    What year is your bike, I am guessing a 78? I had a Black 79 back when new and loved it. Had to trade for a car in the fall cause winter riding in ND is really tough!

    The bike is an '81. Starting in 1980, Honda offered their own fairings and luggage, so I guess my Dad caught the tail end of the aftermarket full-dress craze. I think he added the KG luggage and Vetter Nighstalker in the spring of 1982.

    Had some unseasonably warm weather here in NJ of late, would love to take her out, but worried about residual salt on the roads getting sprayed up in the bike's nooks and crannies.

    Very cool. Needless to say, I'm a fan.

    By the way, in the early 90s, I had a 1981 CB750 custom (no fairing or bags). Fast bike, or at least it felt fast to me.

    Back in the saddle - we had a couple nice days here in NJ on Sunday and Monday and I was able to take her out a couple times. Even went past the same spot I got creamed last September (about the only way I can go to my buddy's house, and I had to show him how the bike looks of course :)). Was fun, but I have to admit, I was a bit fearful. Maybe that's a good thing...lots of idiots out there.
