Hi all
Just a quick hello, I have been riding bikes since the 60's. From 250cc to 1100cc supersports. I now own two bikes a 1997 cb400-4 nc36 50th Anniversary Edition (the one with 4 separate exhausts). I also brought a cb500f new in December 2018 as there was a 500 saving off the rrp.

Thanks Bam it is appreciated.
I remember going to Canada a few years ago, I have friends in Kelowna & Vancouver Island. BC, great country and people. most of the bikes I have seen over there were either hogs or pocket rocket kwakas (zzr).

A couple of extras I put on my bike:
Puig screen, Centre stand, tank protector, TomTom bracket etc. Givi top box mono key rear carrier rack. Also front fender extender & rear chain and mud guard. Plus SW Motech Blaze brackets that fit on rear footrest brackets, stainless steel rods for soft panniers are in the shed for when I need them.

I have a couple of Givi spot/fog lights in the shed so next job is to fit them, maybe on the front mudguard/fender by the reflectors. have to source some brackets though.

Thanks for all the pictures, I was born in Burham in Kent and lived in the Milton keynes area for the first 22 years of my life, before moving to the south of France for a few years and then to the USA!! Love to see a few pictures of the UK, but still no desire to ever move back there!! Those are great looking bikes..
