"Bugs" 'i' hope you like stories cause 'i'm about to tell a 'true' one:

I rode one of these when I managed the Honda MC Store in 1979.



Very few six cylinder motorcycles have ever been made but this is one of them, and possibly the most iconic, the Honda CBX 1000. The engine dwarfs the rest of the bike, you can't help but stare at the engine, it's an incredible piece of engineering. And if you have a look on YouTube for the sound these bikes make you will be amazed, they sound like F1 engines!
I ordered 3 for delivery to the store. We couldn't wait to get one serviced and out on the road. Kenny finished assembly and took it out for a test run. When he returned it was my turn. He said Terry this ain't like nothing you've ever ridden before, watch yourself.
I took it out on main street and headed out of town. About 1 mi. out there's a bridge overpass over I 74. I got it up to 150 MPH and there was plenty left, so I cranked it.
When I got to the down part of the bridge I was still going up~~~looked down and was 4 to 6 feet off the road~~~I said a quick prayer: God if you get me down alive
I'll never do any thing this 'stupid' again.(( That promise I've kept )) and me writing this proves He kept his.
I headed back still shaking in my boots, Kenny said I was as white as a ghost when I pulled in the shop. Then he said;
"I told you so!"
I sold the first 2 within a week, both guys were killed on them and also ones son riding with him. That did it for me, I would never sell another one and traded the 3rd one off to a dealer in Versailles, IN. I found out 2 weeks later he had sold it and the guy got killed on it.
The next year Honda had it revamped to not be so fast and quick.
