Info provided from 1988 motorcyclist mag, following are some comments from Nick Ienatsch and Mitch Boehm:
This bike makes mediocre riders good and good riders great. Wide open at willow's turn 8, the bike sat there at full lean, calmly soaking up pavement ripples, seemingly bored with the whole affair. Circulating Willow quickly was easier on this Honda than on any other bike I've ever ridden.
Sounds like a pretty good bike. I've ridden some 10/12 years ago and just loved them. AND they are a HECK of alot more comfortable than today's rockets. If you want more info, just drop me an email.
