Your Honda Nighthawk / Re: My '96 CB750 "Dragon Bike"
« on: January 03, 2018, 08:12:46 PM »
Pants-I don't think you will get flamed here unless you say Harley is the end all be all and everything else is trash.  No one with an open mind would say that any NH or any other bike from the 70s, 80s, or 90s is better than modern day machines.  Just like us old guys talk about how great cars were from our era, I know the Detroit muscle cars  I drooled over in the early to mid 70s don't hold a candle to todays cars in any comparison.   I have a friend who has owned Mustangs since the 70s and still thinks his late 90's 'stang is bad ass, but when Ford released the 4cylinder turbo version that puts out more power than his v8 he was disheartened.  We grow fond of our machines and the simplicity and dependability of the NH is what has kept me riding a 750 for ten years.  I have ridden your 1st FJR and several other newer bikes with a better spec sheet, but the kind of riding I like is done quite well on a NH.   If I had the $$ I would like to have Jay Leno's garage, but since I don't got to find what does it for me within the budget.  To each his own.

Quite a year Pants.  Wish you well in 2018.

Looks like a great trip.  So much to experience and too little time to do it.   Thanks for sharing your   adventure.

Good times when traveling with Pants.  Glad there was no Pants on the ground.

I have not used my flickr account in almost 8 years, so needless to say I forgot about it while using photobucket since 2010.  Looks like it's  back to flickr.

Very true Pants.  And now I am back on NHF on Mozilla and the pic does not show.  Time to add more smiles on the 750.

Can any of you computer whiz kids help this old fart solve this image hosting quandary.  The link above will take you to a pic I posted in August from google +.  It shows on my computer no matter which browser I use, but the pic of my 88888 odometer from 8:14am today only shows from google chrome browser.   Doesn't make sense to me.

I'm no computer techie, but I started using Google + to host images when photobucket went for the $$.  I posted this shot from the google chrome browser with no problem from google +.

Changed valve cover gasket, washers, and spark plugs last night.  3rd gasket  for my 750, 2nd installed by me.  Now ready to ride on a 70* December day.

BMW R1200R.  Love my NH 750 but shaft drive, abs brakes, etc are in the future for me.  I have found several used 1200s in the $5k range.

Well that didn't work.  If the link doesn't work took a pic when my NH rolled over 88,888 miles recently.  Would much rather ride than try to navigate my way through the wonderful world of computers.

So many great bikes to choose from now.  Yamaha has really given us some great bikes.  I really like the 1200r also, if I outlast my NH then a 1200r will be in my garage.

I enjoyed your report.  Nice scenery pics.  The House on the Rock looks very interesting.  Nothing like a few days on the road on a motorcycle.

Best way to spend Black Friday Pants.  Did any birds drop a bomb on you?

Quite a few good standards to choose from, but for me the NH750 is still the one.

 Congrats.  I hope to hit that milestone in 2018 or '19.  Your NH still looks great.

Thanks for the report Dan.  Here in TX our leaves did not start turning until late Oct and are still in full color.

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

That vf1000 is awesome, but I would prefer the no fuss NH too.

Welcome to NHF.  Good luck with reviving the 550.  Your screen name made me think back to what a great album Aja was.
