Hi
At last a chance to sit down and join the band of brothers who ride CBRs.
After having my first F Sport for 8 years she was stolen by some low life in Kingston and after going to my local Honda dealer (Tippets) and trying the new CB 650F (gutless and no soul) I found another one at a small dealer in Suffolk.
Riding it home gave me a chance to really note any issues; when I arrived home I spent a week working through the bike to see what needed changing, mainly chain and sprockets.
After more hours fettling I obtained a Power Commander and left it with Steve Jordan M/cs to work their Dyno magic. Brill job they did too.
Since then trips to Barcelona via ferry at Bilbao and last year a visit to the First World War battlefields and immaculate but tragic cemetries at Arras, Mons, Verdun and then Passchendaele and Ypres. Also a few days riding in the Black Forest though somewhat disappointing due to 80 kph speed limits !
Just back from attending the BMAD Festival in a sunny Paignton.
Cheers and best wishes.
C

welcome. I like the sound of those trips you described.

Also know the feeling of having a bike stolen by a lowlife. I guess after 35 years, Im beginning to think it will never be found...lol.
