  • Bike: 89' NT650
Decisions.
« on: June 17, 2016, 09:00:23 PM »
I recently picked up my 85' NH CB700s which brings the tally up to 4 total bikes now. All running, titled, insured, and Honda's. I started my motorcycle journey with older honda cb's I own a 73' CB500K2 and 76' CB550K. Maintaining the older bikes is a bit time consuming but rewarding all the same. I then rescued an 89' NT650 Hawk GT from being parted out, I fell in love with it on paper first - lightweight, single side swingarm, V-twin, sporty and touring comfort. Suspension was fully upgraded beyond where I can take and it can handle everything the 647cc throws at it. Now I venture into this world of the NightHawk CB700s with a 696cc engine and being shaft driven I can't wait to put it through the paces, but I will have to as I am waiting for parts to make the lost but not forgotten bike road-worthy again... And just as the title says Decisions need to made.

noticed all your bikes are medium displacement.
Maybe 1100 GL standard goldwing to hit highways at ease? currently that's what I am looking for.Something less revy when cruising on high speeds.

The Bikes are actually pairs, for his and hers as my wife rolls with me just not on the back lol. We have the old CB's for farting around town, I picked up the NT650 couple years ago for the backroads and short freeway rides. I am planning on passing the NT650 to my wife as I get the Nighthawk CB700s on the road. Father in law has an 09' Goldwing for anything more long distance, but with young children long cruises aren't in the cards for awhile. Just not enough time in the day, if you know what I mean.

Love the Hawk GT fantastic bike which Suzuki basically copied the idea of SV650
I had the SV and after replacing trash stock suspension the thing was on rails even on fast turns.Great bikes both.
Hawk is collectable not many around.
