hhmmm.... interesting old Honda in craigslist - September 3, 2013, 08:49 PM

hhmmm...
I am looking for some cheap, simple transportation...
This looks pretty decent and you just don't go much lower than 2200 any more for something that actually RUNS.. lol..

I need a standard for commuting cause a lifetime of dirtbike faceplants has left me with almost no range of motion in turning my head from side to side.. lol..

Hey, I thought you said it was an OLD bike?


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

I like the sabres. I would prefer one as a commuter to a superhawk (terrible gas mileage on the vtr combined with a small tank, I found it annoying as a purely practical bike. Only put 41k miles on mine, which is low for me). There's a big internet group for the sabmags.

Yep... I was getting 100-125 miles per tank depending on riding style for that tank.

Were those part of the "top end oiling issue" bikes Honda had experienced with their V4s in the 80s?

I'm asking for a friend.

ya, I really just want a commuter bike that I don't have to fill every other day. I don't want a beast either.. Hell, I was even thinking about one of the newer automatics.. lol.. Nothing worse than having to work a stiff clutch forever in stop and go traffic.. hate that.. lol..

I'll be in the minority, but CVT on a scooter or bike (or DCT) is a godsend for cruising around and junk. I love them.

You lose some of the involvement, no question. To me, it makes riding super relaxing.

I'm holding out for the V65 Sabre, but this one looks CLEAN! The whole V-Series are legendary engines. The upper-end oiling issues is pretty simple to fix with a kit that drills in to the top end.

I've never met a guy with a V65 that didn't think his bike wouldn't break the sound barrier. Still, almost 30 years later, those guys have a serious hard on for Vmax owners. The ZL900 crowd just gets laughed at by both sides.
