Mine just got to 45000 miles yesterday.  Had 6000 on it when I brought it.  It's a 2001 had it since 2004.  Got 2nd bike in 2012, still liking the Nighthawk.

Did someone say sport touring bike?
One of the things I love about the 'Hawk is that you can make in into what you want! [imghttp://[/img]

General Motorcycle Discussion / Rider Magazine- "No Jerks Allowed"
« Last post by Ace21 on May 26, 2017, 04:26:21 PM »
Just wondering if anyone else has read the article "No Jerks Allowed" in the most recent Rider mag., coming to a mailbox near you? The article (written by Eric Trow of Staysafe.com) has tips that I have not heard before (not saying much) but look forward to trying them out!

I'm keen to keep my riding sharp, and always welcome ways to improve. 

example:
"The smoothest riders keep a very light touch on the handlebars and guide the bike with subtle inputs instead of forceful, tight fisted stabs and tense, stiff arms. As we tell our students, to smoothly steer a motorcycle imagine you are dancing with a child, lightly and tenderly guiding movements."

or this:

What the trick to smooth upshifting? Three overlapping steps and regular practice. Start by preloading the shift lever with your boot (you are wearing boots right?). Apply just enough pressure to suggest the shift, not enough to cause an actual shift to occur without disengaging clutch.  Secondly, when you are ready to make the shift, gently squeeze the clutch lever just far enough to be in the friction zone (not all the way to the handlebar) The preload shift lever will slip effortlessly into the higher gear. Thirdly re-establish smooth and steady throttle as you ease the clutch back out of the friction zone for a silky smooth and silent upshift"

Has anybody determined whether the NH750 can correctly be called a Naked bike? 

Or perhaps just:  A Naked Sports Touring Standard (as created by the dream team at Honda to tick all the boxes).

Heck, you can call it whatever you like.

Your Honda Nighthawk / Re: Black 1992 Honda Nighthawk CB750

Stoked, after two, used Centerstand deals fell through (one was my fault, as money was tight...with the recent move, the other someone simply beat me to), I finally scored a brand new one, from the factory, with free shipping and even got cash back ($10. + $3.75), through my free, new Ebates account (https://go.ebat.es/imsk/MOtZqQhIeD), off MotoSport.com, scoring free MotoSport stickers and calendar, in the process.

Hoping to install in the next 24-48hrs. Install pics to follow.

As a sidebar, I'd been all ready to buy through Partzilla, but they required $149. before offering free S&H, and didn't qualify for cash back via Ebates, whereas MotoSport only required a purchase of $79. to qualify for free S&H, also qualified for Ebates cash back, and I think the 1992 Honda CB 750A Nighthawk Main Stand Set (Centerstand Kit) was a dollar cheaper via MotoSport too, lol.

Ah, I do love the looks of the old 650's.
