Not to be outdone by all you 'intrepid bikers'.......this is moi today - at the perimeter fence of Blackpool Airport.....Blackpool Tower is in the distance behind the bike. Fantastic day for a ride and as sleet and rain are forecast for the rest of the week, I thought I'd get out while I can.

Got this CB1300S in November as I really missed having a big bike - with big fat tyres - so the CB600F got chucked in PX from Castle Motorcycles in Castleford......brilliant people and great to deal with. Happy to recommend them.

Had two of these CB1300's before, an 04 and an 06 both from new. Still a brilliant bike 16 years and 17K later, and I'm proper pleased with this well looked after 08 example. Happy as a pig in the proverbial ! Roll on summer !
Now: 2008 CB1300S, CB750K4, 1970 Bonneville. Various other 1960's 650 Triumph T120's/ TR6's/ TR6C's (all in bits...many, many bits unfortunately). Previous: 2007 CB600FA, 1976 CB500 Four. BMW F800ST. GS750E. ZZR1100. CB1300 (2). ZXR1200S. VFR800. CB750 Nighthawk. CX500. XS500 Yam. Suzuki GT500. BSA A10. Various Lambrettas. Zundapp Bella (honest).

Not familiar with that model Skoti! 75cc. Take it the Scottish Borders sticker on the leg shield was not standard.🤣

 Johnny,
It's an 1981 NF75 made in Belgium.
Not one of Mr Honda's finest models IMHO.

Looks like some sort of Cub variation? I have a few C90’s and they reach an eye watering 45mph on a good day! 😂

Probably not in the same league as a Cub.
 It's a two stroke twist and go thing with a retail price higher than a proper four stroke C70 in it's day, which maybe explains why you don't see many about.

Anyhow I got it for nowt and saved it from the skip.

Hell! That’s definitely too good for the skip! Looks in good condition! Maybe you’ve done some work on it?

It had been very used and abused when I first recovered it back to my motorcycle rescue centre (shed).

Sunny chilly monday at the Oosterschelde in the Netherlands. Needed to try the new front fork pipes and seals.

Had to google to see exactly where you are. 😜 A little jealous of you getting out for a blast, just too much salty brine on the roads here yet.

Out on the bike today, damp in places, very enjoyable

Running like an electric motor, smooth as silk

What mileage has that little beastie done now John?
One day I'll have the time to restore it, not just talk and dream....
