    How slow is a CB350?

    I recently made a post about a CB200, which you guys promptly talked me out of. I'm not looking to set the world on fire, but I would like to be able to at least keep up with traffic. Having never owned a bike in my life, I'm pretty green when it comes to engine sizes.

    In my last post about a 200, someone asked if I had tools.
    I do in fact live in a 40x60 metal building, and do all my own work on my street car ('79 malibu). I know my way around a wrench, but not a single thing about motorcycles.

    Do I mainly need to stick with 4 cylinders, or will 2 popper be decent?
    That being said.. opinions on this CB350? It's right up the road from me.

    CB350? About as fast as a Prius. Get something more modern to learn how to ride on.

    Dude, why the interest in small bikes? You are wasting your time.

    Plenty of twins and singles will be highway safe so you aren't married to four cylinders. However you are wasting everyone's time looking for anything under 450ccs.

    A SOHC 750 or 550 will do 75mph all day long. So will a sportster, an sr500, xs650 etc....

    I've seen and ridden some pretty decently fast cb350's but as a man once said; you cannot beat cubic inches. For the price of a decent cb350 - you can find and equally decent larger displayed motorcycle. Now what you end up buying depends on your personal taste and what's available in your local market.

    That bike is not worth anything near what he is asking, from what I can see it needs tires, he said it needs a battery, the new carbs aren't tuned right and will take you a long time to get them sorted with that exhaust set up. The biggest thing is it doesn't have a title, he says he has it but not in his name. That only takes a few moments at the DMV to switch over so something is going on there. Not sure what he means by not inspected, if it needs to be than the lack of turn signals and fenders might not fly. Its basically a parts bike.
