Might have found a pair of well loved Shads ( one scrape ) for the right price.
any decent day at the Forks. I'll be working and enjoying the chit chatI am going to have to keep my eyes open......to see if I see you....
Good solo tourer for me - looking forward to it. Apparently Honda has really refined that motor for no buzz at touring speeds.very neat looking midsize ADV
I would have loved to inform you about my bike reaching 200.00km, but a cage driver decided otherwise. Fortunately only bruices and a ski-ing thumb.
After nearly 200.000km I am gonna say goodbye. I was not really active on this forum because the bike was so problem-free. In these 197.000km I had to replace the fork seals twice, head stock bearing, lower link bearing and the rear wheel bearings. For the rest it was maintenance according to the book
It is unpleasant..especially when you have wet feet/kickstand....Got 120 km on today - not sure of the weather tomorrow. Will finish off putting some farkles on.
Stock windscreen was pretty good but I think the Madstad rig will be still worth it.
Easy bike to ride as I recalled it ...just don't like the position of the kickstand .....I'll get used to it.
My kickstand foot from the CBF1000 fits perfectly so one good thing.
My USB charger tho does not as yet. Seat was stiff of course so can't tell much.
Smooth shifter but was spoiled by the torque of the CBF so have to keep revs up a bit.
This was reassuring about an earlier model CB500x
Top box is not necessary, but very convenient when you have to lock up your helmet. I am sure you know that already. Touring with side cases and putting bags on the seat will also be more than adequate.it is nice to have for spare layers ...but I agree bike handles in the wind better and easier to get a leg over.
Shad has a comfort seat/top case combo that brings the case over the pillion area so it's pure solo but worked well for my kid for 3 weeks.
He carried all his diabetes supplies in there ...which are light and the drying rack on top was invaluable. Worked out okay.
The poor old Vstrom took the load with just a few sparks hitting a bridge join ...
We both had decent size tank bags and the Jesse's were brilliant. Even room for the spare fuel.
