Like most people I have owened loads of bikes but I must confess that this is without doubt the best bike I have ever had.
I have ridden bikes for about 35 years and have enjoyed every second of it. At work I have a FJR 1300 and until recently I had a Daytona 955i which I must say was also a good bike. As good as that was though it does not compare in any way to my current BB, indeed for me any I don't think any other bike could. Whilst I have only owned one for a short period I am totally biased towards its all round capabilities. It has 26,000 on the clock, is Titanium in colour and Is in what I would describe as show room condition. For a bike this old the build quality is second to none. I have made only some slight changes namely, clear indicators, adjustable levers, double bubble screen and have added a radiator grill and a couple of silver mesh grills for the two side vents n/s and o/s. The power delivery is exceptional as is the handling. The bike is so well planted and easy to ride although I wouldnt recommend it to the novice rider. I've been fortunate enough to have completed advanced motorcycle training (work) and even with these perhaps enhanced skills this bike tests you to the max. I don't think I will ever want to own different type of bike. The Honda Blackbird is the bike to own once you have tried all the others.
