My other bike Honda CB919

For some odd reason I really dig this bike. I used to hate the look of these. Now I really like it.

Is that a set of training wheels and wheelie bar built into one device? ;^)

Nice bike!

Does it have a bit of an identity issue, being so green and wanting to be real red?

+1 on the V-Max. The ads are what got me when it first came out......"You don't go out looking for races on this bike, You go out trolling for victims" that along with photos of smoky burnouts sold me then and there.

Oh, and VERY nice bike Mango !!!

Gray-haired riders don’t get that way from pure luck.

I bought Renthal bars for it gave it a little wider stance. The mirrors are ugly but functional due to me having wide shoulders I can see around them. The grips are for a BMX bike. They were the only green grips I could find. I know it's a ugly bike. I think this color was also voted as most ugliest color but Honda. Not many were sold. Least that's what I read on the Internet
