You might think I'm down on Honda too. But I'm not. Wife and I ride a pair of 'em right now. I still got my CB1100F in the shed, engine needs to be rebuilt. It burns oil and smokes really bad, and...

No, Honda was NOT first. Kawasaki was first with the Z1R-TC. They were built by Alan Masek and fed back into the Kawasaki dealer network. They were not long-term salable because of the disclaimer...

That would be the best, to agree to disagree.

The dealer may or may not hide that in the sticker price. If they do, you're getting screwed on sales tax, and they're not going to just eat it.

Cool. What was your thoughts as a first-time looker as to how well they did the integration of the trike system onto the Ultra platform?

As an example, my first reaction is why did they leave the...

No. I think it had more to do with the fact that Kawasaki did it and had demo'd the GPZ750 Turbo. Which caught Honda off-guard. So Honda played MeToo. Grab an armload of stuff off the shelf and put...

I agree. The best theory at present is that Honda figured the ST would hurt sales of the GW so they discontinued it to push potential buyers to the one they stuck the engineering dollars in. But it...
