My first bike was a Honda CB 350 '71. That was fun to ride, but it was definitely a daily headache to maintain. So I go a more 'modern' bike- an '89 Honda CB-1 400F. This bike was perfect for a novice like me- especially if you find one that is in awesome condition. They are hard to find since Honda doesn't make them anymore- so I always look for fun if someone is selling one since they are so rare- so I wanted to share my discovery- someone posted an ad on Craig's Lisa San Francisco for a '89 Honda CB-1. I would take a look at it, they make great first bikes or for new riders.
