    Please allow me to relate to everyone a little tale which should give you a little emotional lift. I Had been corresponding with a forum member prior to and after the purchase of my new bike. He had offered valuable advise and a solution to my dislike of spoked wheels and tubed tyres. He had changed the wheels on his T100 for cast wheels from a Street Twin. Great fix but was looking a tad expensive and being a “tight Macam” was causing me much sucking of air through the teeth as I tried to find some. Said forum member contacted me to say he had found some on a well-known auction site that were definitely worth a punt, how jolly nice of him so give them a punt we did and low and behold we won them at a bargain price. Things then started to go a little wrong at this point. The wheels were originally advertised as being able to have a courier arranged but on contacting the seller he said he had changed the ad to collect only. As I live up in the North Pennines and the wheels were located where they eat things like jellied eels and pie and mash I smelled a big rat and thought the seller was trying to back out due to the bargain price I had achieved, as it turned out I was wrong and the problems were mainly down to his communication skills. I contacted my friendly forum member who without any hesitation said “don’t worry I will collect them for you” I was absolutely astounded. So as not to drag this out let me tell you briefly how this now went. This gentleman did a round trip of over 100 miles to collect these wheels, he was kept waiting at the seller's house for a considerable time. He then arranged a courier, packed the wheels very carefully and dropped them off at the courier, they have just been delivered to my house. This show of kindness and pure generosity of spirit has had a huge effect on me and restored my somewhat jaded view of human nature. Now every time when I go out on my bike I will be constantly reminded of this wonderful act (will be a lot less likely to move this one on as it does have a special meaning now). Who was this man I hear you ask, TEX, that's who. If I may I would like to use this very friendly forum to publicly thank Tex for this truly outstanding help and assistance. I have never met him a probably never will, that is indeed my loss. Geoff.

    Hi while browsing the US forums (I browse many different forooms) I came across this very handy piece of info for when your bike is stuck in gear. This chap was giving advice to someone's daughter who was stuck somewhere in the USA. 'Have her start the engine. If it is not in neutral when she turns on the ignition, apply the front brake (pull the lever) while pressing the starter button. The brake overrides the safety feature of the trans not being in neutral, after the engine starts it should downshift to 1st on its own.' Ray Nofear2trek

    Just sharing my opinion on the two great bikes I tried today. I was thinking of upgrading from my Honda NC750X 2016 to a more powerful bike for a while. Not that I was not happy about it, but just wanted to see if I was missing the so called "fun" when I was riding it. Many people comment that the ride on NC750X is boring and not exciting altogether. So today I went to a nearby bike garage and test drove a VFR800X Crossrunner 2018 and BMW F800GT 2014 reg. First the specs. On paper the Crossrunner has about 100 bhp @10000 RPM and 72.8 NM torque @9500 RPM. The BMW has about 90 bhp (@8000 RPM) and a torque of 86 NM (@5800 RPM). So I expected a substantial increase of performance for either of the two compared to my NC750X which has just 54 bhp @6000 RPM and 68 NM torque. Having driven both today I can say that the difference in acceleration was not as massive as I expected after comparing the specs. In fact, the difference was noticeable but not huge. In town and on country lanes the Crossrunner while being slighly roomier and more comfortable performed and felt exactly the same as my NC. I have never felt the need to push the engine past 6500 RPM and the "DOHC boost" has never kicked in. On motorways the DOHC never kicked in on the 6th gear, so no change here too. The area I felt the Crossrunner performing very well was a high speed overtaking when you drop down to the 5th gear and accelerate from 70 to 90 in a matter of seconds. Yet the RPM counter has never went past 8000. The BMW has performed similarly to the Crossrunner. The BMW was definitely a more fun bike to ride due to its sporty fairings and sitting position. I found the BMW suitable for both upright and leaning forward positions. There was absolutely no pressure on the wrists and forearms unlike on some sports bikes, yet when I wanted to go fast I could just lean forward and hide behind the windscreen. I felt the BMW was also more enjoyable and flickable on twisties and on roundabouts than either the NC or the Crossrunner. And it looked much sexier than both Hondas . The only downside was that being 6.1 ft tall I could not have gripped the bike by my hips fully - my knees were sticking forward and pushing against the curved fairing. For wind protection at high speeds the Crossrunner was unbeatable. My NC with its tall aftermarket Puig screen was the second and the BMW was the third. Having said that the air pressure on the BMW felt very steady and consistent at all speeds with almost no jerky buffeting, so I could lean a bit forward and have my torso supported by the oncoming airflow. Cutting the long story short, I am now postponing my plan to upgrade as I do not feel that my daily commuting in town will be improved by changing the NC to any of the two. Yes, I feel that both BMW and the Crossrunner are better suited for long trips at motorway speeds, especially the Crossrunner, but I do not do them. I guess my next step would be to go and explore the Litre+ category. Even though I feel that the NC750X would be very hard to beat for town commuting and my riding style. Also will be trying Triumph Tiger 800 and Yamaha 900 Tracer. Thanks for reading

