Er no Viv no salt just a little dust on the back wheel after I got back from a 4 hour ride, I find myself complaining to the wife how clean the bike is not even a single fly on the CT or my visor.

It's been a cool 20c up in the mountains today :190:with a high of only 24c on the south of the Island.

I'm getting a serious lack of OCD since moving here a quick wipe over with a clean micro fibre cloth just don't do it for me.


Post ride before a wipe over :152:

Cheers Blu

I suppose you need a drop now and again to settle the dust ,Pete.  :169:  0 'C  here this morn, and got as high as + 3 , with a wind chill of - 3  :190:  Had a ride  with 2 mates to Skeggy last Sunday. First time out in 5 weeks. He likes his Kwak SX 1000 btw.

Picked the right time to fly south then didn't I :190:

I'm thinking of a second bike  prolly a naked thou I'm considering another CB1000R, Z1000, or maybe an SX if I can find one within my budget.

Had a look at one at the NEC show yesterday..... nice looking bike (in black  :038:).
No sign of the 'Camo CT' there though.... Had a chat with one of the Honda UK chaps, told him what I thought of the bike, and the things that actually need improvement - suspension/ headlight. Also said that a 3 stage traction control was not high on anyone's list of 'must haves' and that the traction control has barely been mentioned on the forum. He seemed surprised that I thought the headlight was appalling! I asked him if he had ridden a CT at night on back roads. He also said that they hadn't heard that the suspension was an issue... I asked if anyone from Honda checks the forum to see what owners have issues with - he assured me that they do. I said 'well they either can't read or aren't capable of understanding bikers needs'. He said he would feed back my odservations and that he was very greatful for the feedback.  :001:
