PROUD OWNER OF A CBF1000ST 2009 !!!
on: 24 January, 2021, 09:51:33 AM
Ciao to all CBF1000 forum members!!

I bought a beautiful used CBF 1000 ST Y09 last year in May, just comin' out from the 1st COVID-19 wave in Italy.
It was over 10 years I was dreaming about it and I thought 'well, we only live once, it's time!'  :031: :031:

I choose such model as the best HONDA option in my opinion for touring with my girlfriend (I fitted a SHAD SH58X along with HONDA ST original side bags and just bought an additional windshield to run smoother over 110 kmh).

Beside that, I also own a Lambretta SX 200, which was bought by my grandfather in 1967 and I carefully restored in the past few years (also upgrading it a little bit to compete with Vespas 200cc ..... ;)  :) ).

I have always been a HONDA fan, I alm also the proud owner of a HONDA ACCORD TOURER 09 i-VTEC 2.0 close to 300k kms and planning to buy exactly the same model with 2.4 engine, after another 100k kms ....).

I came to CBF1000 forum while investigating into the well-known rectifier (/stator) issue on CBFs, being close to 34k kms, I am still in doubt, wheter to buy/replace the rectifier (would not change the stator) or install a voltage meter to monitor the situation before buying it ... but I do not want to go off-topic, this message was intended to introduce myseld to the forum: my congratulations to the staff behind the forum, very well conceived, and thanks to all the members sharing their experiences and know-how about HONDAs CBF 1000 !

Keep all healthy and never give up !!

Ciao from Italy,
Luciano

Welcome Luciano.I have an identical '09 but without those cracking looking panniers! Pretty sure the Biffer will delight you in all departments. Massively underrated ,very capable machine. After some 35 bikes spanning 57 years of biking I feel she is clearly the best I have ever ridden.Ed.Maldon, Essex,UK.

After 66 years riding I agree! :028: (7 years ownership before it got too heavy.) :012:
