Having trawled the internet for a decent CBR1100 for the last two or three weeks and having been let down with a purchase my luck changed a little today as i went to view and decided to buy a S reg carb model BB. 31 k miles, vgc and ...........................................RED! Now in some ways Andybirdless helped with this as i was after a late model and low mileage bike however, Andy's advice re mileage doesn't matter prompted me to change direction with my needs, so thanks Andy you have help grow the biker population by one, hope your sat down when reading this ! Anyway, the bike appear very clean and has a stack of supporting docs, it is a two owner bike that looks to have been treated respectfully over the years so hopefully wont be a money pit, that is of course until i start tailoring it to my taste so, a couple of questions i have are, I need a seat so whats on offer or recomended? What would be must do's on the carb models and are the MRA vario screens effective? The first job i will need to do is remove the full GIVI pannier and top box kit, one because they are way to big for my needs and secondly they are red and look naff, i will post some pics and offer them up on here, i would imagine they can be painted? All for now and welcome thoughts.
