    Alright People !
    Not too technically minded with computers so Iíll keep it brief.
    Got my 2015 Cb1000r 2 weeks ago - love it - did a couple of local rides then went on favourite roads out to Bala , N.Wales last week.
    Previously had zx6r , 954 blade , GSXR 750 L5 - thought I might find the cb too heavy but itís superb , flickable & comfy .
    Had it dynoíd , PC & Yoshi r77 put on it ........think Iím going to put baffle in though as itís too loud for my paranoia !
    Hopefully Iíll post some more when I get my head around message board .

    welcome. yup, the CB is not the lightest ride around - on the scales - but there's not much 'lighter on its feet' when underway, is there? enjoy...
    piling the mileage on...

    Welcome aboard and congratulations on a great bike. Yes the CB feels light as a feather anywhere past 2 miles an hour! Whatís a baffle?

    A BAFFLE--------A restriction in the exhaust system.

    Nice roads to have on your doorstep

    Don't worry about the mpg mate - I used to get a flashing fuel light at less than 100 miles when I was "on it."

    Hopefully meet up at the Ponderosa Cafe at the top of the Horseshoe Pass some time.

    I ride mid and north Wales regularly in the summer. Great scenery, great roads
