Here is my Dero almost ready...







It just needs some tweeks & twists to get it perfect (raise the front about 1 inch, powder coating the wheels in shiny black and get some hand protectors from Polisport).

Iīll keep you guys update.

Some fresh pics.







I just love that big (190) fat tire!

The stock OEM wheels are being fitted with some new TKC tires for those days I just want to get away from tarmac!

New Honda's in 2010? Varadero? wha?

Anyone see this on totalmotorcycle.com?

http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/photo...dels-Honda.htm

show a 2010 Varadero?

Honda has the nicest bikes in other places, but the US stuff sucks...

The Varadero and the CBF1000 are both available in Canada now. I'm hoping they will also bring them into the US soon. How can these bikes succeed if riders aren't given the choice of buying them?

Sure, the cruiser market dominates in the US, but Suzuki can sell loads of VStroms, Honda should be able to as well.

this is all about corperate bean counters not the "market" on their silly little spread sheets. I bet if they were sold here, the dealers wouldnt be able to keep them in stock.

That is what they thought here in Canada, but it turned out to be a very slow seller. Once you've seen it in person, you will know why V-Stroms continue to sell and the 2008 Varaderos stay on the showroom floors.

lol!

Again, you are reluctant to post figures for your claims. Please supply details. You can do that, can't you?

And your opinion of the Varadero is only your opinion. You seem to content to dump on it whenever possible. The majority of people I know who have ridden both seem to prefer the Varadero. In my thirty-five or so years of riding it always amazes me of the armchair critics who seem content to put down a particular motorcycle without having any real experience with it. This winter I've had sitting in my shop everything from 'Stroms to 800s, and although each exhibits a different character, all of them good bikes in their own right.

If anyone has the opportunity to ride a Varadero I would certainly take it. Very comfortable and very smooth. Immediate throttle response and excellent road manners. I found one of the most exemplary features to be the standard ABS brakes. Great modulation with excellent stopping power. In short, a tremendous "all road" bike that I personally found to be very rewarding.
