Winter mods

Well. It's the start of another season. I have spent the winter months buying and fitting all kinds of bling to the bike (including; Pazzos, Rossocromo hugger & chainguard and an EZ x-ring chain, in blue of course).

I like the contrast with the blue chain - very striking.

Folks, don't forget this is a cb1krr, not a 9r w/ and usd conversion.

Does look very nice in white, always liked white...like black better, but white is nice.

A stubby gp style zorst mod might be in order.

They are both stock Honda items.

Thanks for the comments all. Maybe Honda will change their minds - if not at least you now know what you are missing!

She's a beauty hass. Down here we have a choice between Dragon Green Metallic and Pearl Nightstar Black.

It's taken me awhile, alright all of 5 mins, to come round and now love the look of the CB1000R. My first thoughts when I saw it at the dealerships here was, I wasn't a fun of the sharper lines/futuristic look. But now,

I really need to get off my backside and organise a test ride.

dear hass,

anytime you want to crate that thing up and ship it over to the U.S., I'll gladly a ride on it for you... you know... to make sure everything works alright and the new additions function correctly.

There is actually a company in the UK called Doble that ships all over the world. I am sure they would be happy to send one over!

The new price of a CB1000R in the UK is £7,900 which is about US$11,500, but that includes 17.5% sales tax which I believe would be deducted in an export. So then the price is about US$9,500 + shipping.
