    I have found that the thing I love best about this bike so far is a small thing really. When the RPM's are up and I am accelerating to hwy speeds, the engine makes this little whine, mechanical sounding, almost like a turbo spooling up. To me it is among the most satisfying sounds in the world. I am fast falling in love with inline 4's

    But they are very wide in the hips so prone to drag hard parts in tight or bumpy corners, be careful of that once you start riding it more aggressive.

    I do not intend to ever get that aggressive on this bike. Mostly because I do not want to risk damaging it, it's to damn pretty lol.

    I did go for a ride this weekend and found out that the bike is still capable of hitting it's limits set forth by Honda from when it rolled off the factory line. Possibly more, but I did not test it that far.

    Remember riding pillion on one of the first CB750's, in almost every corner I had to lift my foot off the inside passenger peg, because I knew it was going to hit the ground and flip up anyway.
    My CB350-4 was nicknamed sparky :| All early Honda I-4's are prone to drag hard parts in the corners as I recall. ymmv. We always rode fairly aggressive.

    So this guy at the UPS depot across the street from my work got a new bike this weekend. He is usually on a BMW GS650 (I think) but scored this beaut from his brother in law and parked behind me.

    That's what I thought, guy said its a CB400N. Still a nice bike no matter what it is. Half tempted to see if he wants to let me buy it for my wife.

    CB400N would be a super dream. I think we only got them in the US for 1 or 2 (79-80) years before the cb450T took over (81-82). It could also be a canadian import, though it looks like it has the 1979 graphics that mimic the US cb750F 1979 graphics.
