I've ridden my 08 1800T for 11 years now - bought it new in 2010. My only complaint are the stock seats. I put the Ultimate X seat on in 2017 and can't believe I waited so long to ditch the stock seat! I'm a big guy at 6'10" and it's been a good bike for me.

I found after changing to Metzler tires ride improved 100%. I like this bike because of the power and reliability of Honda. I dont have any down side at all.
So far a decent bikeBy (I am an Owner) on Sep 01, 2010
I bought this new 08 on 3/1/10. As of today 9/1/10 I have 13,900 on it. No major probs. Down sides are : bad seat design, no self cancel signals, low performing brakes, Handle bar and seat mod required by most, headlight illumination not good and adjustment difficult. Using the Honda engine / crash ... bars cause feet to hit rear brake pedal, clutch is tempermental. The bike is built with less quality than my 07 Vstar 1300 but is ten times more reliable from a mechanical aspect. Im 235 5' 8" tall. these are the down sides. The bike is a monster with respect to power. wife feels more cramped than on the star.
Id give it a 8 out of 10 so far.
