Ya, that's a Rune. Don't see many of them in in their day they were not to badly priced for what you got. You probably pay more for them now than you would have new.

They were priced in the mid 20's new. To me that seems kinda pricey for a naked tuned 1800. They were definatly an aquired taste! :lol:

I remember seeing one of those in a Honda Shop over in Missouri when they first came out, man alive it sure did look cool at the time, it looked extremely heavy though, something I just don't have a desire to move around, with my knee's the way they are my 1100 is the perfect size for me right now.. I also remember going down to a Honda shop here in SA. tx back in the early 80's and I remember drooling on the Goldwing and the Yamaha Virago brand new.. :D

I would love to have one of those Runes, but not enough room in the wallet. ;-]

Living in the city is saving me from myself. On street parking is a sure cure for M.B.S. :P

Hey Riff Raff, a lot of these guy's are going to the Wing dingy thing in Indiana, you never said how the rest of your trip went, I assume it was all great? :D

The weather that week was the best of the four years I've been going! We had a morning rain the first morning after I got there. From there on out it was mid 70's with full sun by day and 40's low 50's at night! great for campfires! :D Only 50 weeks to the 90th bike week! Can"t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last time I was in the local stealership (they're a Honda/Yamaha/Suzuki/everything else dealership), they had a nice looking used Rune on the floor. Don't remember the price.

They also had a very sad, tired looking GL1200 with 110,000 miles, and a $6,000 price tag. In their dreams.

That dealer must have been hard up for cash flow. I worked in dealers for almost 20 years. Anything with that kind of mileage would never make the floor. That's wholesale material. :roll:
