Well it's just a little over a year since I purchased my black cherry Rune. Here are some of my thoughts, not that the're worth much. I've ridden for 10 years and never been more thrilled to ride than when I saddle up my Honda Rune. This is the most fabulous bike in the world. The looks- I always get complimented about the styling and most people want to know what kind of bike it is. The ride- I just get giddy riding the dang thing. Man, what a rush and I don't even go very fast. It was more money than I ever thought I would spend on a bike, but what an absolute bargain. Bargain because there is not another bike on the planet that comes close to matching the Rune's styling, rideability, dependability, and all out fun of ownership. If something were to go wrong, which it hasn't, I've got Honda parts and techs to rely upon. I've enjoyed trolling thru the Runeriders.com forum and appreciate everyone's input and time. I just wanted to say how glad I was to have purchased the Rune and I'm looking forward to the Rune Rally in Sept. Thanks again.
