This is another 'just for the halibut' thread: no immediate buying plans but it's fun to talk bikes. Still need to buy one for the Mrs before I upgrade, and pay off some debts before that. A mate is looking at CBR1100-XX (Super) Blackbirds for his next bike. In having a look on Bikesales and elsewhere on his behalf, I realised there are 2006 models with low km for 7 grand or less. My Bandit is a 1999 and is over 100,000 km. Still going well, and will do me for a while, but given that new job responsibilities mean I spend a bit more time on the freeway, the extra fairing on the 'Bird would be welcome. And a Honda 7 years and 60-70,000 km younger is likely to keep on ticking for longer. Any particular caveats, suggestions or opinions?
