Nope. Not yet.

I had them delay delivery until this tuesday. I was called away on another matter this weekend.

BTW, I had them save the shipping crate, cover, literature, etc.

Got to see one of these at Sloan's down in Murfreesboro yesterday. Wow! Such fit and finish, and so pleasing to look at, at least to my eye. Congrats to all you new owners and way to go, Honda!

You're quite welcome.
Here are the video links if anyone else wants to see an interesting link to a dedicated Honda dealer. G N Gonzales Honda in Baton Rouge since the '30s. Mr. George Gonzales Jr. past away in 2011. Former distributor for entire southeast and central U.S. - Worlds largest seller.

I stopped by the large Honda Dealer (former southeast & middle third of U.S. - distributor) "G N GONZALES" here in Baton Rouge last week. They still have two non-abs bikes (#681 and #940) on the showroom floor. They told me they had a lot of lookers, even passing through from out of town, but no takers. They're holding tight on MSRP price even after a month....

Yeah. I thought so. Don't wanna derail this thread, but if interested, you can read more about it over in the "Go Sportsters" thread.

Alas, like the CB1300, black CB11s don't exist to me as a denizen of the US. Boo. Hiss. Thanks, though.

Went into a local dealer yesterday to test ride the CB500F; he said that they have sold 12 of the CB11, had two on the floor at 8899,00...

Ah...

I'm thinking of getting one of those Kriega tailpacks or backpacks for when I have to take stuff with me places.

I took a ride around Chicago Sunday, and it's a pretty sweet bike for city riding. I love how the gears all pull from such low revs, it kinda feels like riding a scooter around if you're taking it easy, but then you open up the throttle a bit and it's like being on a rocket ship

Some guy yelled at me at a light, wanted to know what year the bike was. He seemed surprised when I told him "2013".

And another random pic...

Who out there has wrung the neck of this bike versus another? I'm curious if this thing will out-run it's ancestors, brethren, or it's own shadow. These are motorcycles, aren't they....? ,BK
