What's the local Honda store these days? I bought a few bikes at Hawkeye Honda about 100 years ago.

And enough with the cruise. Get the bike and a set of Throttlemeisters. Call it good. Geez.

I do get the ABS bitch though. I'm still a little bent that I couldn't get it on my ZX-14R last year and it's available this year.

I want one of those too. But I'm not sure why.

And I'm thinking next years FB6 gets cruise and ABS.

Make mine the Yamaha Concept XTW-250. Build it, bring it here, and I will buy it (honest!).

I'm very seriously considering one of these three bikes. Low price tag, more performance than what I've got, and pretty darn good fuel mileage

I REALLY want a CB1100, but being pragmatic I will wait to see & check out the new trio of 500's due in a month or so....
The 700's 6500 redline motor may well be practical & make Logical sense but I like a engine to rev & make horsepower even if it has a "powerband".
Like my current V Strom 1k.... strong mid range & reasonable top end surge with the "box" & slip on's... it's pretty strong up to 8500+ now. It wasn't stock tho....

I hear you there! I'm looking for enough power to get up long grades at 65+ MPH without locking the throttle wide open, good fuel economy, and affordable pricing.

Best wishes to you with your next bike

Tonight, it's this:



Fat chance of ever finding one, except that it's a late one, with the unloved comstar wheels and 4 into 1 exhaust. Love the black paint and engine. I think this may be the only 750-4 I ever rode.
