Say hello to David at Maidstone Honda!

Next up in our Maidstone Honda "Get to know the Team" series is David, our very experienced Aftersales Advisor. Scroll down to find out more about David and how he got into riding!

The Honda CBR600RR

What motorcycle do you currently ride?

"I currently ride a very awesome CBR600RR and I love it!"


What made you purchase the bike and what do you think of it?

"I absolutely love this bike, from the way it rides to its aggressive sporty performance. It's more of a toy than anything else and to be honest, I wouldn't use it as a commuter - however boy you can play with it! I have toured on the bike and also done track days and it handles quite well. The unknown versatility of it is brilliant and it brings me back to the days of my youth every time I ride it. What a bike!

I had a GSX600 before this and compared to that, this bike is a lot more modern and more reliable. It handles and performs differently - it's got a more confidence inspiring feel in the corners which you can really rock on A & B roads and overtaking is cinch. What's not to like... it turns heads even after all this time and looks younger than it truly is."


What modifications have you made to the bike?

"I added a Two Brothers exhaust system which I personally think gives it bundles more character - you can hear every note from the engine. The bike overall is pretty standard other than that. I did add a tail tidy and indicators just to give it a bit more of a neat look. Other than those upgrades I've also got a RAM mount which comes in handy every time I ride."

What got you into riding motorcycles?

"My friend passed his motorcycle test and went out to buy a Yamaha R6. After that I got jealous and never looked back - I went out and got my licence and swiftly jumped onto sports bikes - but like I mentioned before, they were always a toy to play with, never my only means of transport - just a bit of fun. However my touring ambitions were always high and it wasn't long 'till I went to Wales for a road trip."


What's your favourite place to ride?

"My favourite place to ride is the roads around Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons as they're just breathtaking from all angles. I did a road trip over at Snowdonia not long ago and it is, as always, one of the best rides I ever go on. Although I must admit, due to the length of the trip my bum did go quite numb..."

What advice do you have for newer riders?

"Before you set off into riding, make sure you understand the costs of it all put together. I think people still look at motorcycles as cheaper but in the grand scheme of things, they probably work out around the same as cars - especially if you purchase all the right gear. I would say though, it's crucial to buy the appropriate ride wear, I hate seeing people riding in t-shirts and no gloves etc.

Enjoy yourself but ride sensibly!"

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
