Info: new work bike , replaces my ER5 which served me well for a year or so , i underrated the CBF myself by doing what i allways tell others not to do ( reading "bike experts" opinions ) it is actually a bloody good bike , it is absolutly perfect at its intended use to get me from A-B with no fuss , i now find i''m going the long way home everynight
