A good reason not to have side cases

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b424iGkWe0Q

Oct 2015 purchased 2007 Phantom Grey Metallic AN650 - 7000 miles
Feb 2016 and have done more miles in 5 months than the previous owner did in 8 years.
Mar 2016 3 MC tires in 17500 miles then went Darkside - Federal Formosa FD1 165/60r 14 - now 8000 miles in and finding it far superior to the MC tyre's.

Soft side bags are safer in this way!

My buddy got caught up by his side case stopped at a light. Some woman decided she could squeeze by to make a right turn... Not so much. Tore off a good section of the bike.

I've had integrated side cases and never used them unless on a trip. I'll stick to a top case.

Honda has released its new AT. What a bike. But then you mount the panniers to load your stuff. It turns the bike into a clumsy freak and takes away a good deal of fun.

Yeah ....I like both my Strom and CBF1000 handling without the side cases on. Light and nimble.

I have no top case for the CBF so for coffee runs just strap on a laptop bag to keep the clean lines and low weight...what a thrill to wind than motor out lightly loaded.



it is such a rush.
Think the Burgman 650 in power mode but twice the horsepower, 100 lb less weight and 10,500 red line

I had the D'eauville prior to this and it had integrated cases but did not compare to the Burgman 650 and the cases had an awkward shape.
I got $4700 for the 2010 D'eauville 700 non-ABS and paid $300 more for the 2009 CBF1000 ABS plus dual link.

Deal made in heaven even for the outstanding braking alone.

I really like the Burgman 650 storage with a top case as a go anywhere solution and tolerate the side cases on the Wee and CBF when touring.

Ever since clipping that corner with the Wee I've been very careful with the side bags on.

Will you be adding automatic chain lubrication to the CBF1000 ?
I always neglect chains, and they punish me by breaking when it's most inconvenient.
I have gone the other way and purchased a used Chinese 125 CC underbone motorcycle
(Cousin to the "postie" Honda Trail and the Honda Passport sold 30 years ago)
It's fun to ride, and a breeze to move around in the garage, weighing only 200 lbs.

We've been all through that, Mac. To get adrenalin rush there's always a competition.


And surely Burgie is not designed for that. But so few compete with it when you need a storage. And that means for everything father than 100 miles.
