My Road King engine is still in pieces at the dealer because of crank damage. They have the parts now but unfortunately queue is such that I will get my bike in August. So I got this GTS today to ease my pain.

28500 miles on the clock with new tyres and everything works.

Nice. I love early-mid 90's bikes.

Beautiful. Hard to believe it’s 25 years old. After riding the Yamaha this summer, you might end up selling the Harley! wink

I remember that one, it has that crazy front suspension correct? I recall Yamaha released it's 1000 with that new front end that allegedly worked like magic but was too odd for people to warm up to. I recall one magazine saying something like "groundbreaking, while people lined up to not buy it". lol

I wanted that bike when it first came out. FI, ABS and funky suspension. I had a ZX6 at the time.

I recall that bike well too. That year I briefly considered the GTS1000, but ended up buying a Yamaha FJ1200 ABS model. I had wanted an FJ since it came out as an FJ1100, and it was significantly cheaper than the GTS1000. I still regret selling that FJ1200..

Yes..... That's it.

I've never actually seen one.

Just like I have NEVER EVER EVER seen an actual Honda Rune in person...


Of course, I have NEVER seen an NM4 anywhere, ever - either.

WHAT HAS THE HONDA DESIGN DEPARTMENT BEEN SMOKING?!?!?
