wet!!!!

It will always be filthy living in Northern Ireland. There is a great scene in an episode of 'Mrs. Brown's Boys" on BBC, where she has the Mormons in the house talking about Noah's Ark and they mention 40 days and nights of rain and Mrs. Brown says "sure that's the summer here". Enjoy the bike, it looks great.

Beauty of a bike! Any modding plans?

The CBF series is such an awesome line of bikes. I love my 919.

Europe gets a lot of cool bikes that we don't get here. Our societal mindset on bikes is skewed in the wrong direction.

Put on my Ermax hugger and HRC tank pad and HRC fuel cap cover. Also removed the safety stickers from the tank and the "combined abs" stickers from front mudguard. Gave it a coat of wax and went for a spin!

I love my Yamaha FZ8 but if Honda offered the CB600FA in the USA I would have bought it instead.

Nice looking bike...sort of looks like the little brother to the CB1000r.
You will like the ABS...enjoy!

thanks guys.

it is meant to look that way. they always had a 600 and 900 hornet in the range, then when they updated to the newer models the bigger one had its name changed to cb1000r but they still look the same.

it is actually the exact same bike as the cbr600f. as far as i can see literally the only difference is the removal of the fairing and different bars.
