    Hi,

    Just added another 3000 km's after the head work. No issue's to report. The bike is starting just as easy as before changing the spark plug type.
    I know, it's a little boring, but that's the way it is. I hope to put over 10K km's on the bike this summer, so 7K to go....

    Well, the only thing I can post to make this a little more exiting is maybe a few pictures ?

    Uhhhh what do they say, “A picture is worth a thousand words”. I may not have a thousand, but your photos make envious for those 75 degree F days/eve’s when your butt gets sore from riding, but you had a great time doing it. Great pics, thanks.

    Hi,

    Another 3500 miles added on to the odo. First of september I'm switch jobs, and have to return my company car. Now I have a choice on what kind of vehicle I take for a ride. One-way to my new job is 56 km, so very doable on the CB450 K0, K1, K2 or CB72 or maybe the CB400f. And if it raines I can always take the Toyota prius for a spin.

    No problems to mention, everything went fine so far,

    Hi,

    I joined august 2010, now it's august 2019, so 9 years of Honda CB450's, and specially the K0. In all those years I got used to the bike (and the bike probably to me....). One of my favourite rides in the spring, summer and autumn. Also one of my favourites on back-roads, and high-ways. The last 3 weeks I drove more then 2000 miles, to several costumers and motorcycle enthusiasts. In the picture a very nice original Dutch CB77, not a CB72, but a CB77 (very rare, because most CB77 were sold in the US). The original winkers are mounted too.

    Nothing to report other then oiling my chain once in a while,

    I am very envious of what seems to be a traffic-free commute. A 450 would be a wonderful way to spend those miles

    Hi,

    Yes, a traffic-free /low commute indeed. 60 km's in total, with at least 50 km's of mainly empty roads.
    Unfortunately it's raining for a few weeks now, so not much riding lately. I hope I can ride the K0 a few times before winter kick's in.
    I have no plans of changing anything on the bike, and will use it in spring just the way as I used it this year. The only thing I have to change is the rear tire.

    During winter I will work on an early CB72'62, and ride it next year next to the CB450 K0
