Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Very good  post by stormbringer,
u can nearly use all power of cb on the road, u cant nowadays on high powered ones

Seconded. For general road riding the cb5 is enough bike for most of the time. I've owned an sv650s (curvy frame) and its the only thing that comes close overall, with a good old midrange shove. Cramped riding position though so it had to go, I got a second cb5 instead.

hi stormbringer if you ever get the chance to go to the isle of man you must ride the mountain course it is brilliant you go through towns and villages as well as over the mountain and the scenery is breath taking as badseeds will testify

Yes. That lucky bastard Wink

Or was that merely being a decisive kinda guy? Afterall, it's only road.

I could go to the TT, overland. A matter of petrol, determination and time. Which brings us back to the bucket list and priorities. Nobody say a thing! - Y'all got your families and mortgages, so don't you point a finger at me. I'll have to cross six countries to go there, you've got to  - well - take the ferry...
