So, I just dropped off my beloved CB1 "Black" i just finished fully updating to my brothers.
It's his 50th birthday next month and he's such a good guy that he deserves some distraction in his tomatal chaos life.
So...depending on how I can move funds around, I may be eyeing for another CB1.

Time to get a different bike.  If you get another CB-1, you might have 2 when it comes back...  You can still stay on the site.

Try a (used?) KTM 390 duke or a Yamaha R3.

I'm lovin' those KTM390's...beautiful stylin but I'm a rather bigger (200lb) dude for 390 but I love the bike.
and same for the R3.....Love love the stylin' yamaha did on the R3's...sweet little things. Lots of fun I'm sure.

yeah.....posh one in CA right....funny you say that.
There are way way too many sweet CB1s ready to be had for 1/2 the price of that one in Cali...way way to many.

If you are not too big for the CB-1, then the 390 or R-3 can work for you too.  There are plenty of 200 lb riders on those bikes.  They have EFI and ABS... or, a CB500F with ABS?

Or, you can wait for the CBR350!

Or KTM690

I'll never touch another VFR V-anything Spacetiger.
Don't like the low rpm "on-off" feel that Vtwins and VFRs have. I had a Honda Hawk Gt650 "AND" a 2002 VFR800.....ended up not liking them at all......at all.

I like to have lightweight bikes that I can throw around left and right....the CB1 was perfect for that.
Perhaps a KTM390 could be fun.....I'm gettn' too old to have heavy bikes. Just don't like em anymore. Not for me.

I'm sure another good CB1 will pop up and now that I know a 900rr shock would make it just perfect....well....we're golden.

I know VintageHunter mate, I was kidding. I also like the idea of Leno missing out on a bike Wink

The problem with all those single cylinder bikes is they sound like glorified mopeds. Nothing like the mechanical melody of the CB-1. Those motors are meant for dirt bikes. Easy way for mfr's to save on development cost.

Stay away from KTM. Ive had 2 of them: a 620 Duke II and a 950 SM. Both were an absolute blast to ride. But my god, the issues Ive had with those bikes completely ruin the fun. When taking them for a ride you re not having a relaxed ride, you re constatly wondering when they re gonna break down and leave you stranded. Every rattle, clunk or vibration makes you shit yourself at that point. That makes them, in my eperience, utter crap to enjoy.

Why not try your luck at the other 400's of Ye Golden Age: ZXR 400, FZR 400, CBR 400.


Or, if you can fit on it, Ducati Monster. Very agile but it is a V twin.... A very smooth v twin mind you.

Even the Hornet is said to be agile as hell.

I think my next quest will be the illusive CBR400rr.
Should have fun with that.
That's a good point.

Who is it who needs to update their Photobucket account to be able to see photos?

Can anyone see this photo?

Photofuket has royally screwed everyone.
they think they can now just flick a switch and begin to charge folks.....well F' them. I'll just cancel my account. Don't care how many years of photos are on their server. Screw them.

Totally agree VintageHunter. I hope they go the way of aol (once big enough on paper to buy Time Warner) now...?

I wonder if there are any friendly sites offering alternative services. I know there are alternatives to fb and TY already. What we need is open source tech and attitudes. Sadly theres zero chance of an US gov intitiatives with this moron in charge. He's computer illiterate! as well as possessing the limited vocabulary of a 1970s Amway sales leaflet - that someone tore in half and used in a 'bathroom emergency' 30 years ago!
