Default This Honda is NOT going down!

Saw this at Home Depot the other day. The bike has custom made boxes, a piece of wood holding the horn, tons of little doodads.
And two trailer jacks.

Oh no, I should have stayed out there and filmed the embarkation preparations. I bet he is a regular so I will watch for it.

It's a CX, I believe. I had one in pieces in my garage for awhile.

Same engine, but that's a molested SilverWing. A smaller Goldwing Honda sold for a while. The stock luggage that came on it was larger than whats on it now, and they came with a full fairing.

I rode one of the dreaded automatic CX's back in the day. That was the first Silverwing I had seen.

No it is some sort of work-related box, like those side boxes are. Notice the aluminum platform everything rests on and the jacks are mounted in. The whole back end of it is quite industrial
