As with everything, Archie, it is your decision—or, in Yodan, your decision it is. Others have taken the path of refusal and no harm has come to them. Although, that said, one bought a Suzuki, another had his bike fall on him in the rain and the mud and yet another had a set forcibly installed at CB1100 rally #1.

Keep us posted on your ruminations.

By the way, it is a very pretty bike and I hope you both travel many happy kilometres together.

Heresy!

Actually, I'm with you guys. No RLET's for me either.

I feel a disturbance in the Force. As if thousands of CBs suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

If you come to a fork in the road, take it!

If RLET's offered anything of value Honda would have provided them with the CB. Your disdain for these silly rubber holdovers from the days of hot pants, leisure suits and go go boots shows you are a person of impeccable taste and breeding.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

It matters not if it is the RLETs you want. It matters only if the RLETs want you.

Honestly the only thing I want to add is a tail bag. I love the bike in its natural form.

Congratulations Archie, that new CB looks awesome.

... and as for those RLETs, who needs em? Although once I wish a guy riding an Z900 had RLETs fitted when he misjudged the gap lane splitting whilst I was stopped at some traffic lights in my Pontiac. A set of RLETs might have saved him $500 in repair costs to my car.
