This is very cool. Like a Google Streetview but of the Honda Collection Hall.

That's neat, found the PC800 and the GL1000.

Found the PC800, and my VF750F (both in strange colors not available here), but I never found a GL1100, GL1200, GL1500 or GL1800. Anyone find any of those?

I liked this so much, I put a version of it on this site - and made it scale up to full screen if you like! See it here: Honda Collection Hall

I wonder why they included a few Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha machines?

Thanks for posting this.

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing - perhaps they used Honda engines?

I can't actually recall Honda offering two stroke motors on machines bigger than 125cc, and certainly not triples as in the Kawasaki on view here.

I would say that those competitors bikes were probably the motivators for Honda improvement. Kawasaki triples were awesome bikes in their day, and go for pretty decent $$ today.

That's great because once the snow starts flying I'll be taking a virtual trip to Japan.

How do we find the link other than in this thread? I haven't checked the main page yet.

I put it in the menu under the "Member Pictures" link. I may have to restructure my menu somewhat...

I notice the only Goldwing I could find is a GL1000. I wonder if that's because Honda doesn't consider the US-manufactured GL1100-GL1800's not true Hondas worthy of representation in their museum?
