I finished my maiden voyage/ trip with the Honda Talon this week and I consider it a huge success.
I took it through sand dunes, the beach, hardpack, river bed and water, over rocks and trees, in the bushes and up challenging mountain trails.
I put over 470 miles on the Talon and hit a top speed of 75 mph. I know that top speed is limited and I’ll have to see about changing that.
I got some winch time and experience but didn’t get to do the Rubicon because of the Caldor fire. That’ll go on the bucket list.
Sea level to over 8,000 feet and the Talon always ran great. No hiccups, no issues, and not one broken belt. lol 😆 Had to get that one in there.
Very happy with the overall performance and handling. I really enjoyed being able to paddle shift when I wanted to or just cruise and let the Talon do it’s thing in Sport mode. Launch control is pretty cool and I’ll be playing more with that in the future.
My Talon is officially broke in. It’s now ready for a turbo and some paddles to start the Glamis season!
PS: It also needs a bath.
