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

CB500 Endurance Run

Post by GollyGosh on Mon 23 Oct 2017, 5:04 pm

Another Moto Revue article on Miss CB AKA 'Granny'

In 2009 Moto Revue undertook an unofficial 24 Hour Endurance Run before the Bol d'Or with their CB500 then having already done 350,000Km.

Needless to say the bike performed flawlessy.  The humans, well not so ....

English Translation HERE


The article was found at http://xavier26.free.fr/index.php

He is a Honda fan having two 1999 CB500 one naked and one faired, a 2004 CBF500, 2003 VTR1000 F and to be different a 2002 Fazer 600

There are more articles there which I will translate at some point. study


Edit:  In the article there is a turn referred to: as the left of "the general entrance where one does not enter" 
 I've
just figured out it is a reference to the entrance of the Bol d'Or circuit.  There is a picture earlier in the article of a man and dog telling them to 'go away'
