Just went to the bike show here in Vancouver. Honda has some nice bikes, they lead in technology and have tons of models to choose from. I've always thought that for what Honda offers in terms of refinement, they lack in character. But I'm one of those guys that when I ride a bike, I want to feel like I'm riding a bike. A little vibe and rumble is a good thing.

Lovin every minute of it!

Avande - I LIKE your description of where you are, but wouldn't
"A BIT further North, Pacific Northwest" be MORE accurate...?

I think your description would 'work' for Alaska....

Typical rHonda, always following what Kawasaki do, no original ideas of their own

Is the Crossrunner ever going to make it to North America?

Having traded in my 06 VFR that I bought new in 06 for the Versys, I would love to be able to at least test ride this one. Love the v4.

I enjoy the v4 motors. I had a nc24 (1986 vfr400r). But I never bought an interceptor because of the weight. This one is no exception.

I'm down to 1 bike now. A Gen 1 Crossrunner. Yes that V4 motor is something special. When the VTEC kicks in at around 6,500rpm it's like a 2 stroke. Then you get the power band at 11,000rpm. Addictive.

Agree completely. I've never cared to have my bike to look like a vintage can opener.
