    That Day Has Arrived

    Well nearly, on Monday I will be saying farewell to the CB1000r and collecting my MT10. I am very excited to be getting a new bike but will still be a little sad to see the Honda go. It has been a fantastic four year relationship and the Honda did nothing wrong, in fact it did most things very well, but all good things come to an end. I just hope it finds a good home.

    Took a picture of the CB this afternoon, a sort of keepsake....lol



    And here is the replacement being prepped today ready for collection.

    hey Geordie
    There are quite a few of us ex CB owners now with MT10s , I see you are on the MT10 forum already, may recognise Ghostrider & Clem , I am Elkster over there :-)
    You will enjoy, as you say the CB was and still is a great bike but the MT10 is something special as well.

    Enjoy Geordie - I know exactly what you're going through !!! You feel like you're jilting, abandoning a true riding companion ! But the big smiles on your face on your new bike will soon wipe away any guilt and I'll guarantee you'll be looking forward even more to your next ride ! I went down the BM route but the MT is a big contender - enjoy !!- stick on the forum as we can all offer views and advice for new CB owners ! (...hopefully!)

    I want to see some track day reviews of the FZ10. Then I need to get over how ugly it is

    Well it arrived today, I have to admit I bottled it and didn't go to collect it. I opted for the offer of free delivery, well it was minus two today and there is LOADS of salt on the roads

    I did wonder if I was doing the right thing as I watched the Honda being loaded into the back of a van, but as you say, once I get out on the new bike I'm sure I will be grinning again.

    The two friends who have the MT10 absolutely love it, and say it's a grinning good time (apart from drinking like a fish). I still have issues with the fact that, as someone said, it looks like they magnetized the frame and then dragged it through a junkyard backwards to see which bits stuck.

    I'm sure it's an amazing ride though. Enjoy!
