It is the lightening of the wallet that makes it go faster.
Adding the spoiler only advances the pace of monetary drainage.
At one point the Hondaline box is so expensive one becomes apprehensive about it casting a shadow simply because the shadow means it has been taken out of it cozy confines of the climate controlled house and now faces the elements where devaluation is just one scratch away.

Paul, that description was so eloquent that now I want one. I might buy two of them just because.

I got a sweet deal on my spoiler. Second-hand yes, but never been out of the box and for only $50.

It was the newer silver metallic color and now the 2003 Silver but, who cares. Hardly notice it and, if you do, you'd think I did it on purpose to get some custom look to it. ;-)

Those puppies usually go for around $300, don't they?

Never would have considered it if I had to pay retail.

If you look hard and be patient, you'd be surprised the deals that come along.

My wife doesn't take kindly to being called a spoiler.

I paid full price (ouch) but one day you will not be able to buy them in any color.

Since I have the faster blue model and the blue Honda trunk and spoiler as well I have been moving around at supersonic speeds.

The spoiler helps the handling
As the Blue crew says, Have you been passed lately ?

Doppler says if the bike in front of you looks blue you're gaining on it. If it looks red, it's leaving you. My bike is red.

Beautiful givi maxia E55 $330 another $65 for gloss black top to make it matchy. Can't see why the hondaline is twice as good, and I prefer the rounder givi, the hondaline looks to wing-like. BUT that is just me. I know most prefer the hondaline

I don't know that Doppler guy. I just know that blue is fastest.
