Managed to convince the girlfriend to take a small detour on saturday when i went to visit some family near chester. Rang up the honda dealer in Shrewsbury and they had a white demo CB1000r with CBS, as white was the colour i wanted to see you can imagine i was grining from ear to ear after putting the phone down :)

First impressions on seeing it were that its a very solid looking bike and small just like most people seem to be saying. Also the white is very striking and i must admit i really liked it. Would have been nice to see afew more bikes there in the different colour options so i could have a clearer idea on which i definately want, black is the only other colour im seriously considering right now.

Anyway saw it, loved it, and now i WANT IT !! hehe

Silver is the better colour.....

But any CB1000R is good.

I have put some photos of mine in the multimedia section.

know that black is the best. It's timeless

So's syphilis, but you wouldn't want to be riding anything that was covered in that :p

Anyway, I thought you'd been tango'd? :rollin

Re the above, White is def the best colour, it's the 'new' black ya know !

Wouldn't describe it as 'pretty' tho, and not sure about the 'women are always right' bit either !

I suppose it's true that the white is 'pretty' but it's been proven already that this is a girls bike !! :)

Then again it would be ok for the inexperienced riders to ride for a year then graduate to the full power black beast !! :devil :lol :lol

ahh i see you two are believers in the theory that having a black car/bike adds 20 Bhp to the engine and another 0.5sec off the 0-60 time :taunt2

Of course this is untrue; black absorbs all the incoming light slowing the bike down! Silver, on the other hand, being highly reflective allows the light to slide around the bike minimizing resistence.

In fairness that definitely applies to me. I wonder if the black -> smaller thing explains why everyone thinks my bike is a 250? Ha ha
