IMPRESSIVE!

WOW! You can definitely tell a difference in height. Looks really good! Kinda how mine sits with my big ass on it :D

Although, must say I won't be trying this mod. Drilling, Grinding... :eek: I definitely see myself messing something up, but man it looks good!

Those are some cool bikes. I always wondered what happend to them. Guess there were not enough sales. I looked at them on the show room floor years ago and they were monsters. I had just bought a Shadow Ace Deluxe right before they came out. :)

That is a 'HONDA RUNE'. Their Factory Custom. Other than redoing the seat myself and making highway peg mounts that's just the way they came from the factory. They only made them for 04 and 05. I bought my first one in July of 03 when they first came out. Black Cherry. They had a beefed up 1800 Goldwing motor...including 6 injectors instead of two like the Wing. Pulled like a freight train. I ended up with 3 of them...one of each color. Not all at the same time...hell they were $26,000 each. GREAT bike...one of my favorites!

Here's pics of the other two.



Nice.. not to stray too far from the topic (too late !), but...
hmmm... look at the mirrors on the Rune, now look at the mirrors on the Fury.

Look at the muffler styling on the Rune, now look at the muffler styling on the new VFR1200...

The Rune foreshadowed some things to come...

Now, if they would put a springer front end on a Fury, they could......

No..there's plenty of clearance. I put about 100 miles on it before the rains came. No difference in handling that i can tell. No difference in the ride. When just sitting on it...it feels like it's lower than it looks.

If any of you has had a Yamaha Roadstar or Roadstar Warrior and was on the forums you probly know about the 'Flip and grind'. That's how we lowered them ourselves...free. I did all five of my Roadstars that way and my two Warriors that way.





Take the shock/spring assy off...remove the relay arm from the assy...turn it around backwards...grind a notch in the upper part of it for shock head clearance and re-assemble. Instant 2" drop for a few hours work.

Similar to the Fury...just a different shock setup. Relay arm...no relay arm.
Thanks for the info! Will do it over the winter.

Amazing lookin' bike

I've heard mention of 'Runes' here and there; the sales guy where I bought my fury said at the end they had to pretty much give them away at barebones cost just to get them outta the show room, but now that I've actually seen a couple good pics of them, I gotta say that thing is actually kinda beautiful, almost artistic, in a wierd freight-train kinda way :rolleyes:
