Thanks for posting that article, good read. Got to appreciate Honda's ability to lead the way into new bike designs and comfort. Being a Baby boomer which says I am an older rider I appreciate that Honda trying to keep me riding. Last year I decided to consider going back to a cruiser but dreaded going back to a twin engine bike. Honda must have read my mind with this new bike. Cheers Jim
lol....interesting to say the least! I would have to say that the "un exciting" thing was not something I agreed with but that is why there are different bikes for different people!! Thanks for posting it!
Another thing in this article I don't agree with -- he says the suspension is "on the soft side". Compared to what, a pile of cinderblocks? This suspension is anything but soft -- in fact, surprisingly not soft for a bike that's at least part tourer. Not complaining, just not agreeing with that assessment.
I also don't concur with his complaints about "limited seating position". I've yet to own a bike that doesn't have a limited seating position. In fact, that's the biggest reason why I never seriously considered a Valkyrie (the old one -- different reasons for not considering the new one). Anyway, the comfort of this bike out of the box makes its limited seating position much more tolerable than the seating position of any other bike I've owned.
