Just wanted to introduce my self. My names Scott from Brisbane Australia and the proud owner of a brand spankin' CB900 Hornet in bergundy red, optioned up with the screen (not sure about the brown colour though), crash knobs and ventura rack and bag.
What a great bike, fast, comfortable, good on the petrol and lots of info on the net about it, especially here!
First Impressions?? It accelerates in nearly any gear from an idle, and gets off the mark nice and quick. I love the throaty sound around 3500 rpm when on the throttle. I like how it gets some sparks from the footpeg bolt thingies at night in tight corners too. Comfortable for pillions as well.
On the downside, its a little too quiet (hmmm, baffle-ectomy may be in order), the ignition key can be hard to get in a times, and that little screw on the clutch side pillion peg that seems to fall out. The paint on the silver sideplates seems to be a little bit thin as well and scuffs with jeans or nylons.
Other than those lil' negatives, what a kick [email protected]
Thanx for the great forum too, so much info, even found the workshop manual for my new baby!!
