34 years old here, and I love the CB1100. Although I do ride a 2000 Kawasaki W650. Anyone else think this bike needs a set of Napoleon bar end mirrors? The stock ones, although true to the originals, are a little too much for me. Same for the stock mirrors on my W, which will be replaced with Napoleons this afternoon.

The only bikes that currently appeal to me, besides my W650, are the CB1100, Bonneville, and MG V7. Recently sold a 2012 Triumph Tiger 800. I just don't get the 500 lb dirt bike thing.

Somebody hurry up and get sick of your CB and sell it to me cheap.

OK, has anyone found a CB1100 forum yet?

I wanna wait to see the modifications and the reviews for the aftermarket stuff.

A screwed down finned part for cooling an area that we usually don't see cooling for ? I find this interesting.. I wouldn't be surprised if one of the purposes that these parts serve is to guarantee that you're going to get a 'tinkling' sound every time the engine is shut off after being at operatiing temperature as it cools faster than the cylinder head and is tightly screwed down but still a separate part.

The only one I've found is a UK based forum with very little traffic. If I knew more about this kind of stuff I'd start one.

The www.cb1100.com domain is for sale. I've emailed the owner for a price. Should be interesting.

Back from my ride. Put 240 miles on it. No issues, nothing but fun enjoying the ride. Got around 45mpg but I was going thru gears and not cruising. Bike attracts people like a Ferrari, LOL! I'm 5'-8" and glad I'm not any taller. Here's a picture from a break I took. BTW - I have not heard the tinkling sound yet. Cheers!

I rode over to my brothers house today to show it to him and to go for a little ride with him on his Bonneville. I was going to ask him what he thought about removing the stickers on the tank, but as he was looking at the bike he says " look at those stupid f'n stickers" . Guess I didn't have to ask. Lol. Out came his heat gun, and carefully off came the stickers. It does look better without them

Anyhow we rode for about 4 hours, stopping for one of Cincinnatis best cheeseburgers at the Quatman Cafe in Norwood, and a stop at Cincinnatis newest Triumph dealership for a look at the bikes.

124 miles and the bike feels better with every mile.

I don't have a CB1100 but I'm a big Honda fan and ADV rider fan. I think you guys should just turn this into the CB1100 forum there's lots of interest here it seems

Where did you order these parts from ?
And, please post pictures.

I would also like to find an engine guard (crash bars).

Hey All.

I purchased cb1100forum.com (& cb1100forum.org) with the intent of setting up a forum dedicated to this bike. Purchase of a domain isn't that big of a deal, but the required software and associated hosting so far looks a bit more expensive than I was expecting. Unfortunately I won't be paying cash for my CB1100, so I don't know if I'll still be a able to afford the costs associated with a forum along with the monthly bike payments. Trust me, if I can make this work, you all will be the first to know. Seems like a real good core group (of old farts here so far I'm 50) and I'd certainly like to find a way to keep the conversation going beyond this thread.

All the best,
Guth

Test rode one today

Test rode one today (DFW Honda). VERY nice. The dealer has already sold the 5 they got in over the past 10 days or so. (The one I rode today had just gotten in.)

There were several people waiting in line to demo it. I think Honda has a hit on their hands. Hope they don't screw it up!

Good job; hard to believe that a bike this new is achieving cult status so quickly. I plan on having one soon, but whether I do or not, I would love to put together a meet and greet in the Ozarks if this isn't too premature; some of the best two lane twisties in the central US, lightly traveled, custom made for the 1100.
