Say what you like....but!
on: February 11, 2015, 10:32:32 AM
The CT is a reliable bike...or at least I think so (ok shocks etc blah blah blah!)

Went into the garage today and stuck the key in and turned it, pushed the starter and guess started.

It's been sitting for months and never turned a wheel. No trickle charge....just sitting there waiting for me lol!
What do you mean it's raining....get ootside and ride the thing.

Yup , know what you mean , thing is :- is the CT the nearest two wheel  equivalent to a car????  Ok it is an idea to check your tyres  and brakes once a week or so  because you cannot get away with poor tyres on a bike , but apart from that cannot see any reason why  the bike will not last like a car. 
What p/x on a CT with 100k on the clock anybody??? :305:

Agree, that's worth a lot to me.  I had a Ducati with a datatool alarm a few years ago; starting after standing (even with an Optimate) for a week was a lottery.

Have to say my 2001 VFR800 has been exactly the same for the 4 years I have owned it. One of the main reasons I stayed with Honda and went for the CT