    If you like turning money into noise, that's a decision for each individual, me I'd rather spend it on petrol and accommodation. My 16 days touring in France this year only cost very slightly more than an akrapovic system.......

    I have an old Drift 720 (links in the film and Hurley-Pugh threads if you want to see the quality). Secured to the helmet by a sticky pad so not going to be able to put any significant load on your neck. The internal batteries were good for 8 hours when new but soon dropped to 3-4. Cured by running a wire to a power pack in a pocket which is good for 24 hours. The remote batteries don't like too long outside as I discovered on Sunday. I find it a good bit of kit, you get to record the best bits of your ride and can also use it as a dash cam if there is idiocy on the roads. The current Drift range in stupid money so while I think they are goog I'd struggle to justify another. The Sena looks better value. You also need editing software. You don't want to watch 3 hours of motorway never mind anyone else. IMHO 3 minutes per film is enough, about the same time anyone wants to spend looking at your holiday snaps. Microphones are a waste of time in my experience. Wind noise defeats all, even the engine. Shouted commentary from on internal mike is poor. If you want it, add it later via the editor, it'll be clearer and matched to the edited version. If you cut a 50 second segment down to 15, you also cut the matching sound track, so need to be horse race commentator standard (and horse races are very predictable) to get a good match.

    I have checked valve clearance on a few ncs now at either 8000 intervals (700) or 16000 (750) some have not needed to be done others needed all 8 to be adjusted (tight ) customer had been quite happy the way it was running but even happier afterwards because it was smoother and revved better -have them checked at the correct mileage

    This has been discussed previously and I have made it quite clear that I don’t like loud exhausts due to the amount of anti motorcycle feeling it causes. I have fitted after market cans to get a better note but only legal ones and I keep removal baffles in. i know we will get people chanting the “ Loud cans save lives mantra” but when I have previously asked them for the proof of this they never produce any hard evidence.

    I was keeping a look out to see if I could spot you, and also a couple of people from the Nottingham branch of the Triumph Owners MC I knew were there somewhere. I didn't find any of you There were some fantastic machines there, lot's of Yamaha RDs, I had several of those in varying sizes. There was one bike I wanted to see but didn't and that was the Suzuki 250 Hustler, either I missed it or there wasn't one.

    Chap let me have a play on his new KTM Super Duke 1290. Tuned 180 BHP OMG it was terrifying, I have NEVER been on a bike with so much raw power. You can dial it down in the settings but hooligan mode, what a brute. Easy wheely in 3rd and 4th already above 7... I shall stick to the NC, that bike scared me and i barely gave it any beans

    You are a (very) bad man, Bri. You see, for me at least, a motorcycle has to be beautiful. If it doesn’t make your heart skip when you open the garage door, what’s the point? Only twice have I bought bikes that I was able to ignore the looks and prioritise the ‘function’ and I never gelled with either - although both were superb at their chosen task. I would rather have a beautiful motorcycle that has some minor flaws than one that functions perfectly that I can’t bear to look at. Shallow? Possibly. But (this) man’s relationship with his two wheels is complex...

    The point is you don’t buy a Crossrunner if fuel consumption is a priority. Really the bikes are aimed at two different markets and both are good at what they are designed to do.

    ........ oh don't get me started on tractors with loud exhausts pulling caravans!! I can't believe farmers spend all that money on an Akropovic exhaust just to make it sound louder or do they actually think it will improve the pulling power when they are towing a caravan? Madness, sheer madness

    Just past the 1,000-mile mark with the T100 today and everything clicked. Why do I say this, well I changed from a Honda CB500X which I was very happy with and after the first couple of days of "shiny new thing" overreaction I was having a few concerns as to whether I had done the right thing or made a terrible mistake. What caused the doubts. Partly due to the bike being new, let me explain. I run an engine in not by paying any great attention to rpm but by gradually increasing "load" and duration of that load. This demands a fair bit of focus from me so coming from an 8,000 mile, configured to my requirements Honda to a different, new (read "tight") and ergonomically dissimilar machine made for a less than relaxing experience. Also the transition from running Michelin PR4,s to the Pirelli Phantoms took some getting used. However, as I eluded to earlier today I obviously had spent enough time in the saddle to acclimatise, stopped concentrating on the breaking in of the bike and adapted to the very different characteristics of the tyres, just relaxed and totally gelled with the bike. Joy sheer joy and more than a modicum of relief. Geoff.

