    1st and 2nd generation CBs share the garage now.

    Picked up my new beastie yesterday, I'm so impressed by the sheer overall quality of finish on the new CB, don't think I've ever seen better to be honest. Due to rubbish weather I've only done 25 miles so far so roll on some decent conditions.
    These pictures are before any mods at all but that will soon change. And the old girl in the photos will still be well looked after, although they both need their downpipes polishing, probably tomorrow.

    Congrats on the new bike Dave. I know what you mean about the quality of finish. First time I saw one at a dealer i was really impressed too. It certainly looked more striking than the pictures i’d Seen

    Very nice.


    I loved the old model. It was a great ride. The new one is more beautiful IMHO.

    I haven't owned an older CB however I can say that riding my 17' CBR back to back with the 18" NSC, I always come off the CB thoroughly enjoying the ride which is saying something. Two totally different bikes with two different purposes but both very enjoyable. Congrats on the new bike Dave

    Thanks everybody, did the first [and very expensive] mod today,skint now but happy. And as the weather here has been horrible all day I started polishing up the pipes,they'll end up better than this but it's a start. Just waiting on Evotech to have their tail tidy available again now.

    So you went with the Black then - who would have guessed

    Looking good Dave, enjoy


    (i'm surprised those annoying little yellow blobs of paint have evaded your cotton bud cleaning regime)

    Thanks Mel

    The black is a lovely deep gloss, it had to be that in the end. And all those little paint blobs will soon be gone, give me a chance !

    Got out today for a nice little ride [and with the current weather I'll be out again for the next 3 days with a bit of luck]
    Here's a couple of pictures, got a Yoshi tail tidy now as well as black V Trec levers and a silver Pro bolt oil filler cap -it's the little details that matter.

    Nice!
    I don't think you (or me) will ever get tired of looking at that bike 🙂
