I don’t know, he didn’t specify, he just said “Honda’s engineering” my response was directed at that.

No difference after you quoted? "(Moto Related)" doesn't disappear?

Just to clarify...
I was speaking in general terms about Honda's engineering in all of the endeavors they pursue. Aviation, automotive, motorcycles, F1, everything.

Generally speaking Honda has a reputation for doing a better than average job of building quality, reliable, well-engineered vehicles. The fact that there are exceptions doesn't negate the rule.

On the other hand the only 2 Hondas I have ever owned were given to me for free so...

Leave the touring bikes to men. You boys can have your little sport bikes. Most of you have never done 900 mile days anyway.

That's a round trip to Waller and a day of riding. Respectable.

The 1100 was a round trip from Birmingham to Sweetwater Tennessee, with a 300 mile loop through the woods. I left at 4 am and got home at 11:30pm. Not to be repeated since.
