Back in the early 2000s, Honda made some great bikes that are now gone. The Valkyrie and Valkyrie Interstate, The Magna, the 750 and 250 Nighthawks, the Shadow VLX (which outran ALL the Shadow 750s) the Shadow Sabre 1100 and Spirit 1100, which were great real world cruisers, and the ST1100, for those who like sport touring bikes. The only one still left is the Rebel 250. The only thing Honda makes now that I might like is the CB1100 and the Goldwing FB6. The FB6 is out of my price range, but it's a neat idea. NOT nearly as neat as the original Valkyrie though. So while Yamaha, Kawasaki, and Suzuki has several bikes I like, Honda has nothing. The 700 and 500 twins are to ugly to be seen in public on, no matter how they ride. Nobody makes decent dirt bikes now, having switched from 2 stroke to 4 stroke, but you can blame the EPA for that. As for Honda cars, they have always been drop dead boring, with the exception of the mid '70s Civic, and the NSX, if you count Acura, but again too expensive. My sisters Mazda Miata is tons of fun for a low price. The only true Japanese sports car seems to be the Nissan GTR.
