The CB is a fine buy and you have made a good decision.
    I was the owner of the first CB Honda sold in India and a few observations which may help enhance your experience-
    1. Set the suspension to to about 70 % toward hard and see the handling improve.
    2. When cornering , grip the tank with your thighs ( they have thoughtfully provided with a vinyl component that will allow you to do this) and enjoy the peg scraping turns.
    3. Reduce wind blast by sitting as far back ( so that your butt touches the rear seat) and aligning your helmet to be in line with the small console cover /screen .
    4.Check chain tightness at regular intervals as if the chain becomes slightly slack it will knock against the swingarm and make a noise especially in slow riding.
    5. Make it a point to use the front brakes in conjuction with the rear to avoid rear slide .
    6. Keep your mind in control as the bike really travels .

    Good Luck .
    Bows to the first CB owner, lolz.. major respects dude. And thanks for all the tips and suggestions, all taken in and I'll put in all the effort to make it a good experience. I certainly do respect the power of the bike, and keep myself in check. Still not a Honda fanatic as yet, though i love the bike. Still neutral about the rest of the crew of super-bikes, would love to experience the best and worst of all of them. Lets see where this takes me! Thank you for all the good words bro, cheers

    Firstly congratulations ! This beast is something else, looks like an Alien Warship ! As its said "With bigger power, comes bigger responsibility" I've got some queries, please help me with them, in the pictures there are no RVMs, don't you get cop'd ? You moved on from a 200 to a 1000, how does it feel and how do you manage to control it ! And lastly, wind-blast, is it really that much of a pain or its bearable ?
    Thanks, ride safe
    The only thing standing in your way, the ONLY thing you can count on, at any given time.. Is YOU

    Hey Blackside,

    Congrats on getting your CB. I was told that 2 CB's have been delivered in CBE, a black and a white. Heard some spotting in town reports as well

    I would highly recommend getting one of these:
    CB1000 R (08>) BEOWULF RADIATOR COVER,GUARD,GRILL H020 | eBay

    It's a radiator guard, and is a boon to have in the monsoons.

    Hey, it's probably a good thing that it took you this long to get your bike, you got yourself a new 2011 model, with the gold anodized front shocks. Cool!!

    Enjoy your bike. Glad I could help.

    Ride Safe.

    Congrats on the new bike.

    Be careful man. Invest in good riding gear (at least gloves and jacket). They say new tires work at only 40% grip of the tire's ideal grip. Take it easy on the first few days. Make it a practice to use both brakes. That rear brake can't stop the bike.
