Demon Tweeks sell one that looks pretty strong:

Having two and walking the bike up sounds better than what a friend of mine used to do - he had three ramps, one in the middle for the bike and one either side for his feet, he'd then ride his Pan European onto a conventional (not bike) trailer. Damn scary to watch!

Just pulled the trigger and bought a cheap CBF1000 for commuting.

Sorry to worry you yozzer- im sure its fine all ive read about them indicates a fine bike - mine had super soft suspension when i got it and the lack of oil and the missing parts seem to indicate that could be a major factor in the handling issues. Thought i would start with the forks as i didnt want to ´fork’ out for tyres and find its the fork oil. But if its still a bit wobbly then i will go down that route. Parts arriving tomorrow so will tackle at the weekend and let you know. Its a honda theyve sold loads so im not concerned long term, and the shop said the frame etc is all ok.

Whaaaaa   shopping trolley?    supposed to be very good handling. Not picking mine up until Sat and youve got me worried now.
Maybe your tyres have decent tread but are old or squared off as in previous owner never leaning it over far.( I had that exact problem with a Versys 650 ,really good tread but old and square. I fitted new tyres and it was like a different bike- excellent
Please let me know if you get to the bottom of your handling issue and if so how it handles now

Hi to all,
Have been riding 44 yrs and have got a street triple at the moment but as I have a big Scottish tour coming up soonish I have bought a CBF1000 ABS 2006 12,500mls
Despite my mates telling me not buy one as I will be bored to death I've decided to give it a try as the MCN and actual owners reviews are very good. The street triple would easily do the trip but You cant get any decent touring screen for the early model and its a tad cramped .So i am hopefully going down the comfort and plenty of grunt route .
One thing I would like to do is get some aftermarket silencers on as the originals seem to stifle about 98% of that lovely  engines sound !
Will let you know what I think of  the of the CBF when ive got a few miles on it.
cheers Yozzer,York.

I’d second what Art suggests. I have had a similar noise on a previous bike and one of the chain pins was very stiff. Couldn’t free it so fitted new chain and sprockets.
On Two Wheels / Motorcycle Loading Ramp

I'm always on the look out for a project bike or an old classic, but for items further afield I'd rather collect using my twin axle trailer.
Rather than using planks, has anyone purchased or can recommend a good quality motorcycle loading ramp, please?
Most of the ones advertised appear to be quite flimsy.
Ideally I'd want a pair so I can walk up one with a bike on the other.
