Default Greetings from Norway

Hi :-)
Got myself an 2007 599 a couple of weeks ago, or a CB600F Hornet as they are called here in Europe. Anyway it's a golden wasp - color pearl amber yellow.

It has 72000 km on it's back - 44.7K miles.

A bad rear wheel bearing and a dirty (!) radiator took the price down, but is fixed now. Flushed and changed coolant at the same time.

Yesterday I removed the Scottoiler (washed the chain at the same time) and painted the cowl/fairings/cover under the seat into dark grey metallic instead of the beige stock color. And now I have waxed the rest of the fender with Turtle Black Shine, in a try to renew the faded black/grey plastic.

Next on the list is a front fender extender to protect my radiator.

About me, 38 years old, got driver's licence 10 years ago, starting with a Suzuki Boulevard S40, then a Harley Sportster, FXR, NightRod, then a Triumph Sprint, and now finally the Honda 599.

The Honda suits me perfect with my 138 lbs / 5.7'. The bike I've been most comfortable on since the Boulevard S40.

I live in Norway with the autumn and winter on it's way, but hoping for another month or two on the road before winter-storage.

Looking forward to learn and share maintance tips here on the forum :-)
