bit better after a pothole with a little more rebound damping.
Jimmy, you sure you don't work for Honda? Sounds like you understand where they are coming from and where they want to go with this line...That's exactly what I got from their Introduction piece posted here earlier.
