    All Honda's

    In reverse order...

    Honda F6B
    Honda ST1300
    Honda Pacific Coast
    Honda V65 Magna

    That makes 4 bikes since the late 80's. The F6B is my favorite!

    The F6B will likely take the place of my 2003 BMW R1100S BCR...

    It's a bucket list thing; I've always liked the F6B since first seeing it back in Nov 2012 and decided to add one to the livery for a while. Hopefully it will be a keeper. Not having ABS and cruise in a bike this big is a bit odd; even my '04 BMW R1150RT and '13 Harley touring bikes have had both.

    The bikes that have come before...

    1972 Hodaka 100
    1971 Yamaha MX 360
    1971 Honda Elsinore CR250
    1972 Honda Elsinore CR125
    1977 Honda CB550F SuperSport
    1978 Honda CB750
    1980 Honda CBX
    1984 Honda VR100R
    1987 Honda CBR1000F
    1998 Honda CBR1100XX
    2003 BMW R1100S BCR (Still have this one)
    2004 BMW R1150RT
    2011 Harley FXDWG (Just sold this one)
    2013 Harley FLHRSE5 / Road King CVO (Blue I RIP; DWO encounter)
    2013 Harley FLHRSE5 / Road King CVO (Still have Blue II)

    Moving to F6B from Victory Cruiser -- new to Forum

    Enjoying the transition mentioned above. Looking for advise:
    --need a recommendation for heel shifter (missing that function);
    --already ordered taller wind screen Cee Bailey;
    --probably will replace stock seat with Russell Day Long;
    --any and all comments or suggestions about changes and upgrades appreciated.

    thanks all.

    Oldies but goodies – a BMW R90S and a BMW R75/5 before that. I like horizontally opposed cylinders with a shaft drive: the most logical and efficient powertrain layout, with the lowest CG. The Honda F6B shares that configuration and felt 'right' from day one after years of riding BMWs.

    Bikes, bikes, bikes

    1974 AMC "Harley Davidson" thing made in Italy: 175 CC, enduro, electric and kick start, strange thing that my Dad bought us. I'd love to know who the heck really made it, and why.

    1984 or 5 Honda CB-650 -- nice bike, shaft drive 100,000 miles

    1988 Kawasaki 250 Eliminator, used, fun city commuter bike. Put 20,000 miles on it, sold for more than I bought it for. Fantastic little thing.

    1996 Honda Pacific Coast 800. Fantastic severely underrated bike. In some ways my F6B reminds me of this bike: smooth, 5 speed, rear bags, comfortable, somewhat sporty handling, only the F6B is much better.

    2001 Kawasaki Concours - no matter what I did this bike had the worst vibration in handlebars.

    2006 Yamaha FJ-1300 - fun, top heavy sport bike with bags and shaft drive. Great bike but too tall for me. A blast on high speed curves and Interstates. Painful commuter. Dropped this bike on its side so many times it had to go.

    2009 Suzuki Burgman AN-650Exec (hit by 2 cars that crashed into me at a stoplight in 2013). Great commuter, otherwise kind of boring and not too great handling on curves. Terrible suspension for highway distance riding. Insurance check got me a.....
    2013 Suzuki Burgman AN-650 replacement. Redesign made it a better looking commuter with better shifting automatic and slightly smaller storage, but otherwise exactly the same. Biggest weakness for these two bikes is long distance ride highway suspension in rear. Pavement joints pounding on I-84 in NY actually cracked the Givi luggage rack I had on the 13 bike. Suzuki replacement was a stronger rack, but I know why it broke, really.

    1994 (ish) Suzuki GSXR 750. What a POS. Only had it for a few months.

    2000 Yamaha YZF R1. My ultimate dream bike as a 19 year old kid. Yep, I crashed it, lol. And I fixed it.

    2002 Yamaha YZF R1. Bought brand new as a 20 year old kid. Didn't crash it but watched it get towed away from the back seat of a police car (twice! I'm a slow learner)

    2001 Yamaha YZF R1 (there's a pattern here, lol) Put a bunch of miles on this one. Sold it the year I got married, but not for the usual reasons. Just needed the money.

    1979 Suzuki GS 1000. Had the itch but no money and the price was right.

    2000 Yamaha Roadstar. Great bike. Totaled when I got smacked by an F-350.

    2012 Yamaha Roadstar (replacement for above bike). Another great bike for what it was, but not really right for my riding preferences.

    2006 Yamaha YZF R1 (still have it. Track only bike-finally learned my lesson on these crazy things).

    2004 Roadstar. Loud, blast around town and shiny type of deal.

    Currently on my 2015 F6B Deluxe

    Trading in my 06 Wing for a 16 F6B on Friday. Riding from Rio Rancho, NM to Russellville, AR to pick up the bike. Already have a Madstad on order.

    Ride Safe,
