Can I ride the paso on daily basis, like 25Km each direction?
What should be done or expected due to that?
I now have 86' Honda Goldwing and it work flawless, fuel and go.

If it is regularly maintained I don't see why not.

I used to do over 150km a day on mine without trouble. The only downside is squaring off the rear tire, with all that time on the superslab

Hi Pastr,
The Paso will love it. It thrives on regular use with regular maintenance. That was my standard commute some years ago, 25Km each way, no troubles.
Cheers,
Fraser.

The important thing is that the engine gets to operating temperature. If you'd commute very short distances sooner or later you may have problems due to oil emulsion and black spark plugs. 25km will be fine if it's not mainly city traffic. Have a look at the downoads thread and check the wiring modification file. The better the spark (or overall condition of the electrics) the less problems you will have in every day use.

Thanks
I'll check the wiring to see if changes were made.
There is no city ride, just 25 Km of open roads, fields and mountains, just fun ride and beautiful views on the way to work and back.
the way back it's down hill all the way, need to think how keep it at working temp!!!

Ride faster for better air flow? :lol:

No better way to start the day though!

Cheers.
