Yes.

I really like the wing. Its a beast of a bike, but such a great machine. So effortless! you dont know about wind on the bike, like a car with 2 wheels.

If you ever drop it you will need a high-lift jack!

But I'm jealous, I love those kind of bikes.

It is heavy, luckily the crashbars prevent it from falling over flat. If it falls over, best is to leave it and act like it wasnt you.

My uncle used to have a wing. We used to say: "Daai woonstelblok wat jy ry is te groot vir jou!" :)

Dropped the bike yesterday morning while taking a tight turn. Crash bars caught it as I suspected. No damage at all.

It was a little heavy though...

CBR600F

Great package! I was very suprised with this bike. I liked the 600RR, but this bike is much more rider and pillion friendly and you can still do stupid speeds through the bends!

Best of all, its R85k, 35k cheaper than the 600RR ABS.

In the small bakkie class, I like the np200. The fact that the rear axle sits so far on the back, causes it to carry it's load much better.

Ek wonder hoe is die CBF600S. Sien Honda het 'n special op hulle nou vir R55'000 to einde Maart

Spandeer R7000 meer en koop die nuwe NC700X.  Baie ligter op petrol en kan vir n klein bietjie adventure duty gebruik word. Dit is n beter fiets.

Die CBF600S is redelik old school... dink aan die Suzuki Bandit.

It also carries 800 kg :)

Not that much more, but it makes a difference at the end of the day.

Although, If you are going to buy a bakkie, you can buy a true 1 tonner for 177k (np300)
