My new (second hand) motorcycle, the Honda CB400 Super Four.
I’ve been riding the Vespa GTS 300 scooter for a few months now and recently been thinking about moving up to a motorcycle, I love the Vespa, but the long commute and lack of top-speed gets a bit frustrating, especially when you want to ride out of trouble and there isn’t enough grunt left to help you. Also with just a 5lt the fuel tank, and being a lazy git, it’s getting annoying having to fill her up every other day. If I lived and worked near the city then I wouldn’t even think about changing, but living 30km away from the CBD and mostly on straight dual carriageways, I need something bigger.
Being on a LAMS license, my choice of motorcycles is limited, and with a small budget, new models are out of the question, so with the help of gumtree, my search began. I don’t particularly like sports bike, prefer naked bikes with upright seating positions, which limits my choices again.
After weeks of searching, I finally found and bought a 2009 Honda CB400 Super Four, and having ridden it for a few days I absolutely love it. Its got grunt, its got the speed (top end), its got the looks, it’s nimble, it’s steady, and its black… with a touch of gold!
