What's that about?
As I searched around the internet looking for information to get my CB550 and CB350 twin running (neither ran when I bought them) I found LOTS of websites dedicated to various Honda motorcycles. The majority of sites I found seemed to be peopled heavily by very opinionated, and very vocal types. On some sites, you couldn't ask a question, on pretty much any subject, without being derided as a tasteless fool because you weren't building your bike just the way that poster built his. You were lambasted for choosing to buy your parts from a certain source, painting your bike a certain color, or adjusting your points instead of replacing them with the latest whiz-bang electronic control. You name it, on some sites, you were going to get five useless, off-topic comments for every useful answer to the question you asked.

The sohc4 forums seemed to lack that kind of posturing. Questions posted there generally resulted in helpful answers, instead of emphatic opinions and derision. The helpful attitude made the site useful.

That's something I like about this site too.

Wow - When I first read the description above I could have sworn you were talking about ADVrider!

GS/PD, again, $8000

http://denver.craigslist.org/mcy/361338129.html

OK, will somebody chime in with the differences between the GS/PD and the other airhead GS's listed previously? Like, other than a huge gas tank and a pretty paint job, why is the PD version worth so much more?

back in the day I had a '72 CB500 Four - it was my fifth bike and got it just after high school. When you mentioned putting your 550 out there....I had a brief moment of nostalgia bike weakness
My first real street bike was a '77 400F. Got it when I was 18. Lived to tell about it too
