Me too !!Just toook an 80 mile ride and had a couple of tight turn a rounds, wow was that a breeze...never looked down loved it.
On the gear shift knob...Holy s..t I thought I was pulling the sword from the stone getting that dang thing off. I started to think I have got old and weak. Then I started rocking it a litttle. I'll be honest I worked up a sweat and had to rest a couple of times. It was like passing a bowling ball???
I would also add on a fender extender/mud flap kit. Might save some cleaning time and keep rocks from blasting you through the nettingHere are few items that are must have items for any Talon Owner and they are all under $100.00
1. Shift plate from catechusa.com Honda Talon Gear Selector Shift Gate (Shiftgate)
View attachment 360
The shift plate is truly a marvelous upgrade. You no longer have to look down at the shiftier to move from forward to reverse or low to high range. You do have to bring car to stop and idle to change but that is same with stock. Makes moving in tight spaces a snap.
2. Hillbilly Brake

The Hillbilly Brake or something like it should have been installed on every Talon. There is even an attachment point for it on both the R and X. Helps keep the car in place, helps when using a winch, has a place to secure brake with a lock. All a plus.
3. A service manual (Dealer or on line)
View attachment 362
I recommend the book -- handy reference in the garage.
4. Push Pin removal tool (any tool store)
View attachment 361
Pick up a couple of spare push pins at the same time form any parts store. Just bring one along to compare.
I do not work for any of the companies nor am I compensated in any shape, form or fashion.
