Ok, I've read about people wanting to 'upgrade' from their 'little' CB to a larger and more powerful manly type bike.
And myself and other more experienced riders have always commented on the wonders of this amazing bike. And how getting a more powerful bike won't make you a better rider and what are you going to do with all that power and yada yada yada. And more. All true.
Here's my problem...when I bought my CB less than a year ago, the dealer told me if I wanted to trade it in within a year they would give 90% of what I paid. That's not gonna happen I said. I love the cbF.
Now I see that Kawasaki is coming out with the Z900. Its one of those origami/transformer looking things that I don't like at all. Then I started watching YouTube videos of the First Rides. Then I start thinking, hmmm, the black with the green trellis frame looks nice. Then I start looking at the specs. 125HP, 462 pounds wet weight, not bad. Hmmm.
My other bike is very powerful so why another one? I'm no hypocrite and I do love my little CB but I'm being pulled into the darkness by some unknown force.
I spoke to my brother about it and he just shook his head. I mentioned it to my other riding buddy while we were working on his commuter scooter yesterday. He looked at the CB and said... "How can you trade it? Then you'll have two powerful bikes and what was all this about having one fun bike and one serious bike"
"Besides", he goes on "I haven't ridden it yet"
So I think I'm coming out of the spell, it was much worse a few days ago, especially since I'll be going to the dealer for the water pump replacement under warranty. If there's a Z900 on the floor I could be in trouble.
