I'll take another look at them.
Weren't you planning on doing the TAT, surely not on the 230?
I have plans of doing the TAT, I thought this year, but got side tracked a bit. I'm building a NX650 for that endeavor.
Going to do the Shadow of The Rockies ride in May. Going to start in southern New Mexico, follow the trail into Colorado. Going through Utah and will end up in Reno. Going to us the 230 for that ride, about 1300 miles. They are a bit on the smallish side, but that makes them easy and fun to ride. Pretty neat little bike, 6 speed, disks front and back, air cooled, carb, and pretty light weight. Most of all, Honda reliability.
