1991 Honda CBR1000F from United States of America
From canyon carving to touring, the CBR is tough to beat
There have been no service issues with any CBR I have owned (this is my fourth).
The cam chain is noisy, but only when cold; sounds great after a warm up.
This is an outstanding all around motorcycle. When you rate handling, braking, etc consider this is a 600lb sport bike that is almost 20 years old. It doesn't do anything exceptional, but from short trips around the block to cross country rides, this bike handles it all.
It could use more wind protection, but compared to other sport bikes, it has plenty. I have seen some replacement windscreens that look like they would correct the problem, but I have never used one.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Can anyone tell me what other complete fairing kits will fit on my 1991 Honda CBR 1000f?

The Givi windshield does wonders, and really helps.

I love my '91. I had a '90 about 15 years ago. I got the itch for another CBR1000F & found one. I added 3/4 Genmar Bar Riser Bushings, a Tourmaster Cortech Tail bag with matching side bags (RED), a throttle lock and some new Michelin Pilot Road tire. Then the fun began. I rode from Southern Illinois to Charlotte, North Carolina by way of the Smokie Mountains. A great performing bike, and very comfortable.

I was wondering if you still have it, and how miles you have on the odometer? Just curious as to the max miles the engine will go.
I have a Shadow Sabre 2003 with 11,000 on it. That's the take momma for a ride bike, a very pleasant ride. Honda needs to put a batwing fairing on these. I will be adding a detachable Memphis Shades fairing in the spring.
I have an iPod and ear buds in all the time. I feel the bike, watch the road, and feel the knicks of the downshift.
I purchased a Sprint ST 2003 with handbags and 40,000 miles, and ride it as my primary means of transportation in Ohio, as often as possible. If you have never ridden a Triumph, try one; they are awesome as well. My only complaint is the seat height; I have to sort of tippy toe ball of feet thing. Would love it flat footed. Six speeds, 12/1 compression, 89 octane, canyon charger with handbags attached, and it handles and stops like a dream. I replaced the brakes myself and I am sure they were original; the back pads were wafer thin, and the fronts were at 30% when changed, and the bike has almost 50,000 miles on it.
