I do like this thread. It brings out a lot of catty remarks 😸

That rear rack looks sturdy enough to carry at least one well-filled picnic hamper, mike, lest you become peckish between bakery-cafe stops on the road.

But where's CB650R we are all eagerly awaiting news of??
Out with the not-so-old and in with the very new. The bike just arrived...

Seeing this never-ending parade of trucks delivering new bikes to chez Smith must make your neighbours think you have won the Lottery, Mike. I certainly do!
CB looks good - but I still cannot see one up here... what's the DVF - another BM of some description?

No lotto winner, just a hard-working battler, Los.

A very tidy looking package. Just spin those fork reflectors off and it will look the biz’.

Those 4 x pots sound the biz. Nice n’ lite and looking forward to taking but only after little run out on the CUB. Did forget to mention I love the CUB?

I must say the CB650 has excellent balance

Well, LoS - I’m not one to collect things/bikes, but I’m thinking about an R1250. The only thing holding back is my current LC is so well set up (for my needs) it’s ready to go on a long-haul touring trip at a moments notice. But, another BMW of sorts could be on the cards.

I can just see you poodling down to your favourite hipster bar on a shiny R18 for an espresso martini, Mike

Nothin' wrong with collecting! If my closest dealer (120 km distant) wasn't such a dufus, I'd probably have an R1250RS sitting in my garage right now. When I bought the 2016 R, I really wanted an RS, but intensely disliked the colour selection. Then I did a nice long test run an a 1250 last year and was impressed. Oh well, it's not urgent, so ...

I went out for a short spin on the Scrambler on some twisty gravel that turned into a 350km adventure, and my 1250 purchase thoughts turned to upgrading the Scrambler suspension instead. I'll have one more go at some homemade solutions, but I see Ohlins or Wilbers in its future. Other than its less-than-stellar performance on rough washboard roads, it's loads of fun. Perhaps something to add to your collection?

Looks like Nigel has got his spot staked out on the pillion already.
As soon as I wheeled the Honda into the shed it only took a millisecond for Nigel to jump up on the pillion seat. However, the new waxy film on the seat causes Nigie to slide off. It seems, for now, he's not all that I pressed with the new Honda.

The size of my collection is limited by the space on offer in the shed - limited space does force me to churn rather than collect. That said, I can't see myself churning out the CUB. I am fighting the urge not to put a deposit on a CT125. Although it wouldn't take-up that much space...

I was talking about the wet spot. Or is that yours? :ROFLMAO:

If there's a wet spot then that would be mine.
