1996 Honda VF750C Magna
The best Honda ever made
Nothing has gone wrong with this bike. I have beaten every Harley pulling up to me and left them way behind me. This is a powerful machine. It is running great with 18k miles and I would drive it cross country tomorrow.
I bought the bike in 2003 and sold it last year. I regretted selling it and called the owner and told them I wanted it back if they would sell it back to me and he agreed to. I picked it back up today. I love my Magna 750. I have over $3k in accessories on it, including forward pegs, exhaust, seat, bags, sissy bar, luggage rack -- the works.
They shouldn't have ever stopped making the Magna...
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

I owned a 96 Magna, and I agree that it is a great motorcycle. I spent as much money modifying mine as it cost to purchase it.
I got compliments on this bike all the time. It is a good blend of ability and style.
However, it might out run STOCK Harley's. This does not include the V-rod, which would entirely kick the Magna's rear end, period.
I'm not trying to rain on your parade (might be your first bike love affair for all I know) but you must not have raced many bikes.
