New CBF Owner!!
« on: 11 June, 2019, 02:23:46 PM »
Hi, I collect my 2010 CBF1000 on the 14th June. Previous bikes have been Triumph Sprint RS 955i, CBR600F2, Kawasaki ZX7r and various imported 400cc crotch rockets.....

Looking forward to some comfort and fun!!!!

Congratulations! I think you'll find it a dependable machine with enough power to do whatever you wish.

It looks as if you've got modified handlebars, complete with wind deflectors, am I right?

Oh and enjoy!

Looks in good nick. Enjoy. I have a 3 year old CBF, I have just paid the balance off today, so it's all mine now. That is how much I enjoy it. I looked at trade in options, and couldn't find anything suitable to replace it with. Don't go much on adventure bikes, Honda have no alternative that I liked the look of, or with ridiculously small passenger seats (Neo Sports CB1000R), alternatives makes either too expensive, or no improvement over the CBF1000.

I do like the black! Is it original? I see, apart from the tank logos there's no badges except on the fairing. I also like the wheels in black. Much easier to hide the road crud, brake powder and chain oil between washes. Which of course I do after every ride.

But it does look very nice.

So, I have ridden it quite a bit now and I bloody love it!! Quick in the mid range, predictable handling and no pressure on my wrists (has got some very pretty bar risers). Going to stick a pair of Black Widow cans on it and it will be a perfect steed for a good few years!!

Thanks for all the welcome comments, great to feel a part of a "Squad"

I fitted 400mm Black Widow ovals with the carbon tip a couple of weeks ago. Really pleased with them. Excellent quality, everything lined up to fit. A lovely deep burble, so pleased with them.
