    Guess I'll have to see if Honda sells them.

    You can always stop off at a Honda dealer, I'm sure they'll have them.

    Fobo works, at least for me. Is reliable and quite accurate, again - at least for me. Doesn't have to take the place of proper tire checks, although it does tell you pressure AND temperature when you're within range of your bike. What it does do that plain caps cannot do, is alert you during the ride of a slow or fast leak. You run over something on your ride that causes either of these conditions and getting an alert can be a life saver, or at least a problem minimizer. Also, because it monitors temperature, it can alert you to potential problems before they become real problems. I use them on my camper because a tire that is running too hot can soon be a tire that's shredding and taking part of your RV with it, and causing who knows what other damage and dangerous circumstances. On a bike, your tires suddenly running hot or low on air is an opportunity to pull over and check it out before you have a real problem on your hands. There's a reason they're required on all new cars.

    Perfect solution? There's no such thing. But for me, my money and my comfort they work. YMMV and you're entitled to your opinion though.
