Oh ho ho...so somebody went shopping, nice stuff mate. The tail bag is really good how much was the damage done? Ought to pick up one for myself so that it can service both my steeds. Would the brush be for the chain only or the tire?

Damage to the pocket was $72 for tail bag.
Brush is for chain and reverse side can be used on sprockets,etc.

Santosh,
Sounds interesting, should catch up one of these days to explore both of them. How big is the tail bag? 15 or 20 liters? Sufficient to sustain one for a week long trip?

About 16-19 ltrs.
Today i tried on the bike with the following items
Laptop, Raincoat, lunch box, backpack rain cover and some other books.
But still had some place left over. I had expanded only one side.
Perfectly fits on CBR and took care of the 18kms excellent roads of bangalore without any issues. Very easy to mount and un-mount also.

RK,

In addition to the riding accessories - the Paddock was just the icing on this thread. It looks a bit bulky and crude but the thought put in to enrich your biking experience and the effort is commendable.

800-1000 Rs is indeed very reasonable.

Thanks for this - Did you or anyone else have anything else to add to this checklist?

Looked like surface rust. Glad to hear its resolved.

Quick question - So the ride you guys had was on 6th Aug a Saturday?

Suggested next buy : On Special offer.
AXO Primato II Boots: Black - 7,499.00Rs

Whats the current post booking waiting period for the non ABS version in b'lore? Can i expect to get in a months time?

Also, which dealer would be better among all. I heard not so good/ arrogant attitude from Sapphire (JPNgr/ Jayngr), and dont want to approach them (although its closest to my place)
Swerve and Switch to the CBR. the 100+cc and grunt should not disappoint.

2 months waiting on average.

Try City Honda, St Marks Rd, Ask for Srikanth.

That's one of the exhaustive list, nothing much

I am losing count of rides i am doing these days. Been riding almost every saturday or sunday from the day i bought the bike. Around little over 2 months and 3500 kms on the odo.

Boots in queue.

Default Update - Odo reading 4002 kms

This is for people who are interested to know the mileage of CBR.
Yesterday did a 350 kms ride which included appx 25 kms of ghat section, single riding, top speed during the ride was around 130, most of the time was around 110-120 but the important change was kept the rpm at around 6-7k only.
The bike returned 37.5 kmpl

Should say very decent mileage for its engine size and its capabilities. Believe you have been conservative with your right hand but end of the day average speed should have been around 80KMPH and the mileage is pretty decent.
Reflects on the engine status as well

And a reason for me to celebrate - Saphire Honda called me today to say that I can finish all formalities and get my bike. Now, only problem is that I was expecting some money which has failed to turn up. So forced to go for finance. Do they only give my bike after finance documentation is done?

Great. I am getting 35kmpl by keeping the bike mostly between 6-7k rpm.

Yes, Naveen. They hand over only after the finance documentation is done and they get the cheque from the financing company/bank.
Are you going for a two wheeler loan ? What's the current interest rate running ?

Pm your facebook id. We have a FB group exclusive for Bangalore CBR owners.
