thanks for the warm welcome.
great site you all have here. thanks for sharing so freely all of the information.
yes, 4200 miles on an '04 is kinda sad. I put over 20,000 on my last bike in 13 months, just sold it a couple months back. so i'm confident that this Honda will not get neglected any longer.
I look forward to riding the Honda, haven't had one in many years. My last 2 bikes have been BMW's, which i've thoroughly enjoyed. Before that I had a 2001 Suzuki bandit 1200 which was also an enjoyable bike. The Honda seems smoother than I remember the bandit being, but still has some vibes. I'll probably look to replace the bars with some Renthals or similar.
I have been doing all of my own maintenance, the BMW's have been a joy to work on with their heads completely exposed and valve adjustments made so easily. I've not done valve adjustment on anything else so I'm sure I'll be doing my research before doing this one.
I will change the oil tonight or tomorrow.
