1988 Honda CBR1000F from United States of America

Summary:

Most fun I can have with my pants on

Faults:

I have not had any problems during my period of ownership.

General Comments:

The CBR1000F Hurricane has to be one of Honda of America's best engineering achievements in Honda history.

For a reliable, dependable, fuel efficient, sport touring rocket ship on two wheels, this bike has consistently put smiles on my face over the years.

A little on the heavy side for a liter sport touring bike, but at 70" and 210lbs I prefer a heavier bike to keep a straight line in winds and curves. Point this scooter where you want it to go and hold on. Any hard throttle applications above 6,000 rpm are a reminder to maintain a firm grip and crouch down behind the windscreen.

Not a bike for the novice rider. Excellent overall investment, and with regular Honda Scheduled Service and 2,000-3,000 mile synthetic oil changes, chain lubes, fluid changes, etc... These bikes have gone over 100,000 miles before requiring major service to the engine and xmsn. Easy to believe once you own one and put some miles on them. Mine is 21 years old now and I hope to hold on to it for years to come.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
