Great bikes, and it just so happens that I'm getting ready to sell mine (don't need two sport touring bikes) but haven't posted it yet.

Drop me a note if you're still wanting one.

Granted, my sporty doesn't excel at anything in particular, other than putting a big smile on my face every time I throw a leg over and push the start button. Or,
even walk out into the garage and look at it....

Ridden at a rather relaxed, smell the roses pace, I find it a very enjoyable motorcycle. It tickles the right visceral senses for me and in ways that a great many "better" motorcycles fail to do. It's no sport bike and its no touring bike, but for just a casual, fun to ride bike it's just right. A great streetable power delivery, reasonable comfort (I am in the process of improving the suspension though), decent handling when ridden at a sane pace, and just a feel and sound that's just right. I probably wouldn't be satisfied with it as an "only bike" but luckily I have others for other riding needs, so the sporty fits into the stable very nicely. . In fact since getting it at the first of the year all the rest have been collecting dust.

Still sorta surprises me when I think, "me? On a Harley? And I LIKE IT!" But that's the way it worked out.


Yeah, that makes sense, I'd have one in the garage as a 3rd bike.

Swung by the Honda dealer last weekend to check out the current models.

The F6B broke my heart. It looks nowhere near as good in person, nor was the seat as comfortable as I would have expected.

The CB1100 really suprised me. A simple, well built bike with no pretensions to anything else. I probably would have bought that instead of what I did if it had been available 7 months ago.

The NC700X was as impressive as the write ups, and I have to say, I find myself thinking about it a lot.
If I was going to buy right now, pending a test ride, I would be looking at one of these first, it almost seems purpose built for me.


I'll shift my own gears though...

Still want a new black C-14, maybe a new FJR too. Of course plenty of go fast goodies on them too. Kinda like a sleeper bike.
