I've been lurkin' here since August of 06, and finally decided to join the fun. I'm 53 been riding since I was 9. All on Hondas till now [06 speedy] Last bike was a 00 RC51 and I just couldn't ride it long enough. About 250 miles and I was ready to crawl off. Not ready for a cruiser... THEN I SAW A SPEEDY!!! Called the dealer and asked if they had one and what it was like. They told me to come ride it and they knew I'd buy it. They were right. I love it. It has enough bits to keep you looking at it and enough performance to keep you intrested and enough comfort to keep you on it. And it satisfies the 5 second rule. :-D
