Just chiming in to say the same.  I start the day with most of a pot of coffee and some NPCP.  Love the stats!  Happy New Year!

Thanks Rob for your hard work, you are much appreciated. I always enjoy your articles from Canada, there is always something to learn. Might buy a Honda PC800 next year, never knew they existed until your post.

Having DD’d a ‘91 for eleven years, I can suggest a few caveats. First, the recommended interval for timing belt and valve adjustment is 60K. I did mine at 90K with no problems. The valves are adjusted with shims, so you need to find a shim assortment kit.

Would have taken over a Chevy Aveo, heck, we “upgraded” to a Cavalier sedan to avoid an Aveo once.
