    Smart advert. :Thumbup:
    Last time I was on a bike (CB200 & CB400F - yeah, a long, long time ago), :Blushing: we didn't have ventilated helmets.
    Not good on a warm, yet alone hot day.

    If they can make adverts like that, why oh why oh why, isn't there one for the ACCORD? :Rant:
    Just madness. Absolute madness.

    I have had three honda motorcyles in my otherwise yamaha motorcycle ownership. One was a Cx 650 turbo back in 85 when the manufacturers were going through a turbo phase. A cbr600 beneton colours in 1990 and a cb1000fl a few years ago. All good bikes.
    The turbo was a real blast when the turbo came on. It tried to rip your arms out!!!!!

    Those where the days of biking when the big four Japanese were out for the kill each outdoing the next in the chilli size competition..lol

    I could love to ride the eccentric CX650 but they are rare as hell in working order.

    Thats true. Not researched it but I take your word for there not being many about In working order. They were not a massive seller anyway...too expensive probably. If I remember I paid about 4k in 1985 for a B reg one. I can even remember the reg number.
    I must say it was a beautiful finish and beautifully put together.

    Absolutely right number one....us ordinary mortals would probably be spat off before we even hit the first bend. Moto GP riders are a special breed of their own.

    Hi ichiban
    Thanks for the likes. Got a few more pics of the CBR but no more of the Turbo. Got quite a few of my Yamahas but this is a Honda Forum so I'll keep them under wraps.
