Took the beloved striple in for its first service yesterday, lo and behold what do I get as a loaner bike but my old CB400 which they havent sold yet. Funny. My god it felt weird and underpowered, for all the trepedation when starting out on the new triple as far as height, power, and ergos, all of these things now felt so wrong on the CB400, found myself wringing its neck way more than when I owned it (not just because it wasnt mine any more..), it felt too small, but i did like being able to comfortably flat foot again when parking... Interesting to see that as a result of a bigger more powerful bike that returning to my old one I felt like my riding and confidence had improved quite a bit. I can also see the point some have made about a smaller bike you have to thrash more being more fun - however, no doubt in my mind the triple was the way to go, much prefer it. Also interestingly they had removed the baffles from the staintune on the CB and it still seemed quiet compared to the raucous snarling rasp of the arrows on the triple - never tried them with baffles out as I think it would just be ridiculous and leave me deaf. Pleased it worked out that way, got to have a good point of comparison and fall in love with the triple all over again. Surpised no one has bought the CB yet, makes me glad I didn't bother selling it privately (or rather after a half hearted effort on here decided trade was far easier).
