another convert

been riding bikes for 30 years. i am bit of slag and tend to change bikes on a whim or get bored easily. I bought the hornet 900 last year, and without realising it, other bikes have come and gone but the hornet is still skulking in the garage. I love the fact that its a bit over looked , because that makes it cheaper. Mines blue ( the best colour ? ). it seems the bike has grown on me and i am struggling to find anything that ticks as many boxes. its not the fastest ( so my licence is a bit safer) theres no wind cheating screen ( so my licence is a bit safer ) its not to expensive ( so wallets a bit safer ) its a honda so it will last. I like the styling and its easy to work on. its a very neat bike for a naked.

anyone else found this bike has crept up on them ??

I am looking to change the tyres ( another sign I am going to keep it ) any suggestions. I am a fairly quick road rider and do the odd track day ( not done one on this yet so that could be interesting )

one last question does anyone know what the torques setting is for the rear wheel nut.

just noticed the suns shining so lost interst in writing anything else.....

Welcome lizard. Alot of us have hornet fever here, a few others are fighting it, but will eventually stop pretending and get a hornet.
