1, Scott oilers, hate them hate the mess  :004:
2, Heated grips, I've got good gloves  :039:
3, Huggers, bad experience with an exploding one on my first Blade  :720:
4, Panniers and boxes, add weight where you really don't want it and if I need that much stuff I'll use the car  :181:
5, Bridgestone touring tyres or "nippon slipoffs" as I call them  :151:

Have you thought of doing something else other than biking Badger?

Maybe you would be more happier with a trike  :008:

Quite happy biking thanks, have been for over 30 years just without the above.

Not knocking those who go that route shows how adaptable the CBF is and good luck to you.

Just a bit of fun and my take on it.  :028:

1. Givi touring screen. Well made, easy to fit, nice price and it works. 5/5

2. Fender extender skidmarx. Must have piece of kit. 5/5

3. R & G crash bungs, rad protector and bar ends. HAVE U SEEN THE PRICE OF A RAD!! Just hope the bungs dont get tested. 5/5

4. Rear Hugger skid marx. Hmmm not brillant. 3/5

5. Honda rear rack and topbox. Brill quality does the job, but the price :005: 4/5

6. Honda heated grips, expensive :005: but would'nt be without them, they work v well.  5/5

7. Almost forgot scottoiler, bit messy, but would'nt be without one, its nice to know that the poor old chain [oft forgotten about] is getting a little bit of tlc.

Hope the above is of use. :028:

OK, it's a little while since Mike did a summary, but it seems for huggers and fenda extendas, Skidmarx are the ones to go for, and for radiator covers it's Beowulf.

If anyone can name a good brand of HID I'd appreciate it.

I've got few more than 10 and they are all good, some are even essential. In order of front to rear:

1. HID headlights
2. LED marker lights
3. LED 20Watt auxiliary lamps (fitted under nose of fairing)
4. Pyramid Fender extender
5. 12v aux socket in dash, for sat nav, phone etc.
6. Voltage monitoring LED in dash (pre warns of alternator failure)
7. Oxford Heated grips. essential.
8. Baglux tank cover and tank bags (15 ltr and 45 Ltr)
9. Honda carbon look fuel filler protection kit.
10.RG engine protection mushrooms
11.Ermax colour coded lower fairing
12.Ermax colour coded hugger
13. Scorpion flamed cans
14. Givi wing rack and side rack
15. Givi business case, 47 ltr topbox, 2 x Givi 36 ltr panniers.
16. Optimate charger.
17. Bridgestone BT023 tyres, great in all weathers.
18. Colour coded rim tape and CBF1000 logos for wheels.
19. Tracker. So when some as~ho*e steals it I can go 'round his house with some mates and point out the errors of his theiving ways!

phew!

Christ, that lot must have cost me as much as the bike!
Death is just natures little way of telling us to slow down and take it easy.

2008 Honda CBF 1000 Silver ABS
Honda Knuckle Deflectors installed by dealership can't rate them but they look nice
Honda heated grips 4/5 grips are big and hard
12v aux socket in dash 5/5
Honda full luggage colour coded 4/5 would be 5/5 if the ignition key would open it
Engine protection mushrooms 5/5 looks good hope they work if i ever need them bought these on ebay too
Givi windscreen 3/5 I bought the bike with it but over 100kmh I get head buffeting
Mirror extenders on ebay 5/5 these are cheap and great
Honda Valve caps cheap and I actually get compliments on them $4 on ebay 5/5 for the price


I just ordered a hugger, lower fairing colour coded, Madstad Honda CBF1000 6-9 2006-2009 Adjustable Screen Mount Bracket, MRA Honda CBF1000 & CBF1000GT 6-9 2006-2009 Vario Touring Motorcycle Screen, front and rear steel braided brake lines, SHORAI LITHIUM ION BATTERY and front and rear Michelin Pilot Road 3

I would like a automatic chain oiler, radiator guard, led lighting, fender extender colour coded if possible, new shock, new fork springs as the stock are way to soft and some seat modification or a new seat.
