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

What sort of bikes do your mates ride? You're ok as long as they keep to the speed of the slowest bike.
I think you'll have a blast whichever you take Smile

In that case it's got to be the CB5, far more versatile & you won't be tempted to blast off (then pull over for a fag while they catch up!)

I went to the Manxx on my CB500, and had a great week. There's lots of slower bikes pottering about. The superbikes look a bit out of place IMHO.

Yes, the mgp/classic tt/whatever has more old bikes, british & jap. Still plenty sports bikes around, but in a minority. You won't be at a disadvantage on the cb5. I'll probably leave mine in the shed & drag my old superdream out ( if it'll start)
