    Things Have Moved On

    Hello all, hope you're having fun.

    I've loved owning and riding my CB1Kr but recently I test rode an Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory and I couldn't believe how much things have moved on. The motor on that thing is amazing, add to that the electronic Ohlins and full electronics suite and things become hard to ignore. That hard to ignore I ended up buying one.

    I still have the CB and find I'm finding it really hard to put it up for sale, that bike is awesome. But I think after 5 years it's going to be up pretty soon. Unless I keep it

    Pictures from today, at the Owls Nest in Llandovery. First time that my wife has riden the CB and she might decide to keep it

    Defo get the wife to keep the CB. The Aprillia is about the only bike I would get over my CB if I had the money

    Thanks guys

    Well the CB is still here, It is the bike of choice at the moment when we go out so it might be curtains for her GSXR.

    It does run a little hot but only when stationary for a while.

    I'm still running it in, the weather has been biblical, only 280 miles to go and then I can unleah it, weather depending
