    1978 Honda CB 750 F2.... I had one for a couple of years, bought it new.
    Up to the '08 650 V Strom factory seat, worst seat of any bike I'd ever owned.
    Also had a annoying habit of chewing up cam's & rocker arms & dropped intake valves on 2 occasions. I was told that they (the F2 models) "Did That". To this day I have not purchased another Honda bike.
    On a positive note; It would keep up with my brother in law's first year KZ1000 in a straight line.... :evil

    I just had my 3rd back surgery so any bike that leans me foreword even just a little bit it out. I have, however, been dreaming of a Maryland to Alaska and back trip for quite a while now. Anything that will allow me to make that ride is what I want. Recently went to a major bike show in Timmonium Maryland and every major manufacturer was there with their respective inventories. The 2 that I found the most comfortable were the Harley Electra Classic Ultra Limited and the BMW 1600GTL. Both awesome bikes. My 9 year old co-pilot says the BMW is better.

    And here I was thinking the fairing and windshield on the red one would probably be nice :D Actually, I take the windshield off my V-Star quite often when it's not bug season. They all look good, but thanks for the report :thumb

    It didn't even take that! I watched a youtube video of someone wringing a 1600's neck with a good microphone.

    I think Honda should just go ahead and rename that bike the FB6 since NO ONE gets it right. :lol3 Not that it bugs me or anything...

    I would go with the one that has the footpegs in the correct position (below seat). 70mpg would be great, but I think for less $ I would go with the 15 more HP, 2500 more rpm, and 1 more front disc that is offered on the Versys.
