Greetings. Regular coming out of hibernation here. Had an SCR from a'way back. Traded it in for a Honda CB 1100. I have seen the light my bruthas. I have just now acquired another SCR with a little under 4,000 miles. They are truly bad assed machines. I am really happy to own one once again. And really, almost above all, I missed being a part of this forum. I missed the technical stuff, the humor, and the comeraderie of all of the people here and this sight. I am looking forward to it once again. And Eddie, you too may begin to feel compelled to get another SCR one more time and personalize it to your own specs and standards again, Lol !

Ha - don’t worry about @Schu , he’s a little over dramatic at times. I think he’s called ‘time of death’ about 3 times on this forum now.....glad he’s not my surgeon!!

Tell us the story @Big-X then!! No, no - let me guess......the in-line 4 CB1100 was a very competent, well put together and finished bike, beautiful to look at, but just lacked a little summat........it could maybe be termed bland, right??

Yes Ben, right on. I used to ride it when I wanted to catch up on my sleep or take a nap. Don't get me wrong. It was a very beautifully engineered piece of machinery, however, it just wasn't all that much fun. Everything was virtually perfect!

LOL - had the same with both of my recent(ish) in-line 4s (Honda CB1300 and Yam XJR1300) - very capable, but lacking a little, I don’t know..... ”je ne sais quoi”

Is that now two former owners who have re-purchased an SCR.....?? Maybe we’re not all as insane as the rest of the biking community make us out to be then?!
