anyone want to buy a GS and or a XRL?
Nice find Bob. I've often wished for Honda reliability, but they haven't offered anything in my flavor yet. This might be the trick. I'm waiting with crossed fingers. . .

Hondas Rule!

At our garage, we swore off working on any pre 90's Suzuki, Yamaha or Kawi after repeated frustrations and failures in their parts. All our custom and cafe bikes have been antique Hondas. I'm not poo-pooing those other brands...just that Honda engineering and metallurgy has really stood the test of time.






Oh except for those V4 Hondas from the 80's

Does the sun rise in the east? Absolutely. I have received many good tips from ride reports - e.g. see the one from HBN. I also plan to hit that distillery

Selling my cbr600 f4i.
In case anyone is interested locally I can work out a deal with a special cat price. Would love to see this bike stay in the area! This is a great street bike, I rode all over Europe with it, this bike has been in the belly of a jumbo jet from Canada to Europe and back. Tim Morris serviced it most recently.

good luck. best offer i've had on my SV is $2000.. Maybe mine is overpriced, but at $2000 i'm keeping it.

Kids these days would rather spend $3,000 on big screen tv's,computers,iPhones and video games. Instead they could be cruising around on a CBR or an SV right now. We'll see how it does on auction, f4i's have been doing well lately although most are a bit cleaner and unused then my worn but well loved and intact original example.
