    1984 Honda Magna V65 VF1100C, it's got a crash bar, windshield, Corbin seat, Kerker exhaust, and custom paint with hand-laid pinstripping, and after I dropped it less than 24 hours after buying it, I replaced some of the damaged stock black stuff with shiny new chrome stuff, like the mirrors, plus new chrome and rubber grips with matching highway bars. Anyways, noticed a place that I thought would make a nice backdrop for pictures, got some decent weather, so went and took some pics, figured I'd share them with the rest of the Bike Crew:

    There are 8 of those little pinstripe porn people on the bike, the 3 on the back fender and the 1 the right sidecover I posted, plus 1 on the left side of the tank and 3 more on the top of the tank.

    And I haven't tried it, but it will pull the front wheel up pretty easily from what I've read. I know that the front end does get light in 1st and 2nd under half throttle, those V4's have lots of power and plenty of torque down low. Here's a dyno CYCLE magazine did on the V65 when they came out in 1983:

    I want to get mine dynod, just for shits and giggles. The Kerker 4-1 exhaust with carb rejetting is supposed to make even more power, and it still pulls hard, even though it's 24 years old with almost 50k miles on it, the previous owners took very good care of this bike.
