    CB1000r newbie

    As title suggests this is my first post on this site. Just registered after making a right of my self and registering with CB1000R.com by mistake. How poor is that site ??? Anyway bit about myself ...

    Just taken delivery of my 2010 plate CB1000r in RED complete with Jesters carbon hugger, R&G tail tidy and Beowolf stainless steel rad guard. Moved up from a CB600F Hornet which served me very well. Test rode the 1000r and a FZ1 Faser before choosing - 1000r won hands down. May not quite have the power of the Fazer but lots more fun and more true to the Hornet riding style. Now I need to get out in the sun to clock up my first 600 miles running in done.

    Thanks to all the contributers on here who's knowlege and advice was a great help while I was choosing.

    Mel. Great decision and those pesky red ones will out number the rest at this rate Good start to the mods, loads more can be done, money permitting.
    Yes that other website is you will find this one so much more informative & you will soon learn who to listen to and who the nutters are (you know who you are).
    Whereabouts do you hail from? BTW are you THE mel b

    Thanks for the kind welcome guys.

    Yup I am the origional mel b - spice boy from Leeds - Yorkshire ( Gods own county ).

    Spotted two Dragon Green bikes at Squires last night - didn't like the colour very much it has to be said but it's got to be better than the new Beige I.M.H.O ( sorry if any members have chose it ).

    Mel,, bike sounds nice,, the red is very nice ,, agree about the matt beige,, but not a bad choice if you want to have one sprayed custom as the dealers are having trouble shifting them,, you should knock out the 600 miles this weekend while the weathers good. 600 mile service then give it full guns.

    Think you're safe there Mel, no beige owners yet, but don't upset the green owners, you won't like them when they're angry

    Re: CB1000r newbie

    Yup brand spanking new last week from Cas Honda £2400 less than the F1 Fazer would have been - how the hell can they justify that !!!!!

    Was fancying the HRC paint job at first myself but Carl @ Castles put me off - problems with Dream Machine and the Honda warranty

    Hope to be out with the lads early Sunday a.m. - best to avoid plod, rack up that first 600miles then BOOOOOOOOOOOST
