You can post the pictures in the galler on the site and link to them from there.

I did my motorcycle saftey course on a Nighthawk, very easy bike to control.

Nice little bike. My dad had one before he got his Honda Magna, and i rode it a couple times when i first got my permit, before i decided that i liked cars better. :p

AKA the Honda CB700SC

The Nighthawk S made its debut in 1984. The Nighthawk S was produced until 1986 when Honda terminated the production of the whole Nighthawk line. This was and still is a very popular bike as far as I am concerned. It offers something that a lot of today's riders are looking for, "versatility." The Nighthawk S can run with most of today's sportbikes without sacrificing much needed comfort. It can be a great bike to tour on, or just use for those short trips into the country.

Standing start 1/4 mile 12.35 sec. @ 107.46 mph
Acceleration, 0-60 mph 3.60 seconds

Wrong Nighthawk. The S was a sport touring bike, like the SV650 is now.

I wanted one of these when I was looking for a bike, but they've been holding their value quite well.