    One of my near neighbours has a much customised big Victory motorcycle, with loud pipes. He only seems to use it on the weekend, when the weather is good, and tends to set off mid morning and returns early evening. I'm fine with that, and wave to him when we meet. Another near neighbour has a Scottish Terrier type dog, which he takes for a walk every morning around 06.30 past my house. This hound from hell, takes great delight in yapping at everything and anything. Guess which neighbour I'm plotting to something unmentionable to?

    I have plenty enough irritating loud noise at an uncomfortable frequency from him indoors, I need not have it while out on the bike. Joking aside, loud exhausts do little but make everyone who isn't a bike rider annoyed IMO.

    KTM has built their street brand around being the hooligan tool of choice and no suprise they've attracted the sportsbike owner with power and handling akin, or better than 'last years' sportsbike all in a easier riding position for the creaky bits. I know/have met owenrs from both ends of the spectrum. One guy out or way has moved from sportsbikes (also an R1) and is a bit of loon, he can certainly ride but too quick for my liking, he could tow me faster than I can ride These riders are to be looked upon in awe/pity/envy/fear/derision depending on your point of view and how youre feeling that day The other type is the guy/gal who has to have the latest kit with all the bells and whistles and ATGATT but has no need or idea how to use and even less inclination to do so. I met one of these at my last IAM track day . He started by telling the rest of us in the group how much power his KTM 1290 had but that he has set the 'limiter' to reduce this to a manageable level , then spouts about how it has cornering ABS so 'if he wanted to' he could actually brake going round a corner (really, how could such a thing even be imagined let alone possible? before finally ending off with some drivel about lean angle traction & wheely control as if any of us were listening let alone interested by that stage. Two sessions later he was asking whether my ten year old air cooled, non ABS, non traction controlled, non power mode, non active suspension Italian twin has been 'tuned' and 'what tyre pressures I'm running' as he was surprised I was able to lap him ..... in a 6 lap sesson. I let him into the secret of what tyre pressures to use before heading over to the toilets to flush away the waft of bullshit. These riders are to be looked upon in awe/pity/envy/fear/derision depending on your point of view and how you're feeling that day

    What is it with inner tubes, I've done 9000 miles on my CRF on and off road with no problems. I've probably done over 200,000 miles on bikes with tubes and only had one puncture, and that was on a Yamaha Townmate from a badly fitted spoke. I've only had a couple of punctures on other bikes that didn't have tubes over probably another 150,000 miles. I wouldn't let spoked wheels and tubes stop me buying a bike, in fact it would not influence the decision for me at all. and I can fit a new tube comfortably in an hour At the roadside. Not as quick as a plug I grant you, but pretty straightforward. And I change and balance my own tyres, very rewarding. Fear makes the wolf look bigger.........😉

    Which is better? An apple or an orange? That’s what you’re comparing here. The assumption that an NC750 and a VFR800X are somehow the ‘same’ and can be directly compared to each other is deeply flawed. Both have medium size engines and the word Honda on them, but that’s where the comparison ends. Different bikes (designed by different engineers) for different people entirely. A VFR will cost more than a Tiger or Versys, it’s more expensive to make. Two cylinder heads (not to mention the variable valve tech) and four camshafts will easily add the difference in price. Think I’m wrong? Got news for you.. You buy what suits your needs, your tastes and your budget. Apple? Orange? Or, just maybe, a peach?

    Finally got the seat back and the bike is ready for a fairly long trip in two weeks time I've been out for a few miles to see what the difference is so here we go The upholsterer removed the original cover and found that the foam was completely water logged. The cover was in excellent condition so I am not sure where the water came from but the bike does live outside in all weathers. So after drying the foam an additional layer of foam was added to the top of the original and then sculpted. there was a choice of three foams, soft meduim and firm all 1" thick. I tried all three on the bike and have chosen the firm option. The cover material was a 'four way' stretch material and had to be ordered specially due to the shape of the foam. The standard two way stretch material would not cover the foam without a crease or some additional stitching. Overall there has been some increase in seat height but it has not caused a problem with leg length Comfort so far is much improved (well it couldn't get any worse). There is much less feed back from vibrations through the bike which was the most noticeable thing. And there is much less variation in the padding from the front of the seat upto the passenger seat. You can move up and down the seat without any changes in comfort. The lower front has gone too. So where ever you sit you don't slide down. It is much firmer but with more support so we will see how we get on with a ride up to Barmouth in a couple of weeks. Cost? £80 Work was done by Smiffys.

