South Wales calling
on: April 17, 2022, 07:40:59 AM
Hello all, just put a deposit on a 2017 red CR, part exing my Suzuki gsxs1000, decided its time for comfort over outright speed, will be looking to fit the usual accessories once the bike arrives next month ( rear carrier, fender extenders, hand guards, longer screen etc). Tried a few different bikes - Triumph tigersport, BMW 1200rs before picking the Honda, my first Honda in 43 years of biking. Looking forward to tips and info from the forum.

Welcome, I made a similar move, from a Z1000SX as was sick of having a sore backside after an hour plus wanted Honda reliability. I'm sure you won't regret it.

Hi Goon

What part of South Wales are you in?  I am just over the old severn bridge but regularly ride the great roads you have in Wales some of which are also used for Police Motorcycle Training, they are that good.
