Afternoon all, New to the forum, living in Maine. Hoping to learn some about the older Honda twins. Previous bike, many years ago, was a GL1100. Heavy, shaft drive, water cooled. At my advanced age thinking more about something lighter and a motorcycle instead of a two wheeled car. :)

I am sure you will get a lot of advice so I will throw in my 2 cents worth. I would suggest the CB or Cm 400 or 450s. The hondamatics. They are smooth , easy to ride , easy to maintain. They will cruise all day at 70 with 2 up and give you about 50 miles to the gallon. Cost about 1500 and up depending on condition .Parts are sometimes a problem but you will have that with any vintage Honda. The electronics are a little difficult with the built in safety features but there are people on this site that can help you with them. Weigh about 480 lbs wet. Just my thoughts.

Cb500t canibal.....someone called it a turd due to the brown colour.

I have a dissatisfied customer report on one of those, but not all owners are the same. Some actually change the oil and clean the filter etc..
