best I have ever had
Author Name: paul canton
Disadvantages: less than 40mpg when thrashed
Iv had more bikes than I can remember, and none come close to my current cbr600f4i for doing everything.
Its got a "center Stand" remember those ? Damm usefull things, very easy to slash 30kilos of a bike, just throw away all the usefull things. Proper seat for the pillions you "will" eventually take.
Enough power to keep up with all but the top spec latest tackle, and if its well ridden, quick enough to simply "keep up" period.
Really good handling when fully loaded as mine is often. Take my kids everywhere on it as I hate sitting in traffic and so do they.
I also have a cbr600 fx track bike which looks like a banger.....is is a banger, still keeps up in the fast group providing its not the day before a race (hem hem).
They hold their price better than most bikes, had mine from new in 04 and its still worth about £3000.
Reliability is simply a given ! not let me down once, I take it to get serviced and it just keeps going in return.
Wish it had the same performance and did 60mpg but you can't have everything.
I occasionally lust after a big twin again like a sp2, but I simply would end up as a toy or track bike.
Toured spain 3 times on mine, its an easy bike to rack up the miles on and be reasonably comfy on, funny though whilst going through twisty mountain roads its blissfully comfy for hours, and on motorways about a tank full is enough.
