Dct.

Reminds me when electric start came along. Everyone though that was nuts and would never last. Same with disc brakes on dirt bikes. Headlights that stayed on would completely drain the battery. Cast...

Regular/Premium.

Assuming they will recommend Premium gas but Regular can be used with a chance of predetonation in high temperatures. I only say this cause my S10 which is 1200cc/110hp recommends Premium but I have...

Standard gas? You mean Regular. Not if its 1000cc and 110hp. It'll be Premium gas.

See a couple of guys did it today. Tire tracks at the gate. Unfortunately I was in an SUV to Forgetmenot Pond. Still a little cool and wet looking on the Powederface. Saw an S10 and what looked like...

RTW trips are few and far between. Honda won't make a bike just for that although any bike could be used and has been. A 1000cc twin just will never be as practical as a single 650 (or 250) such as a...

Don't forget.

All the manufacturers lie about weight. If they say 440, it'll be closer to 500lbs wet. Still very reasonable for a 1000cc bike.

Yes. The linked brakes help wear the rear pads faster. The rears usually come on first at slower speeds while pulling on the front brake. If you get 25,000 mi out of a set of rears, you are doing...

All the way. Had the 2012 for 2 years, so I know. Too many refinements on the 14 to list. It is by far the better bike. Many on here think they can make a 14 out of a 12 but it won't even come close....
