    Hi from Melbourne

    Hi to everyone.
    I've owned my 2015 CR for nearly a year now and am really loving it.
    Its one of those bikes where you feel instantly 'at-home' and, whilst I haven't done as many Kms as I would have liked to this year (it's been a REALLY long winter), I am hoping to rectify this in the coming months
    Things I love about the bike:
    Comfort
    Riding position
    Looks
    Honda build quality
    Things that are not so great:
    Wind buffeting at highway speed
    Lack of adjustment on screen (hoping that the Givi Airflow that I have just ordered will help with both of these)
    Difficult to find a workshop manual/wiring diagram

    All in all though, a great bike that I hope to own for a few years to come while my '79 CB900F and '81 CBX1000 are going through the seemingly never ending restoration process

    Welcome Pete.

    How tall are you? I'm 5ft 10in and at a steady highway cruise speed, I don't find it so bad.

    I believe there is a wiring diagram available, but it's on a pay-per-view Honda Europe website. So you could download & print it off. There's a link in a recent thread on here somewhere.

    Thanks guys

    I am 6'3" Skids so that is probably why I get more buffeting !

    The Givi screen arrived today so hopefully that will help
    Cheers

    Welcome mate!! Sucks to be a Victorian in winter doesn't it  :001:

    FYI, I bought a 24 hour subscription a while back to a Honda EU site that has the service manual online. I basically printed what I needed, and grabbed wiring diagram :)
