Summary:

It is the best value for a luxury bike

Faults:

This bike is extremely comfortable, for me and my passenger, and I really like the performance on 87 octane gas.

The purchase price was very reasonable, which is typical of HONDA.

My neighbors LIKE the fact that it is VERY quiet when I ride by their house.

General Comments:

I will never own a different motorcycle, although I've owned about 35 bikes in the past 38 years.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
