    I don't know much about motorbikes, but looking at the handlebars I'd guess that was a Honda CBR 400, weighs about 163 kg, has a 6-spedd constant mesh gearbox, gives about 50 bhp at 11,500 rpm with a twin spar aluminium chassis and telescopic forks at the front and monoshock suspension at the back.

    Pink would have been nicer though!

    You have the cb1 type seat fitted to it rather than the cbr racing seat setup.

    I agree,hell my frame alone on my 900 is about 5' long but is comfortable to ride, between my bad knees and bad back, I would be hurting big time on that litlle 400. It being a CBR 400 does make it a bit better for getting off the line but I damn sure wouldn't want to ride it any distance. Hell it would take you forever to get ANYWHERE on that thing. Great for a little city cruiser but that's about it. You still couldn't kick it down and get outta any real shit with it.

    you too cmn, you have a great bike for running around the city but that's about it. Your fuckin little bike would be gasping for air for any long run and I would think that you would have the brains to admit that. Your bike is nice but hell I wouldn't have the damn thing for anything but running around the city or my little town on. To me, it's just a better version of the honda steed (piece of shit CHOPPERRRRR) because it gives you that extra bump in the low range, other than that, i's just too damn SMALL.

    Until 3 weeks ago I was riding a CBR 150, toy version of my current bike.
    last yeaR I drove it to Bangkok...2 years ago to Butterworth in malaysia.

    From ChiangMai of course.
    Petchabun several times.

    Thing was sharpish and reliable.

    2,000 km in 3 days.
    But I am very tiny.

    That' ain't fast.

    Anyway. That bike is just right for CMN. He's not a big chap and he enjoys riding it. And, as it's a Honda it'll be reliable and cheap to look after.

    Good choice mate (shit colour though).

    No, I'm just giving CMN shit, it's a nice bike and if wants to ride that bugger to wherever, then more poower to him. I just don't feel safe on something like that and would be hurting for days if I did a 1 dayer on it.

    It's a great bike for those less than say 5'8 maybe 10". Get my cranky knees, and 6'2" frame on it would be painful. Really like the idea though a tad longer with maybe, dunno 1200, or more, extra ccs some fatter tires, two less cylinders, Keep a name startin with an "H" make a decent enough bike.

    I've a yamaha (I think) automatic moped. It's really easy to drive, but it scares the life out of me riding it - And this is in the country. I love the idea of taking a massive Harley out into the hills but I just feel too exposed on a bike - whenever a lorry goes past I'm like, 'Arrghhh fcking hell'. I think the world is divided into bikers and bus passengers - Me, I'm on the No.44

    I drove a honda fighter 125cc from Pattaya to Penang and back once, took me 22 hours to get back from Penang, fok it is cold riding bikes in January, I sat behind great big lorries during the night so their engine heat would hit me, foked if I would do that again.

    I've a ~FAST~ FUN bike here in Florida:

    The problem is that as I age, the very heavy, and 'top-heavy' bike is a little more than I want to handle. If I dropped it, I'm in deep s**t!

    My Thai family is a little more conservative:


    When I get to Thailand, this is what I'm allowed to get around on:

    CMN I have the service books for your bike on PDF.

    You may require them

    I think I have the NC30, NC29, NC24 and NC31 plus a load more but it will be two weeks before I can upload it

    search for service manuals pdf of the net and there is a bike forum that will have them all availabalbe just can't remmber the name



    That is a CBR notice the sporting seat compared to yours.

    The bike below is a CBR400f



    Which has your seat.

    So I would most definetealalalelally say that your bike is a CBR400F

    Don't worry the F doesn't stand for faggot.

    Seems youwere right Quirrel, I am riding a CBRF.

    Saw a nice looking CBR today at a local dealer.
    97 CBR 400, yellow and black, perfect looking condition, nice sounding engine. 60,000 baht with plates.
    Sorely tempted. Could rent it out at 800 baht a day.

    I ride a Honda VFR 800 VTEC, it has adequate speed and acceleration, comfortable on a 8 hour trip. It suits an old codger. Actually would like a Harley but I am not gay enough to qualify.

    Ride a '98 Honda Transalp 400 and '98 Harley Heritage.

    Would love a Triumph Bonneville too but ain't got the space.
