Summary:

Finest bike I have EVER owned!

Faults:

Had new front fork seals at 14000 miles.

Wore out the seat cover in 2005.

General Comments:

This bike continues to impress me and almost any other Honda fan. As with most Hondas, 3 hours of riding means a sore tail!

Summary:

This motorcycle is a classic

Faults:

The exhaust is starting to rust. I am looking for an aftermarket exhaust that is loud, preferably a 2 into 1 exhaust system, but there is not much to choose from. Can anyone help?

I'm starting to see more oil being burned.

General Comments:

This motorcycle fits me extremely well; being a beginner I feel that I will not have to learn on a smaller bike and then have to buy another larger bike once I'm comfortable.

Summary:

It is amazing!

General Comments:

I've only owned this bike a short time, but I love it!

It's fast, stable and very comfortable so far.

I didn't expect the dual range gear box to make as big a difference as it does. In the high range it feels like it will just cruise effortlessly forever.

If anyone has an owners manual they would be willing to photo-copy, please e-mail: ninetoestavern@yahoo.com.

It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
