Hello everyone,

Been a member on here for a while, but not visited for ages as couldn't wait until launch date, so I sold my Tiger 1050 and bought a GSXR1000.

That was a mistake as the Gixxer is so bloody uncomfortable, but I missed the punch that sports bikes deliver.

Anyway, you are probably way ahead of me by now - yes I test rode the new CB1000R yesterday - WOW!

Sports bike handling and power in a comfortable package at last!

Dealer offered me a straight swap for my 4 month old Gixxer - severely tempted. Going for another test ride at the weekend first though.

Torn between a Black or White one, and not sure about ABS.

This is a good forum - very similar to the Tiger1050.com site - still visit old friends there - take a look!

I will keep you posted of developments after the test ride!
Cheers

Hi.
Where about are you? (Im 15miles from John O Groats). I changed to the Cb after 6 years of sports bikes. Delighted is an understatement. I sold my R6 about 6 weeks ago, so i had a month with no bike. If my CB never turned up in time i was going to see about a fireblade. After 200miles on my mates ninja the day before i got my CB im glad i never changed my order!Back and arse were killing me!
And to think i laughed at my other mate for selling his blade for a Z1000 2 years ago........

Well I'm back on board guys - didn't buy one last time around, but just put a deposit down on an HRC replica CB1000R painted by Dream Machine, looks fantastic! Pick it up next Friday, any recommendations on essential mods?
