I remember when you got that  now after seeing this post again -- forgot it was in 2014 (shortly before the Picnic Outing).

Tell me about it.  Still love this bike as much as I did the day I got it.  This one will be staying in my garage forever.

Picked up a GoPro and was testing the sound quality. Love the triple sound.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

One potential weak spot of the 675 based triple is the somewhat delicate shift shaft. It can sometimes make shifting difficult or worse it can break during an accident or sometimes even during more mild events like,  well,  shifting.  I don't particularly enjoy splitting engine cases if I can avoid it so...

Sato Racing makes a brace of sorts to help with the issue. Supposed to make shifts feel more positive but I haven't had a chance to try it yet.

I can see where that would make things better for sure.I put a pivot brace on the wing and it made it so much better I can't imagine Honda not doing it in the first place.Night and day difference but its a stupid design to begin with.
