You don’t stop riding because you’re getting old, but you get old when you stop riding.

Buenos días from the North East

Post by Vanis on Fri 06 Nov 2015, 8:28 pm

Hello people, just saying hello from NE England. I'm a novice biker of 3 and a bit years and got a 1999 CB500 in June - should have bought one to start with! Being a 40 year old guy that weighs about the same as a teenage girl (9st) the CBF600 I had before was not much fun to ride, overweight and stubborn...I started to think I must not be that into motorbikes. This thing on the other hand feels like it's been made for me, I love it. I'm pretty terrible for buying and selling bikes in the quest for the non-existent perfect steed but I can't see myself selling this one on, like, ever. Cheers anyhoo Laughing

Aye, the avatar should have one now. I can't work out the hosting picture thing yet though, seems to happen every time I join a forum. Anyway I'm up near Gateshead. Cheers

Welcome to you mate, lovely looking CB!
I turned 40 in August but I weigh 14 1/2 st so it's a very different ride for me! Love the bike though, had it 18 years in March Very Happy
