I'm going to spain in november to visit my old college roommate. guy lives in morocco, so I figured I'd take the cheap (relatively) flight to madrid and ride a rental bike south to gibraltar to take the ferry to morocco. there are two standards that caught my eye, honda CB 750 and the CB 500 twins.

the 750 has 20 hp and 10 ft-lbs on the 500 but weighs 100 lbs more. 5 speed instead of 6 speed (500 has 6 speed). the 500 weighs in at a nice 380 lbs dry. looks like the 750 loses pretty badly overall. any notable advantage to going with the heavier bike for sport touring? anyone ride newer versions of any of these bikes?
