OK, all good points to consider.
I just received the 2 piston calipers, 81/82 rotors and the have ss braided lines for front and back.
I'm also changing all the pistons, seals and rubber. Semi-sintered EBC pads.
Some people go for inverted forks and Brembo's but that looks too expensive.
The CBX is all about that 6 cyl motor, that's should always be the focal point when people look at your magnificent motorcycle.

I asked around before I chose sintered pads.

Opinions seemed to be that sintered are better than semi-sintered but they do wear faster. I wasn't concerned with the minor price difference and pad wear but stopping/ staying alive was a concern. I have sintered on both my rides and have no issues. Don't take my word for it but do ask around before you choose.

The forks/handling would be transformed with Racetech Emulators installed, it's about the cheapest conversion out there. If the bike is new to you you may want to check inside first to see if a PO hasn't already put them in.

OK, let's steer this back to photos. Ideally the best photos of your CBX. If you can provide a bit of a story and/or some info about photo gear and settings, that would be great.

Here is an over-processed photo of me and my wife riding our bikes on the Gardiner in Toronto. A good friend of mine is an avid semi-pro photographer, and I enlisted him and another close friend who loves driving his GTI (and his wife who loves babysitting my son) to try to get some early-morning shots of the two of us riding together in Toronto before our second baby was born. We got incredibly lucky and had some really nice riding weather despite it being late October or early November on the only day where it worked for all of us to coordinate our schedules.

We got a kind of a late start, but once we were out and about it ended up being a super fun and positive experience for all involved. My friend the photographer was really experimenting with different gear and styles at that time, trying to sort out a signature style for himself. He has said that he'd like to have another go - ideally with some kind of rig that would give more freedom of movement and angle. Once my bike is back on the road we'll work out another plan.

That's a nice setting, and I just read through your post history and learned about your 0-mile find. It makes me really happy to see it out and about in the world!

For some reason it won't fit horizontally on the page. Maybe someone could fix that?
