Yeah, (it was Fairbanks to West Virginia and back in three weeks) I've owned two of the things and put LOTS of miles on them.  Great bikes; quiet and comfortable and they handle great.  I rode my '89 through the two weeks of MSF Instructor certification training classes.  Back in the day (as Levi said) Two Brothers was doing amazing things w/ the Honda NT647 Hawk GT.  The PC drive train is a very similar 800cc  and supposedly they got one with the intent to work the same magic into it.  I guess they worked and worked and experimented with all kinds of combinations and couldn't get the thing to run for crap... except in bone stock exhaust and intake configuration with some minor jetting mods.  Put Progressive Suspension springs in the forks, keep good tires on it , and ride the crap out of it. 

I plan to keep it bone stock except for welding a hole in the exhaust.....and maybe cupholder...Should have it on the road next week and will daily it until its too cold .....so far it has 95,000 miles....

I traded a pretty plain Jane flat topped AR for a Cb750k with a weird clutch cable

The p/o snapped a cable on the road and a atv shop got him going again.

At 95k miles the places where the body parts join may be a bit creaky and squeaky, especially on a '89.  They made some changes with the '90 and later models. I'll bet that in a short time you'll really like it as a daily rider.  And that trunk is something that you'll soon wonder how you ever lived without it.
