That's a pretty good looking machine.  Kind of looks like the spawn of a road glide and Goldwing that had sex and birthed this thing.  I bet performance on this thing is great.

I like it. I had a Yamaha 4 wheeler and they make great products. Don't like the price though.

Don't think I will give up on Honda but that is a fine looking machine.

I don't think any of us gave up on Honda....Honda gave up on us.  They stopped making anything worth it.  I mean they are supreme in the sportbike & dirtbike world but they fell off the map on cruisers. 

The only Honda bike I would ride now is the CB1100EX and I would have to heavily modify it.  I'm actually thinking about picking one of those up and making it in to a café racer.

The price is right in line with the Indian Roadmaster but this appears to be a better thought out machine. It looks better than a Harley Eletra Glide with a starting price well below the Harley!!

read a report that listed Yamaha as #1 with the fewest customer problems, Honda #2. Pretty good considering the number of offerings these companies produce. BMW was # 10 and HD came in at #7 before someone asks.

I have noticed unfortunately.
I am going back a few years in Honda historic Tory for my next bike.
