Both I love for different reasons.
The orange 98 model has some Ohlin rear shocks which are fantastic and at 120kms its still sweet

The 07 is a lovely bike - need to save up for ohlins though

Seriously, my 08 has more free dash space than I've had on any other bike Ive owned. Having said that, my 12v socket is just zap strapped to my handlebars.

Was hoping to have it somewhere on the dashboard, near the handlebar - mainly for GPS.
Any pics would be much appreciated!

TIA

BTW, Varadero is 2009, socket is OEM Part #: 08A30-MBT-800, if that makes any difference.

Two Plugs' new Dero in WHITE...

Finally... today was the 'D' (Dero) Day... I could pick up my brand new 'last of the Mohacins' Varadero!
The original panniers (which where included in the L'Iseran Touring offer) will be replaced by my Hebco & Becker Alu Standard panniers but the pannier rack has to be shipped from Germany (its in backorder).

But the first 41 km from the Honda agent back home proved that with this 4th Varadero I bought in a row since 1998, I made a wise decision! I simply LOVE this bike which is far, far. underrated for its travel & long distance touring capacity.

Here we go with the pics. Enjoy.
