Anyone have a Honda Recon

Does anybody have a 2 wheel drive Honda Recon. I got one and love it. For a 2 wheel drive I hvae no complaints. I have rode it in major snow, mud, and even raced a Foreman and beat it. I think that it is as good as some of the 4x4's on the market.

Truck: 1990 Ford F-250 5.0 EFI, 4x4 , Longbed, 5 speed w/ Hurst shifter, K&N FIPK, Line-X Bed liner, Ford Racing Valve Covers, 2 1/2 in exhaust w/ 4 inch SS tips, A pillar pod filled with Autometer Pro Comp Ultra Lites , Custom switch box w/ 5 switch panel, and more to come

I had one for 3 years...I was one of the first one's to have one around here when they came out in 98'. I loved the hell out of mine. Great power and torgue due to the engine arrangement. Its a little cramped for bigger guys but still can pull the weight. I now the newer ones have had a lot of updates on them so they could have only gotten better. I used to ride with my buddies and they all hiad 400ex's and I could climb almost every hill they could ever climb if not better than them. I wish I had the time and the money to afford to have a new one.:Thumbup:
