I bought it in May and love it so far.

I rode scooters in China for several years. Then I got a
(MY2003) which I loved but it got too old. Then 50's birthday came an other half and I decided to get something new yet classic. The combination of power (for our needs), size, handling proved to be the perfect blend. I do short commutes to subway, short rides to the beach and hiking spots or photo/drone spots.


Love the site and the friendly and helpful community!

Cheers!

Some other thoughts:

Size is right for me (I am 5.7 and 145 pounds)
Suspension does feel a bit soft
I just did the 1,000km check at Honda service, changed the oil and oil filter. Bike is smooth!
There are parts that are cheap. There is rust on the exhaust. Honda did apply some sort of pain on it. I do ride it in all weather conditions to include heavy rain.
It is very good looking bike ;)
