Previous motorcycleHonda CB750

Summary:

This is the best toy I have ever bought, and the most durable

Faults:

Headlights remained off after cranking, because the starter switch needed lubricant to fully release.

General Comments:

I tried a different brand tire each time I replaced them, and found Metzler to improve the handling characteristics dramatically. The bike was more responsive in tight turns and curvy roads.

The low mounted engine makes this a good bike for mountain riding, as it is not top heavy and handles well in the sharp curves. And the EFI system handles the different altitudes with no problem.

I put 6,538 miles in a coast to coast and back trip in 14 days, and had no problems at all.
