@30,000 miles mine still feels like new. Only thing is, I can ride it a lot better now.
I was coming home from my Girlfriend's house last evening. I turned onto my favorite stretch of 62. 1/4 mile down the road sat an Indiana State Trooper. Luckily, I was only doing about 60-65. Maybe he was on his break, he didn't budge. OOOOK. Take it easy.... A few miles later I was crusin about 80. It's a wide deserted/empty road. Just runnin a nice relaxed pace, enjoying the evening curves. Nice right hander, scccrrr. Cool, never got a knee down there before. Shortly after that curve is another one just like it, smooth, wide, clean. If I can do it once, scccrrr. I did it twice. Made my day. (I have put pucks on my textile pants, makes it a lot easier.)
As far as I'm concerned, Honda really nailed it with the 919.
