I have a lot of respect for that CX motor. I had two over the years...they weren't racers, but they were endearing. And it took courage for Honda to try something so different, and it's a shame they couldn't evolve it into a modern model.
Someone gave a Like to my photo of 2017's score, the Silver Wing. Like many others, that had a bad end - in that case, my own situation. Short of money, after neck surgery - and I had to sell a toy. I put all three of my bikes up on the List of Craig, and within hours, a guy a few years younger pops up, wants to see it.
Unlike so many other contacts on CL, he did come. He came with money. He listened; he rode it a block, and then paid my asking price, which was the price I paid for it.
Turns out his twentysomething son had just rebuilt a CX500, with some bags on it - and this guy wanted something similar. He loved the Vetter-style fairing and the factory cases.
I didn't want to sell, but I think it went to a good home. Oddly, I haven't seen it anywhere since, even though the guy was local. That never bodes well...but if he bought it for the engine, he overpaid.
That Kaw brings back fond memories.
I had a Kaw KH400 triple
If "one trick" you mean , creates modified motorcycles with skills and precision that you couldn't on your best day or in your wildest dreams , even approach. Well yeah.
Can't do a decent Elvis on black velvet either, even in my dreams.
Change it to a blue one and that's me.
A bit off topic here and not meaning to hijack this thread, but owning a Kaw 500 says a lot about a person's character. It doesn't quite sum up a person's life, but it's a pretty good indicator.
Something you might put on a tombstone......

No more wind protection like those Vetter fairings gave, but now no one wants to shift.

I bought my 1984 kawi 750 Turbo from the original owner about 10 years ago. She’s got 7k miles and a few discreet mods. Never restored however still in near-new condition.
