05 Rune

Jeff
Besides the 5 in the VIN ....did you note any changes?.... I think someone on this board said the HONDA on the rear fender was raised lettering... true? Anything else?

Future Rune?

Hmmm, you say that Rune was built on June 4th, 2005, and it's in a dealer's showroom? Wow, Honda's so efficient they've already built the Rune's of the future! :wink:

As keeper of the VIN List I noticed one other difference in the VIN Number, The Seq. portion after the "A" starts with a 1 ..... 100234. The 04's started with a 0.

Checking the 04 build dates the end around March / April 04, so it looks like Honda started producing 05's in June of 2004.

Honda's BS and handling of info about the Rune ... one year only - limited to one per dealer.. yes we are making a 05 ... no we are not making a 05... etc. is the one thing that makes me wonder if a made a "good" purchase.

It would be kind of nice when you are talking to somebody about the bike that you could say ... It was a one time / one production run / special build by Honda. Not .... they kept making them until they flooded the market and pissed off everone that bought into the "Limited" banner.

The only thing limited about the Rune is that I am limited to owning "1".
Since I have never seen a Rune on the road other than RedValk's at his house, I still think the bike is kind of limited. But, rarity does not make something precious if it is not precious to begin with. This means I did not buy into the "limited" moniker. I bought into the Rune after I turned the corner onto I-26 during my 'test ride' that Luke's of Summerville let me take.
