Hello there buddy<

Nice looking bike !!! Don't worry about any more mods>>> What you need to do is get it on the track if you havn't done so already !!! Trust me !!! I take mine on the track as often as poss & you wanna see the looks you get from the sea of gsxrs and any other wanna be racers. Grin You'll piss yourself at how fantastic a track bike the CB 1300 is. depending on how hard you wanna push, but she's very forgiving.

I take mine around Mallory and Donington and use 2nd and 3rd all the time. If you've got a.b.s then that's a bonus cos you can outbrake loads of "Fast Boys". They may well pass you on the straight cos you're 100kg heavier, but you wanna see the look they give you when you pass them in the bends !!! Grin LOL LOL LOL

I love it!!! & so should you or any other 1300 owner. You'll have a grin the size of Leicestershire, cos all the power rangers think they can ride. Some can, but there are a hell of a lot that can't, & when you tip your 1300 and hang off it around Craner curves, down through the old hairpin, up through starkeys bridge and hook a fast right through Mclean's corner there will be a whole load of respect coming your way.

Just getting mine back together after a last lap off unfortunately, but I'll be back a.s.a.p.

The 1300 engine & handling in a very well balanced frame are just fantastic in my opinion and will out handle, out brake and certainly give any other retro and many other "Sports" bikes a real run for their money. It's such an "UNDERRATED" bike that I'm glad not everyone knows about it.

So pay your £100 or so,drop your t/ps to 31psi-front 36psi-rear, get on that track & have the time of your life !!!! Believe me ! It'll be just the best time anyone will have on a CB 1300 of any sort. Grin

Cheers buddy and have fun !

Rob

Hi There
I am very new to biking, so new in fact I am booked in for my CBT next week (Midland school of Motorcycling) (you have no idea of the hoops I've had to jump through to give me her consent on that).
Going to get myself booked in for theory test and Module 1,Module 2 as soon as I can.
I am pretty dead set on getting a Honda Hornet 900 for my first bike, I love the looks and the reviews look good, I think it has everything I need.
So watch this space, hopefully I'll post up in a few weeks after Ive passed my test and gone to view a hornet 900 to buy.

Hi Hulahoop here, heres the 1999 Hornet 600 that i have just brought. Its my first big bike and i love it! It has a Stage 2 Dynojet kit fitted, Pippercross air filter, and a Renegade Exhaust. Can anyone give me a rough idea of where the bhp should be with these mods? Adjustable front forks have also been fitted, anyone recognize what bike they come from?
Thanks

hello , hope I'm doing this right , I used to be on here a few years ago.
I'm rob ,previous fireblade owner for 15 years!!!

now in my forties and being a responsible father of 2 I thought id better slow down a bit.
so after the blade I had a rubbish gs500 for a year then a versys 650 for a year and now a quite nice 06 hornet 600 , bog standard.

so hello and wishing you all safe rides.

Hi Berty/Rob, good to hear from you again. Glad you didn't give upon bikes entirely, and a hornet gets the job done very respectably.

Sheppey, that takes me back - used to live at Iwade (in the late 70's), and worked next to the bone factory at queenborough for a while. Peee-eeew!! that's all long gone, if Google Earth can be believed.

Hi all, just joined up. I currently have an Acid Pearl Yellow 2010 Hornet that I've been playing with for about a year.

In the Croydon / Surrey area so a regular visitor to Box Hill with it.

Sadly it's got a few issues at the moment but generally, a reliable piece of kit and a great peaky bundle of fun.

I'll post up a pic when I can work out how to reduce the file size...

Bob
