New member form The Netherland

Hi all,

Thank you for allowing me to join.
I'm gerard from Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Last Saturday I picked up my first CBF1000F.

After driving a ST1100 for 6 years it was time for a change.
First I was thinking about a VFR800, but after a test drive my back didn't agree with that decision.
So I went for a CBF1000F (2010), my back agreed immediately.

The bike is white, bagster seat en two paniers. (the suitcases on both sides, do not know if this is the correct term)
It has done +/-75.000 KM, so it is practically new.

I'm not really technical so probably I will ask a question or two :)

Houdoe,

Gerard

75,000 of your kilowotnots is about 45,000 miles in real money and just about run in, enjoy!

Any service history with it?

Happy Days

guy I know checked it and agreed on it. Except for the color.
So it should be good.

Any advice on the tires? They are ok but not excellent and winter is coming,

Regarding tyres, currently on Avon Storm 3D X-M myself, no complaints.  :028:

Tyres choice is a hot topic much like engine oil. Bridgestone BT-023's work for me, good for 10,000 miles (16,000 Km) all year riding.
