I missed all this growing up because I was just too young, but getting into bikes I have had a chance to research all of it and have fallen in love with this era of racing.
So much so that this was my daily driver for about four years here in LA.....
I sold it last year to the head of product development for Honda North America.... the guy nearly pooped himself when he saw it in person. He was from Japan and apparently they dont have 1100's over there.
Its still the nicest 1100F I have ever seen. I do miss it, but it had a horrible clutch..... it really was the Achilles heel of the bike. Very quick, and very fun to ride.
keep the pics and stories coming!!
