New member saying hello
« on: 28 August, 2019, 03:41:43 PM »
Hello all - very pleased to be entering the fold having recently purchased a pristine 2010 CBF 1000 AT-9 in black, which is how it is described in the V5C. I believe that because of the twin exhausts this is known as a Mk1. 

Mind you the V5C also says its a bicycle and I've never ridden a peddle bike this fast! The bike came to me through a low-volume dealer at 8k miles, full service history etc.  Had it about 2 weeks and haven't stopped ginning yet.

I'm a 54 year old first time motorcyclist - inspired to do my CBT when my 19 year old son did his and went off to ride a Chinese Honda copy around Thailand with a buddy. Decided he shouldn't have more qualifications or fun than me so did CBT in May and DAS in August.  Besides the CBF125 I was riding for experience after the CBT, the CBF1000 is my first 'real' bike.  I'd been considering 500's, the NC750 and even a Pen European when I cam across the CBF1000 and fell for her.

So - good to know you.

VW.

Welcome.

The twin exhausts does make it what is colloquially referred to here as the MKI. Honda refer to it as a type SC58 and if you look closely at the engine, just to confuse matters, Honda refer to that as a type SC57 engine.

Not sure what your 'T' stands for mine is shown on the V5 and Certificate of Conformity as a CBF 1000 A-6 type 58 with a 57E engine. Also shown as a bicycle as all motorcycles are classified as (motorised) bicycles in the UK.

Congrats on your CBT and DAS, I got my Category A licence the easy way 12 weeks after my 16th birthday back in the day.

Happy Days

Ah yes - she is indeed a Grand Tourer - in black with Honda colour-coded luggage.  Thanks for that.

Aha - so my V5C says CBF 1000 AT-9, which the linked post says is 2008+ with 'A' = ABS ('Gold' colour Calipers)' and 'T' = 'Touring' version (from AT8* onwards):  + Centre Stand AND + colour coded Panniers.' All correctly matching mine.  I previously thought it was a GT from the factory but the link suggests the 'G' covers fairing lower mods by dealers made on the touring factory model, which is entirely possible but I can't verify as I don't know what I'm looking for.

Also on that linked thread, @Bifferman attached some Honda specs docs and reading the 2008 doc I reckon my bike is not plain shiny black but 'Pearl Nightstar Black'. Thats marketing for you - sigh!

I thought all CBF 1000's came with a centre stand not just the 'T' variants, at least mine did and its a plain old CBF 1000 A6
