MANHOC
A great day out on an impromptu mystery ride out organised by Phil.
No set plan but visited the Ponderosa, Llangollen, Bala, Ffestiniog and Betws y coed. 8 bikes plus a Harley, no discrimination at our club!
On route we found some great roads, one or two more by accident than intent, thanks to Phil's getting a bit lost. At least Malc got us back on track otherwise we'd have been in Birkenhead!.
Big thanks to Paul our Harley man for buying us with ice creams at Bala. It's surprising what a 99 can do!
A great day out in good company.
Only drawback was I missed my siesta.
How the miles fly by when your enjoying yourselves, only 212 miles.
Don't worry about the name guys, it,s me David Rhodes

  Hey, I'm Chris
Posted by: ChrisCB400N - 06-15-2018, 01:51 PM - Forum: Introduce yourself here - Replies (12)

I'm British and live in Osnabrueck,  North Germany. I've recently retired, so at the beginning of May, I bought a 1981 CB 400 N. According to the registration, it was born (?) with 43 bhp, but I'm guessing that some of the hp's have left the paddock for greener grass elsewhere. Maybe I can get some back, maybe not, we shall see....

The bike itself is flying its original (metallic-red) colours and trim, obviously some scratches, a couple of tiny dents but on the  whole, it's in a very honest condition. The previous (74 y.o.) owner had renewed the tyres, had the wheels custom painted (black with a red stripe) and I'm measuring  almost new brake disks (5mm): unfortunately he suffered a back/neck problem which after surgery meant - no more biking for him....

Im not planning much for 2018 - probably just day rides and weekend tours as I need to get used to the bike properly and sort a few things out. I've previously owned a couple of Beemers (Bombadier - F650's), the first was stolen in Bulgaria, the second managed 80,000 km in a year travelling to the very edges of the world  OZ, NZ, USA and Canada.

I chose the Honda for a tour I'm planning in 2019 - starting off from Germany and traveling through France, Spain, Portugal, Gibraltar and then over to Morocco for further adventures - about 3-4 months in all and I felt I needed a bike that #1, wouldn't invite immediate thievery and #2, I could work on along the way - no complications; no cat, no injection and no computer. Will I blog it ? - still thinking about that....

What I'm hoping to gain from HOC membership ? Certainly some touring/ technical advice and maybe some pointing in the right direction for sourcing parts. I'm certainly willing to give my  advice on long distance touring/touring to the very edges of the world (see above), touring in Germany and anything else I can.

Blue Skies to all...

Chris

I,m an old boy who has never grown up, and have had bikes most of my life

First bike was a Honda SS50 (5 speed) which I ran into the ground traveling to work

Next bike after a long break was a brand new Kawasaki AR125 , which was used to pass the test, and then restored to full power (great fun)

Then came a brand new Yamaha RD350YPVS which was stolen and never recovered (very sad day)

Next came a Kawasaki GPX750R . This was sold when my first child arrived

Then I had a big break, and got myself a ZXR636R (carb version) , I sold this two years later for more than I paid for it as it was mint condition

Then another break and the Honda NC30 (1989) and Honda NSR125R (2001) are now my play things..

I think these will be my last bikes , but you never know ...............

Hi there all,

Im a new member and a new biker  Smile

Im a mature chap who has wanted to get into biking for years and years. I've got my Mod 1 coming up soon and fingers crossed, hope to proceed got the Mod 2 ASAP.

I've decided to by an Africa Twin Adventure Sport - I'm a tall chap and this style of bike just seems to suite me. So, although Ive been driving cars for 35+ years i have no 'no claims' bonus for a bike so need a good insurance company that is set up for new but mature bikers - advise please?

I guess that I should also be joining the Honda owners club, anything else?

Security, the insurance companies ask about security devices, what is standard and what should I add to reduce the premium?

All guidance and advise will be gratefully received.

Being a new Honda owner and new member, I though I would say hi. 
I’ve got a cbf600s from 2004 which is my first proper bike. 

Before I have been a BSA chap but after it dawned on me that I was struggling to kick them over and I spent more time in the garage spending money and cursing them than actually riding them, I thought ‘sod it, I’ve got a full licence and I want something thing I can use regularly without sitting there waiting for something to break’ 

I’ve got one or two questions that I’ll pop in the appropriate sections and I look forward to your wisdom and guidance

Hi all,

Been off bikes for too many years, now 55 and time to reacquaint.

Living in Spain and just bought a pretty decent condition 1977 Honda CB750 Four F1 SuperSport....in yellow, obviously.

Needs a couple of minor things but runs and getting it insured next week.

Will be looking for all sorts of advice with it over the coming months as I am a former office bod, who doesn't know one end of a big end from another.....just enjoy riding.

Even checked the original sellers (Bennetts of Barnsley), and they are still going today....brilliant.

I'll be back,

Awksie.
