new bike coming

Post  terry lees on Sun Oct 04 2015, 18:30

First topic message reminder :

Didn't really know where to post this, so took the plunge and posted it here. Got quite a good price for the Honda CBF1000 GT, so its gone, ordered a new machine for delivery next Feb. Chris Eddie and a couple of others know what it is, but might surprise a few more when they see it.

Half fancied one of them 1200 GS thingies, but way too tall for this little fella, are you sure they do one with a 760mm seat?

Mm interesting, perhaps a tad to heavy for me in the twilight of my youth, that and the height is why I disposed of my FJR, wish I was taller, slimmer and younger and I would still be astride my beloved FJR. Bike of the century for me.

One of these with a low seat option - it's got a shaft drive, pretty certain that will be a prerequisite.

Right, so my nose is heading shaft drive, maybe Hinckley, maybe Munich, maybe elsewhere ....

Doubt it's Yamaha's way, Honda - umm maybe, but probably not. Liked the Tracer for a few minutes, right but not quite ...

I wasn't going to play this game, but one more stab at pinning the tail on the donkey


The 800cc version of this

Being a Leicester lad, I'd pin my hopes on Hinckley being the winner Wink

Didn't know they did a 800 version with shaft drive, but anyway it isn't a Triumph. Good try though.

I know it's not shaft driven, but, well I suppose it's worth a punt  Don\'t Know

No idea if there's a factory option for the Tez Von Shorthausens of this world though Igor

It might have been an option, with a low seat, really like the spec tho. But shaft drive is an imperative you are so hot you're almost on fire. come on Tel you're almost there.
