    CB1000R durability.

    For those of you that ride all year in all weathers, does the CB show much wear and tear? I get a bit frustrated with the lack of riding this time of year but i’ve found road salt a bit of an issue back in the day. The cold i can cope with but i’m concerned about the winter weather and it’s affect on the bike. Be interested to know how others view the situation?

    ACF50 will sort it.

    I've used plenty of different sprays over the years and with regular application they all work well. ACF50 and the Muc Off bike protector spray are my favourites.

    ^^^ what he said! no rusty fasteners; no deteriorating finishes. the chain needs more attention than I typically give it, of course, but that's it...
    makes wonderful winter 'hack'!

    Been riding mine all winter for a couple of years and no issues with rust at all. Not given it any special attention either. Top quality from Honda, as usual.

    Thanks for the replies. Sounds like my concerns regarding the affects of all weather riding on the bike may be unwarranted. If I got on and used it rather than pampering it, i wouldn’t have to worry about whether i should be starting it regularly or not in the winter either.

    ...and you'd appreciate the good weather even more when it finally arrives, Tucksie, after all the miserable riding!

    You’re probably right. You just don’t get out on the bike enough this time of year with my current policy.

    However a trickle charger for those winter months is still a great idea.
