Is that Japan or Oz? Those are cool and look like giant lunch boxes popular in the 40's and 50's. Nice looking windshield, too...Tried to zoom in on the emblem but it pixilated when I did. tp

I don't know anything about luggage/panniers but would consider a good set of soft bags for a weekend trip. If anyone has a recommendation for a high-quality brand, I will definitely consider buying them.

Now today, I gave my dealer his weekly "Where's my 1100" phone call.
Nothing new to report, but I DID tell him about this thread which is approaching 130 pages of comments on the new CB.
He told me his dealership, a "Powersports Dealer' is a Level 5, which I'm assuming gets the new releases before the multi-brand dealers.
Can anyone expound on what a "Level 5" dealer is?

Jim

plungerhead,

I've used these bags on several of my bikes, from a V-Strom 1000 to a Harley Dyna. Require no supports, hold a lot and not expensive. They are claimed to be non waterproof, due to the zippers on top, but I've never gotten water into my bags...

That's just what I thought of - Herman Munster's giant-sized lunchbox.

Those are Hepco and Becker...they fit the X-Bow type rack. They only come in small sizes. If you need bigger ones, the Hepco and Becker Junior models look perfect on the CB1100....and the rack for the Juniors is ver attractive and "period correct looking". Gorgeous really.

I was more into The Addams Family, but the Barris Hot Rod that Herman drove was so cool for its time. Gomez was suave, but Herman was like Peter from Family Guy... Both were fun TV in the 60's. All gone, now...Just crappy reality shows.

Oh yeah, the CB1100 is a great motorcycle. Don't want the thread Nazis to think we have moved off subject on a motorcycle that no one has even owned yet... tp

Those are nice looking bags. Thanks for the info. tom

Now THESE bags are pretty sophisticated looking, and seem to fit the 1100 very nicely.
Thanks for the pic!!!

Yeah, that top trunk needs to go away and I'd be happy as a clam with that look.

Here is a little video of a 0-60 for you hot rodders that I stumbled across.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4It90JnHh5k

Looks like the guy short shifted it for some reason and his timer is optimistic but its quick enough for me. Looks like high 4 seconds to me. Quick enough for this old man.

I think it will be substantially quicker than high 4 seconds when tested by someone who's not short-shifting. Cool vid though, thanks.
