I would like to introduce my new squeeze, my new ride, my new bringer of thrills – Flo

After selling my Sprint ST last week I then spent almost all my waking hours pouring over Internet forums, eBay and the local newspapers in search of a new bike until eventually I found a nice looking Honda CBR1100xx Blackbird that was being advertised only about 50 miles away, so after work my lovely wife and me drove over to have a look at the bike.

After checking the bike out and chatting to the owner a deal was struck and I rode home on my new bike.

It’s obviously very early to tell as I’ve only done about 100 miles but I’m very happy with the bike, clearly loads has already been written about this bikes amazingly powerful engine and everything I’ve read it true – WOW! But one of the things that impressed was how the bike handled, it seems to hide its weight very well.

I’m now look forward to a clear weekend where I can get out on Flo and give her a good old fashioned spanking!

Congrats on the new bike. It looks a tidy example. Just need it to stop raining now so you can enjoy it.

I'm very happy with it Mike, it's obviously all my fault the weather has been so bad, since buying the bike I don't think we have had a dry day!

Hi Rig. Nice bike. Oddly enough I was contemplating the very same bike only two days before my off! Hmm, wonder if they do one with a rocket launcher option?

Never mind the rain Rig, get out and ride, the Bird is a great bike for riding in the wet - smooth power delivery and brilliant linked brakes. Since buying mine a year ago I think well over half of the 12,700 miles have been in the wet!! Marvellous.
