I rode my new (replacement) 599 home yesterday from Pasadena! 3401 miles on it, and it is cleaner than it was from the dealer. Astonishing.

I paid $5k for it and I think I got a steal.

Man, you need to get yourself an electric vest and gloves, or some grip-heaters. You'll catch your Death riding in those temps!

It's been teens and twenties on the way to work here for the last two weeks - mid-thirties to low-fifties on the way home in the dark............

599's are excellent bikes, to be honest they're about the only Honda I'd like to own. Are ya' gonna' keep this one outta' the weeds there Darlin?....

I sure as heck hope so. That over the cliff punt I did last August was not my usual riding behavior!

Besides, I just put Pilot Powers on my CB-1, and I haven't even come close to the edges of THAT rubber! Wow, talk about stiction.

I use Pilot Roads on my Bandit up here and they stick as well as you could expect in the wet, great in the dry months and they hold up for at least 10k. I wish I could fit them on my Dyna as well, I use Dunlop GT501's on it that work fairly well in the rain given the bikes cornering limitations

Yeah, Roads are great too. I used up two sets on my first 599 and loved them. the first pair lasted about 12,500 miles; the second pair still had a K or so on them when I flipped them into the canyon.

Sachi if you can't stay out of the weeds with this one, I'm going to have to start taking applications for the new and improved "Safety Queen". I don't want to do it, but you will force my hand!
