    Just bought a 12 plate (MK1 tho).

    Rode it home from Bristol to Solihull.

    I feel the love affair beginning already!

    Nice to meet you all.

    What do you love about your Biffers????

    I love the low seat. I'm 5ft 8 and can get both feet flat on the ground.  I love the torque  and the 59 mpg  I get from it and I love the fact that my wife says it's
     the  most comfortable bike I've owned.

    What you have there is a SC58 probably a late registered CBF1000 A-9 an excellent choice for a Sports Tourer that ticks many boxes in its class.

    Low seat height, engine output and fuel economy were major purchase considerations for me, but the biggest plus is the ease in which the CBF1000 can be serviced and maintained at home by the home mechanic without the need for any special tools or diagnostic equipment. If youíre allowed spanners and you haven't already, you may want to download the Honda Workshop and Owners Manuals here.

    I rode for 68 years including a Vincent, many Velocettes, and several Hondas; I kept my Mk 1 CBF 1000 for 7 years and it was the best bike I ever owned. It did everything I wanted, including touring and 'having fun' :164:
    I only gave it up when it became too heavy for me and migrated to my first BMW - an F800GT that had the Rotax engine. Sadly it was my last bike due to my wife's Looooooong Covid Anxiety, just as I was getting the hang of how to ride a motorcycle :008:

    Thank you, I appreciate that. I will be attempting do do most things myself, so good to hear the bike mechanics are accessible.

    The best bike you ever owned? That's high praise indeed considering your bike resume!

    Thanks for sharing

    Welcome Biffer999, glad that you are enjoying it already. The bike seems quite easy to ride even when Iím feeling a bit lazy.
    Enjoy.
