  2. I was looking at buying a CBR1000RR when I get off my 1year probationary, maybe not now. lol, many thanks for the info!!
  3. Why on earth not?? Honda have done the right thing and recalled the bike to fix the issue and now all is good. Unlike other korean based motorcycle companies who just put their heads in the sand and deny any major issues :roll:
  4. if you arent going to buy a bike, because of recalls, i suggest you return to commuting by foot.
    even your current ride had some factory recalls ;)
  5. Stick it in the recall sticky Joel in politics.
  6. this one predates the ol' recall sticky :)
    but i'll add it, and perhaps a T&TT mod can remove this redundant thread?