    Trev, if you are worried what young women think of your hair you haven't ridden far enough. I think its a fair gauge of a good days ride; Worry about hair, want to wash flies off headlight, oil chain: Not far enough. Fancy a beer, a shower with minor adjustment to hair, another beer, curry, more beer: Perfect Fancy a cuppa, a shower, hotel fish & chips and an early night, don't care if you look like your dad: A little too far/need to get out more often. Neck two stubbies, two litres of water, pass out and wake up with a hangover, no thought of hair: Too far Andy

    When going through the likely suspects on the bike I did take off all the connectors I could reach and inspected/cleaned them (including taking the dash out) put it all together and it was still the same. Today I went to the mechanic and stole his van to take my bike to his place, on taking the bike off the van I ran it up and down the large car park and the gears were shifting normally but the MIL was still on. He plugged in the diagnostic computer and it had recorded a display communication fault so he cleared the codes and the light went off. Best guess is that some water had got into the dash plug triggering a fault but by the time I got around to checking everything it had probably dried itself off so the cure for avoiding this is obviously to stop washing it! Anyhoo, I gave it a sound thrashing on the way home and all is well. As an afterthought, I am sure Honda could have found a more awkward place to put the diagnostic plug. Andy.

    I enjoyed mine for touring although had to refill at around 150 miles. Certainly more comfortable with Heli Bars fitted and spoiler fitted to the standard screen. Certainly more power than most people will need. I used DCT on the motorway and A Roads but manual most of the time but that was just a matter of personal choice. Obviously shaft drive is a big plus point. Another is the build quality which is very good. The reason I changed it was that at my age I found it a bit heavy for moving around although as Tony says it's not noticeable when on the move.I would certainly recommend one

    The good news with an older Jap bike,especially a 2 stroke, is that most parts are available and (nearly) everything is pretty straightforward. However as even X7's become 'sought after' by the back to 100% original shiny bike brigade then spares can become rarer and more expensive. I'm currently hmmming over a NOS original front mudguard to replace the after market one on mine, £140 to you Sir seems a bit steep although probably not much more than a placcy one would cost for our depreciating modern bikes. Go on Andy, you know you want to, think of the endless hours of fun you could have again cursing at the vagaries of 70's engieering and 21st Century pricing

    The rain arrived as I got it home, Rocker.....typical. Felt good on the 25 mile run though. Fast enough to keep up with the traffic (even during a lighter throttle touch run in). Comfortable, surprisingly. Plenty of leg and arm room. Seat fine. Gearbox 20 times better than the NC. No clunk into gear. How do they do that? Bit of a head-turner....particularly to the neighbours' wives! The bike that is!!! It's certainly fun and small bikes have a certain appeal and grin factor. You have some smiles coming your way.... Even parked it in the porch, for a laugh....

    I have two issues, one of which is common to the X-Max 400 and one which is relatively unique to the Beamer. A) Where's the storage? Surely the entire reason you buy a mid size scooter is because it has sufficient performance to think about dual carriageways while being able to carry everything you could conceivably need in it. This BMW is severely lacking in that department (I have similar issues with the Integra) and so I must ask what's the point? B ) Cost. Having ridden an X-Max 400 and the previous Forza 300 there is really not a lot between them in performance stakes. The acceleration up to 60 felt roughly on a par; sure the X-Max had slightly more top end but not enough to really be of any import. The Forza 300 still exceeded the speed limit easily. And yet it's well over a grand cheaper and achieves better economy. I can't help but feel the 300 of many manufacturers is a sort of "sweet spot" unless you go up to the big scooters which are essentially miniature touring bikes. I'unno just not convinced by the gimmicks. The Forza 300 should, by rights, by 98% of what the C400X is and cost a lot less.

