Honda should bring back the NH and use your bike as the poster boy/girl

It took me 17 years. Just passed 100,000 miles today during a pleasant back country ride.
In addition to the usual wear and tear items, here are some other items that required attention:
42,000 Steering head bearings replaced
78,000 Upper cam chain tensioner replaced
82,000 Tachometer replaced
92,000 Starter replaced
 
And, yes, it still runs excellent.

General Motorcycle Discussion / Re: Best retro bike? 2018 Kawasaki Z900

I test rode the regular Z900.  If the Z900RS has the same ergonomics, we old guys aren't going to like it at all.  Forward lean angle was okay but the knee bend backward was very bad.  I'm 6'1". 


It is hard to find a standard bike these days which is as comfortable as the Nighthawks of the '90s.  Ones I've found are the new Valkyrie, the Ducati Diavel, and you could add the Triumph Rocket 3, although the foot position is slightly forward on it, making it a cruiser rather than a standard, but it is only slightly forward. Probably next in line is the Triumph Bonneville.

I always enjoy the adventures of Pants.  We must ride the great state of Arkansas again.
