    Put 130 miles on it after I picked it up today. Very happy with it. The power is controlled and easy to use. Very tame (if wanted) in traffic.
    Setting suspension now. So far, very happy.

    Congrats and welcome!!
    CBR600RR is a great bike, do you feel the CB1000R being a lot less nimble and slow to react?
    The 1000R is "easier" to use than the 600RR was. I found the 1000 nimble and easier to set in corners. Very stable. Also it's easier to use the power it has. I enjoyed the RR, but this 1000R seems pretty sweet to me.

    And it gets BETTER.

    I thought the CB would have a heavier feel after my Hornet 600 but it actually feels lighter.

    Like a 600 on steroids.-------

    When I picked it up my friend rode it around the block. He was shocked how light it felt and how easy it was to turn in a parking lot. He rides a upright 600 Yamaha. He was impressed with the CB's low speed characteristics.

    Tell me about the insurance. I just went from a Ducati 848 Superbike with 134 HP to the CB1000R. Full year max insurance for the Ducati was $630. When they told me my 123 HP CB1000R was $1,300 for the same coverage I was pissed. Should have checked before I bought which I usually do but never figured this would be the case. I am 62 with a perfect driving record, MSF certificates and a 40 plus year history of very fast bikes. My 2008 Audi S4 with a V8 and full coverage is only $800. WTF.

    That insurance quote seems outrageous. I live in LA and the insurance goes about $700/year. WAY less than my turbo Carrera, but a little more than my R1200RT.

I'm 39. I'm a drafter by profession. Looking forward to putting some miles on the new bike. I currently own a 2016 Honda Metropolitan. I only work a few miles from home so the scooter makes for a fun ride to work. A few of my previous bikes include;

    2013 Honda CB1100
    2013 Honda CBR600RR
    2010 Honda GL1800 Goldmine
    2008 Honda XR650L
    2007 Honda Metropolitan

    And many others outside the Honda brand, but I am a Honda lover. I'll report back once I get some miles on the new one. Excited about the bike, but extremely disappointed with the cost of insurance. Oh well, I guess that's what happens when they are considered "sport".
    Congratulations!!! Have fun and ride safe.
