Hello, Mikael from Sweden checking in
So the 50 year crisis hit and I found myself buying a bike again.
Looked around for some cheap used one but all was "well used" or to expensive, found this little green thing and got a resonable price. Less money than a good used one.
But suddenly the devil hit me and I just had to buy accessories, bling and some hopefully good things
Maybe this forum is partly to blame?
Ah well if there is moneys left when you die its a failure
R&G tail tidy and crash protectors
Pillion, tank pads and saddle from Kawasaki
Some random rim stripes
Ordered: (arriving this week?)
Shorter adjustable levers
Ermax belly pan
Its a small bike or even very small, but so nimble and so fun to drive.
The on/off throttle response is to hate though, seems most Euro4 bikes is that way.
Spoke to a guy with good experience from a Boosterplug on this bike so Ill try.
The higher saddle made a huge difference, I even got some cramps before (maybe it was just me beeing older and unused?)
I owned the bike for 2,5 weeks now and made 2200km, first service done.
Seems its the best thing that happened to me since she threw me out
Got me some new gear also, since there was som fluffy things growing on my leather gear, sadly i went cheepo there so I need to buy better next year.
Got my MC license at 16yo and had bikes for like 15 years.
First was a Honda CB125, my moped was faster than that. Got me a Yamaha RD125 (2 cyl 2 stroke), tuned it and yeah that was a funny thing.
Had my brothers Honda CB750 for a while and moved up to a Honda CB900 BolDor, that bike was horrible. Well used and some extremly noicy 4-1 that made it run like ****.
Got me a Honda CB1100F wich I had for 10 years, I loved it even if it was like a bus.
Forgot that I made a holder for a TopBox.
Bought the stuff that hold the pillion, like 50euros
And bolted this to the TopBox mounting.
Now I can alter between Pillion or TopBox with my key and there is no "ugly" holder visible.
