Hi from Victoria, British Columbia (Canada)
on: 24 November, 2021, 06:23:29 AM
Hello all. This is my second 1000cc Honda, the first having been a 1987 Hurricane. My first Honda ever was a 1976 CB360T, bought used from my local Honda dealer on Bank St. in Ottawa in 1980.

My 2008 CBF has almost 90K km and is in quite good condition. Registered and insured today. I have just ridden my first 30 km and am very impressed ó itís not as fast as my old Tuono, nor as comfortable as my old ST1300, but it is a fabulous mix of solid and compact, fast and flickable, torquey and revvy. Since our local speed limits are 80 or 90 km/h (nothing higher within 2 hoursí ride), a truly fast bike is wasted on us here. I am looking forward to enjoying the specific set of virtues the CBF has to offer, and hope to be able to tap the collective brain trust here if necessary!
