I hear you there! I'm looking for enough power to get up long grades at 65+ MPH without locking the throttle wide open, good fuel economy, and affordable pricing.

Best wishes to you with your next bike

Tonight, it's this:



Fat chance of ever finding one, except that it's a late one, with the unloved comstar wheels and 4 into 1 exhaust. Love the black paint and engine. I think this may be the only 750-4 I ever rode.

Had one. Suspension beat me up on any kind of rough road. Stolen, so I went to a '79 GS 550. Not as powerful, but I could ride it all day and not get tired. Good handling bike in it's day, too.

1978 Honda CB 750 F2.... I had one for a couple of years, bought it new.
Up to the '08 650 V Strom factory seat, worst seat of any bike I'd ever owned.
Also had a annoying habit of chewing up cam's & rocker arms & dropped intake valves on 2 occasions. I was told that they (the F2 models) "Did That". To this day I have not purchased another Honda bike.
On a positive note; It would keep up with my brother in law's first year KZ1000 in a straight line....

Saw the ctx models at a recent bike show...get the black one if you're serious about a ctx...the red one makes the wee look like a super model.

Anything touring

I just had my 3rd back surgery so any bike that leans me foreword even just a little bit it out. I have, however, been dreaming of a Maryland to Alaska and back trip for quite a while now. Anything that will allow me to make that ride is what I want. Recently went to a major bike show in Timmonium Maryland and every major manufacturer was there with their respective inventories. The 2 that I found the most comfortable were the Harley Electra Classic Ultra Limited and the BMW 1600GTL. Both awesome bikes. My 9 year old co-pilot says the BMW is better.

I have been fascinated with the Scrambler lately.

This one is awesome.

And here I was thinking the fairing and windshield on the red one would probably be nice Actually, I take the windshield off my V-Star quite often when it's not bug season. They all look good, but thanks for the report

It didn't even take that! I watched a youtube video of someone wringing a 1600's neck with a good microphone.
