On Two Wheels / Big Honda's 1966.
« on: March 31, 2014, 01:27:18 AM »
Just wondering if any of you folks remember when the CB450 entered the line up?   Back in December of 1965, if my memories served me,  the CB450 was announced in a popular science or popular mechanics magazine listing the name of it as "the 444 Condor".   It would have been a swell name ranking the CB450 above the 305 Super Hawk?  When it was released in the USA in March or April of 1966 the CB450 didn't have a slogan name added to it.  As far as I know it was always known as the CB450.  I put quite a few miles on the first issue CB450's.  Huge bulbous tank, and it felt much bigger than what it was.  Many CB450's with the large tank were purchased in the United States by the Shriner Precision Riding teams.  They performed at most big parades decked out with extra lights and sirens.  The color was white on black frames.  I would love to find one now just to keep clean.  Enjoy my friends.  A little story of the biggest Honda motorcycle back then.  Who knew that in just a few years the CB750 Fours and CB500 Fours would change the ballgame.  Anybody remember the Bridgestone X6Hustler?   Or how bout the 3 cylinder Kawasaki with one pipe on one side and two on the other side?  ~  Butch

Maintenance and Servicing / Bosch Oil Filter number?
« on: March 21, 2014, 04:23:56 AM »
Anybody here know what the number interchange is from OEM Honda Oil Filter to a Bosch Number?  Am confused trying to find the correct number.  K & N oil filters were not well regarded by some other riders.  Supertech filters sold by Walmart are no longer sold there.  Amzoil oil filters were not well regarded either.  Am happy with the OEM filters but would like an option.  ~  Butch

This was my old ride.  A 2007 Vstar 1300.  Just had to ham it up once,  Found an old cigar from the summer before on my garage floor.  The rest explains itself.  Enjoy!  ~  Butch

New Member Introductions / Hello From Northern Minnesota USA

Might be tougher trying to figure out how the posting works on this website than riding my scooter in the winter time.  Anyway I'm 64 years old and tired of holding up heavy cruisers at stop lights.  So I moved down to a 2013 CB500X and it's been allot of fun.  Winter came on too quickly but Spring is now around the corner.  Been riding scooters for 53 years.  BTW I call every motorcycle a scooter, if anyone is wondering.  Hope more accessories become available here in the USA.  It is so nice to have an International group of people who enjoy riding, and who share the same Make and Model.  Learned allot already.  Thanks to everyone.  ~ Butch

New Member Introductions / center stand assist?
« on: March 04, 2014, 08:45:07 AM »
I have difficulty getting my CB500X onto the center stand.  Does anyone know if an assist handle can be attached to make it easier to get the bike onto the stand?  Is there a trick to make it easier?
