Afternoon all  :152:

Standard story here I'd guess: 40 ish year old bloke, ridden bikes for decades, will be trading in a VFR800 VTEC for a new CT SE\Highlander in a couple of weeks time.  I've spent 5-6 years on VFR800's and can't fault them, so just fancy a change, slightly more comfort and a bit more grunt.  C J Ball in Norwich are a good Honda dealer, Honda's are well made, so a CT was the logical choice.  I'll give it a few years\miles and see how we get on but the test ride was certainly fun!

Having had a look around the forum already I'd imagine I'll be joining in discussions relating to tyres (comes with Battle Wings), screens (comes with both standard and touring) and suspension adjustments (more rear preload normally does me) at some point.  Thankfully there seems very little else to fix\replace\update\fiddle with.

Best regards - Stuart.

 :400: to the forum, plenty of us add our own bits n bobs to make the experience more compatible with our own needs, the good thing is they appear to be reliable unlike plenty of other manufacturers who are having plenty of issues.

Enjoy the new bike
