Many times, I have wondered why there was no Honda forum. So it is refreshing to me to see a dedicated forum. I figured it must be because other than the hordes of scooter type Honda bikes on Thai roads, there were not many larger capacity Honda bikes roaming the sealed roads and off road tracks around Thailand. I wonder if this new Honda forum will get much input as I noticed the Suzuki forum remained inactive for a long time. I am a true Honda fan and have owned many Hondas over the years. My stable of Hondas is now made up of, 1 x 2010 CRF450R, 1 x 2011 CRF 450X, 1 x 2011 CRF250X, 2 x 2008 CBR1000RR, 1 x 2009 CBR1000RR and 1 x 2011 CBR1000RR. Therefore, you could say I am a Honda fan. The X model bikes are all street legal and come with mirrors, indicators, horn etc. In relation to the suggestion that Honda bikes may have Chinese made parts, I have a very good working knowledge of the parts and mechanical side of Honda bikes and so far, I have never come across a part that shows it is made in china. That’s not to say some of the wiring or other parts may have come from China, as how is it possible to know where Honda sources all its components. I just hope not though.
