What's that Greg.
Where did you find it. Leaning in that direction. Not enough months in the year for me. I missed our motorcycle show this past weekend and I certainly did not see anything like that when I picked up my GS mirrors in the showroom. Must have gotten a private showing

Re: Fear leads to the dark side or F6B

So let me get this right, if I pull up to a restaurant in my blacked out F6B, some hot chick will check me out with a come hither smile? Okay, just wanted to make sure.

Damn if Honda isn't bringing their A game with the F6B. Nice lines and wicked sharp.

Re: Fear leads to the dark side or F6B

I just find those stubby windshields retarded.
Talk about something being totally useless.
Looks like they drove it under a tractor trailer, and lost a few things as a result.

Re: Fear leads to the dark side or F6B

There's an optional taller windshield available, but I agree - why bother with the stubby except for some sort of "style" statement.

Having said that, if I was in the market for a new cruiser/tourer this would be on my short list. Kind of like an updated Valk.

The interesting thing is that Honda has dug deep into their history with this "naked" version - all the way back to the very beginning of the Gold Wing!

I think it's a winner and will definitely appeal to much younger demographics than the Wal Mart greeter crowd.

My thoughts exactly...I think they missed a marketing opportunity by not bringing back the Valkyre name.

So no F6B for Ron, then?

Sorry, couldn't resist. Good looking ride.
