Absolutely love it, many people have offered to buy, I will never sell
Basic maintenance items needed; the bike sat outside for 8 years when I got it:
Fuel tank was rusted (hard to find a new one).
A very comfortable bike to ride; has a lot more power than I was expecting. On my first ride I popped the clutch and lifted the front wheel about a foot off the ground!
I painted the bike black with red stripe, and polished the chrome, and I get a lot of looks on this bike.
I wouldn't take this bike on a cross Canada tour, but for the city/first bike, it is freaking awesome!!
Extremely reliable, always starts, and once I got all the leaks under control, it has been a true Honda.
I really like the simplicity of the bike and the cheesy 80's corn star wheels.
Well I am not a veteran rider, but I think it handles quite well; I don't feel afraid to throw it into a corner at higher speeds.
It takes pot holes/bumps quite well, without knocking you off the bike.
I have ridden with a friend who has a 85 hp Yamaha, and I keep up quite well with him on the highway with my 45 hp. I think it is because of gearing/lightness of the bike.
6 speed transmission is really nice, I like cruising on the highway in 6th, you are not toying with the throttle all the time.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
