Oh, Man. Now that these bikes are showing up, the wait is starting to kill me.

I want mine.

Link is to a online Japanese Moto Parts Vendor. I'm sure some of the items listed will become available in the states.

Give folks an idea whats to come for customization. Which I think will be key for longevity of this bike.

Indeed! I've been checking out that site. They have some pretty nice accessories although quite expensive, and that's w/o shipping costs to the US!
I want that rear rack, but I want it to have a small backrest that is easily removable for the Princess.

I really like those huge bolts that go through the head into the bottom end. Thats a cool detail....

Ive always thought that Honda had some of the prettiest engines and this one does not disapoint

I agree, ep. I just noticed the other day that the oil pipes in the front of the engine are chrome! Much better looking, and much easier to keep clean than the rubber lines used on the 80s engines.

I wont be getting a CB anytime soon but I thought what the heck may as well drop by and see if my dealer has one. Cant hurt to kick some tires right? Pulled in and the doors were locked and nobody was there. They went out of business just recently I found out. It was a Honda/Kawasaki dealer and mostly catered from what I could tell to 4 wheelers and such. The dealer was there for 25 years and I guess the crappy economy didnt help any. Just a shame.

Nearest dealer is 50 miles away now.

What dealer are you getting yours from? I got mine from Motorsports Intl and they say it supposed to be shipped tomorrow. The wait is killing me too.

I am not in any place to buy one of these, but I really can't wait to see one in person. I went to the local dealer (Mission Motorsports in Irvine, CA) and the sales guy said he expects them anytime this week, along with the new 500's. And he also said they will most likely set one up for demo rides. I will be checking back daily...and bringing my gear with me.

Sure is. Do you know what happened? They have sent all of their customers to Station Park Honda in Louisville. I called up there and they dont have a CB and said they had taken over all of the inventory ect.. That place has been there since I was a kid. It was called Hardin Kawasaki way back when.
