    No contest here..........the Honda is better in almost every way if you are looking at a used bike, and doesnt come with inbuilt and expensive prospective problem areas like the Beta. However even though thats certainly the case, a Beta in good condition which has been properly maintained is still going to be better than a Honda which has been abused.

    Thanks for the info, pulled the trigger and brought the bike back tonight with the help of another inmate... Thanks Motojunkie!

    The bike is in very good shape and I know the history of bike as being well maintained.

    If you have the Honda, you have made the right choice.

    Its a good bike............far more reliable than any of the Euros, and ideal for a nwecomer.

    Thanks. I was able to take the bike out yesterday for a good ride with another inmate. Had a blast:freaky
    Learning curve is pretty steep as my brain is still programmed for big enduros, but the bike performed very well and seems to be (knock on wood) very solid.

    By the way, it occurred to me this morning that your bike will forever be known as "The Hippo." :D

    Merry Christmas!

    Haha, Classic. My daughter keeps going out in the garage checking on "The Hippo." She is super excited, maybe even more than me.

    Merry Christmas to you too!
