    Re: 1st 400 miles - 1st impressions

    I did 400miles on saturday on mine. I cant do any more until after the 1st service at the end of next week because its a 500mile round trip to the "local" dealer!!!!
    I have been DELIGHTED with the bike(last 6years on 2 R6's and a cbr600). I found the suspension a bit soft but havent adjusted it yet.Having said that I still like the handling. The comfort is excellent to me and i found cruising between 80-90mph good, but over 90 a bit of wind blast but thats one of the main reasons for buying a naked(to keep the speed down a bit!)

    Thanks Antnee, my throttle grip is 90 degrees further clockwise than yours so it has been fitted incorrectly. I'll get it changed at the service.

    cheers
    Paul

    WOW! Where do you live? That's a long way to be going for a service! I'd have had the bike delivered and set off for the dealers to have it serviced the next day!

    Glad to see you've finally seen the light though: Naked is more fun!

    Re: 1st 400 miles - 1st impressions

    I live 10 miles from John O Groats and my neartest Honda Dealer(where i bought the bike) is in Perth( central Scotland), so I have no real choice bar to travel. I want to pick the bike up rather than have it delivered as myself and a couple of mates wanted to go on a small tour.We will again next week to get it serviced! I couldnt get another day off work until then either(i work 6 days a week) So thats pretty much how it worked for me.
    In our area we have fairly empty roads so the sports bikes can be huge fun but a number of factors have made them lose their appeal. Mainly the local police(we have no crime) really have nothing better to do so i now have 11points, and on longer journeys my back was starting to feel it. 1 of my mates bought a Z1000 2 years ago and I did 120 miles on it last year, liked the riding position etc so I was wanting something on that lines(but not a Z) So when I seen the pictures of the CB during the winter I knew where the money was going....