    So I had my first issue with the bike. At around 40k kms on the clock the engine become noisier at around 3500rpm. Slowly the noise moved down to 2500rpm but become heavier. As I was not sure if the dealer had checked the valve clearance I decided to check them. It was a bit of surprise to find some "spare parts" in the engine head It turned out to be a broken cam chain tensioner (Seen in the upper left corner) I ordered a new one and replaced it. As per the service manual to do so the cam head cover should be removed as well as the thermostat. However I managed to remove the tensioner by just unscrewing the two bolts on the block itself. It was a bit tricky as the one under the thermostat cannot be removed but the space was just enough to pull it up and remove the old and to install the new tensioner. Unfortunately one piece of the old tensioner is missing and I suspect it has fallen in the oil pan. The procedure takes about an one and a half hours but it is worth checking the chain tensioner condition once every 15-20k kms ...

    I have no strong feelings either way, however, I doubt the anti motorcycle feeling is all down to loud exhausts, it's just something else that people can latch on to. Seeing a bike doing inappropriate speeds in urban areas or being overtaken by a bike that makes your 60mph look like you're hardly moving doesn't help with people's perception of us. Yesterday I nearly scared a woman half to death. She was stopped at a set of lights, front of the queue, car windows open and I was filtering. By the time I reached the front and her car I was barely moving and coasting. As I pulled alongside her she screamed and jumped so much I think it was only the seatbelt that stopped her hitting the roof. She was watching the lights so didn't see me and she certainly didn't hear me. I apologised for startling her. Thought. If you scare someone half to death twice do they actually die?

    I also have to give a mention to Lloyd’s Honda Carlisle who helped me out when my first Crossrunner got knocked over when I was on my way to Scotland. The only real damage was a bent front brake lever. I went in as a complete stranger told them what had happenedand asked if they had a lever. They hadn’t but the guy said would you like a coffee whilst we try and sort it. Whilst I was drinking the free coffee he took a lever off a brand new bike in the show room and fitted it to mine. They only charged me the price of a lever. I was so impressed by the service that on my return home I wrote both to the manager of Lloyd’s and to the Honda customer service department.

    No surprise that I will say Kent M/Cs are excellent. We have been using them for years and they are the main reason we stick with Honda’s. . We have 2 dealers within walking distance of our house but prefer to travel 25 miles to get good service. At least one other member of this forum comes from Essex to deal with them. I know of several people who travel past other Honda dealers to deal with them. The owner lives on site and is there the vast majority of the time. Only today another of the technicians was made a Honda Master Technician. Servicing costs are reasonable and they never do extra work without asking first. Showroom is always neat and tidy and they usually have a good range of demo bikes They go the extra mile to help people including foreign riders coming from or going to the port or tunnel. Decent cafe on site open 7 days a week and they also have their own training school with a very high pass rate.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm now using 2 U-locks on the back wheel (one alarmed) and one on the front wheel, and also a very chunky front disc lock with an alarm, plus the gate to my front yard is padlocked so hopefully the next time they will notice all this and decide to look elsewhere. If I go on away on holiday I may even remove the front wheel. Nothing much else I can do. It's a nuisance having to go to these lengths but better than the bike getting stolen.

    You all know by now that the beloved CB has gone - replaced by (another) NC750S and we're loving it. My grandad-style of riding these days means that I was short-shifting nearly everywhere on the CB anyway so the NC is perfect. It's light (relatively - It's like having a 125 with attitude). It's low too, and will easily out accelerate most cars anyway. 80mpg and not so precious that we can't simply throw a leg over it whenever we fancy - regardless of the weather forecast. We're home at last

    Yes, I have had the pleasure Graham. I love it. As much as for what it represents as for what it does. It’s the first large air cooled Honda for 20 years and the design team were first sent to the Honda museum at Motegi to ride bikes like the CB400F, CB750 and CB900 before being allowed to start work. There are two CB1100 models, the EX has 18” spoked alloy wheels, higher bars and lashings of (top quality) chrome. The RS (as you know) comes with cast wheels, uprated suspension, radial brakes and so on. It also has a flatter bar and different seat. They were so obsessed with getting the details ‘right’ they altered the valve timing between cylinders 1&2 and 3&4, giving it an almost ‘carbs out of balance’ idle! It’s quite heavy and (due to getting an air cooled engine through the Euro 4 emissions testing) not that powerful at 88 hp. Goes well though.. Sadly they left the ‘home market’ speed limiter in place on the export bikes and it runs out room at 180 kph (it does that in fourth, leaving the top two gears as ‘overdrives’). I am struggling to find a convincing reason to not buy the red one in my dealers! Edit: https://www.bennetts.co.uk/bikesocial/reviews/bikes/honda/honda-cb1100-ex---rs-first-ride-and-review
