1990 Honda CB-1 Test Ride!

I’ve been in the market for a new motorcycle. I’ve been wanting a new bike for a while now… I feel I outgrew my 250 Virago in the first six months. I love the Virago, but man, is she hard to get going on the freeway!

I’ve been checking Craigslist the last few weeks for a new bike. I have my dream bikes: Honda CB500 Four, Harley Sportster, Triumph Bonneville or Thruxton… not cheap.

I began looking at Honda CBR500Rs. They’re cool… sporty and fun, yet economical and reliable. Then I recalled a conversation I had with a friend that mentioned Honda CB-1s being really fun bikes. I checked Craiglist and one came up. (They come up every now and then, but not often… at least none that seem in good condition.)

I contacted the guy and was able to test ride his bike…


Great ride! Here’s a short video clip of my 20-minute test ride in the Bonny Doon area!
