Yes i asked the guys in practical sportsbikes would they think of doing a write up or a buyers guide on the cb , they said they consider it..but so so far they havent. Best bet is to get senior members of forum to ask them to ask practical sports bikes.. and maybe  best four or five cbs from forum they could test them.like gerry fudds bike

I was wondering about this recently. Has there been any decent articles on the CB lately? I always have a look at the latest mags but don't recall any.

it's been wet quite a few times as it happens... plus I have a tendency to ride it hard when I take it out so would be nothing new there Very Happy

I highly doubt although clean and in working order mine can be considered a model CB. I'd much rather see one of the many other honest and less tampered ones out there in a mag.

No there not like that jerrys bike(if he let them be tested on public roads.)
In practical sportsbikes they usual have couple clean standard ones and couple of modified ones when they test them and a original from factory low mileage ones

if they pick a modified one then andy has to donate his when finished.
