Mumbai and Pune, India here.

Just bought my first bike and it just happened to be a 2013 CB1000R with 8k kms on the clock.
I've ridden a lot of bikes but I've only owned a Honda Activa moped and now this. So the only thing consistent is the fact that I stuck to a Honda.
I'm in love with this machine and I'm just been practicing and practicing.
It's the perfect bike for the city and I intend to use it daily. Have a bit of a highway run and that's why I needed a bike for its road presence.

Any tips for a newbie like me and please don't say I made a mistake in buying such a big bike. I definitely don't think it too big for my 96kg/5'11'' frame.
Are you still with us Otto ???

Yes it is a big bike for a first bike, but that doesn't mean you are going to crash burn and die. Just keep practicing and big empty parking lots or a great place to do it. Respect the power of the bike and you will be fine. Welcome aboard I'm fairly new out here myself lots of good information and nice folks here.

Somewhat new to the forum. I have very limited posts. Anyhow, I'm in St. Augustine, Fl. If anyone is in the area, and wants to meet up for a ride, be sure to get in touch with me.

Hi..I'm from Malaysia. Currently owning a 2011 CB1000R. Just bought a used one and found out all related problems are mostly solved here..
In Malaysia, this bike is quite rare, which is to my liking. Upgraded from a 650cc twin, it's my first 1k cc inline 4
