Had a '78 back in the day. Windjammer fairing and Hondaline detachable bags. Was it ever a blast to rip the bags off and cruise around town with all that chrome flashing. But for traveling you had to have the space. Jump ahead 30 years and the same rules apply. But pretty hard to rip the plastic off the SE. So what to do? 2 Bike Syndrome, of course. Now I've got the best of both worlds. One to pull the better half and the camper down the road and the Fat Lady to light it up when I just want to go out and feel like a kid again.

Mine is bit more nimble without all the crap on the back.

I would like it to be somewhere in between. Like the Valkyrie Interstate. But they discontinued that too. One thing I've noticed is whenever Honda winds up with a successful model, they tend to discontinue it. Just recently they have discontinued all versions of the Valkyrie, the Magna, the Shadow Spirit 1100, the CB750 Nighthawk, The CB250 Nighthawk, and the VLX600. Farther back, the GL/CX500/650, the Nighthawk 700, and a number of 400/450 models. The 450s were perfect beginner bikes for a full sized adult, and could be kept around longer. Unlike a 250, they could be ridden pretty much where any other motorcycle could. They nearly put themselves out of business in the U.S. pushing the VTX1800, a bike that even a few owners told me they didn't like.
