  • A blast to ride!
    By  (I am an Owner) on Oct 20, 2009

    I bought my bike in Dec '08 and after 3500 miles I have had absolutely no problems. This bike is perfect, typical Honda quality, just hop on and ride. Everywhere I go, it turns heads. Just the right amount of chrome really makes it stand out. I love this bike!
