That would be a full on Autocycle.So, no $30,000 Honda with heat, air conditioning and reverse?
Those other two are very nice too but there were a couple of things that steered me away.Hey Hawker, why the Connie over all the other sport tour bikes? I'm looking into the FJR and ST.
Ditto, I test rode the Connie and the FJ, the big Kawasaki was better, even without cruise control, which I don't want on a motorcycle.Those other two are very nice too but there were a couple of things that steered me away.
The FJ is only a 5 speed trans and has fairly low foot peg clearance. When I sat on a new one the seat was way too wide for my skinny arse and the bike felt really top heavy.
The ST is nice too. A little heaver than the Connie and quite a bit less power. My buddy who owns the local Honda shop said the radiator hoses are an issue with them. They tend to blow out at around 30k miles and are a real bitch to get to.
Then when I rode a couple of Connies it was love at first ride.
Hey Fast guy. I appreciate the offer. It's going to be a whirlwind trip.When I first saw the pic of the bike, I was like "hey, that looks like Birds of prey". Then I saw where you lived and thought, must be near him. I went there to look at the '09, but they didn't have any. Said that naked bikes weren't a real big seller and they weren't going to get any unless somebody wanted to order it, yet they had a few Triumph triples that I also looked at, the street and speed triples from them, but for the price, the '09 was just to good to pass on. When are you going to be picking it up? Maybe we can get together and grab a bite to eat before you head out.
