    10 years old.

    Well my bike is now 10 years old with just over 19 thousand miles on it , in the 10 years I have had it I have not had one issue, a few tyres and chain and sprockets changed last year, plus a few services, it has never let me down. A month or so ago it has started to weep fork oil from right fork. Think the CB1000r will be the last bike I ever own here is to the next 10 years.Long live the ultra reliable CB1000r.

    Very similar for me too. Bike registered 09/09/09. ( Great number to remember. ) 24 thousand miles and all original parts, no problems either apart from BOTH front forks leaking. Ditto for the last bike too as there's no reason to even consider changing it.

    Might have to have a Viking type funeral and have it buried with me.------

    I have to confess, i have considered changing my 2014 bike. Can’t seem to go through with it though. Went out a few days ago, a crisp autumnal feel to the morning, very little traffic, and wondered does it get any better than this? Bike was excellent

    I get the shopping bug.
    I go look at bikes and test ride a few.
    Then I ride mine.
    Shopping bug gone.
    LOVE my CB.


    Grab seal cleaner and go at the fork seals. They might not need replaced if it's just dirty under the seal.

    I’ve had them changed last April for better ones than stock.
