My Father in Law, age 46 is looking to replace his 1976 CB750k with something "a little more modern" so he says. I'd like to at least see him get something with EFI as I still dont think his carbs are right on his 750
He rides around town a fair amount, commuting to work and such but really enjoys getting out on the open road, and taking a few long trips a year 2up with his wife. His old honda has a vetter fairing with barn door, and he's added hard bags and a back rest so he's not going to want to replace it with anything that doesnt offer these amenities.
He's ridden my K1200RS, not enough to really get used to it, just tooled around town. He says it feels way too agressive in the ergo's, and it's more power than he needs. He was impressed, but it's not what he needs. On paper, the R1100RT makes sense to me for him, he's not wanting to spend alot of cash, it's easier to work on, more upright, reasonably priced, and even reasonably light.
What do you guys think? And could somebody pass on a few places to look for these used besides cl, ebay, cycletrader and the like?
