0022, 6' 195. 32 inch inseam and the bike is very comfortable.
0022?!?! That's a very low VIN#. We have a new leader!

Speed limit here is 65 although they are raising it to 70 this summer. It's 70 just south of us in Kentucky. Believe it or not when you 're riding, that 5 mph diff is a bigger deal than you'd think it would be. It feels like your flying when you run the speed limit in KY.
Mine was the last of the rigid mounts. Did everything under the sun to curb the vibration. Never did fix it but improved it some. Everyone of them is different from what I understood. Mine smoothed out just above 70 up to 75 and that is where I rode it. For those of you who never rode a rigid mount sportster you have not missed much. Mirrors are totally useless. Or, at least mine were.

Some have reported a very slight buzz on the CB11 but from my perspective I bet its nothing compared to what I have been accustomed to. From the reports the engine and gear box seem like real jewels.

That's a good angle shot. Really captures the bike's lines well.

Was at my local Honda dealer today, they have 2 CB1100's.





Sorry for such a small pic. Anyways, really nice bike.

Eastbound, that looks like an even better angle of the bike. Wish that photo was bigger!

I was just on the Honda Canada website and was checking out what accessories are available up there. It looks like those of you who want chrome sidecovers could get them out of Canada. Look for 'Side Cover Kit':

I suspect Honda will make more of the accessories available in the U.S. soon, however.

White Japan custom kit for the new CB1100

And I thought the new CB1100 was already retro!

I can see that working for some people, but for me it ruins the nicely integrated lines of the stock bike. The junction of the side cover, seat and tank looks somewhat askew and a little sloppy compared to stock IMO. Also notice how the front edge of the sidecover overlaps part of the frame. I also think that tank is just too bulbous, and not as sharp as the stock tank. Not to mention the cast wheels contrast badly with the vintage looking bodywork. I guess I'm kind of fussy about the 'finished' look of a bike and I think this deviates from stock in entirely the wrong way. YMMV.

You know if they'd have made it just like that, I would have been happy. i'm happy with it the way it is too. It works either way for. Me.

Probably could be said of the original CB750 styling for that matter!
I was never a big fan of it until the later "F" bodywork came out, and greatly improved again in 79 with the twin cam models....IMHO.

To bulbous I should've added that that tank's size is out of proportion to the rest of the bike. If you look at an original CB750 (non-F) the tank is much more proportional to the rest of the bike. OTOH, if anyone gives their bike this treatment, I certainly won't criticize them for it. Just doesn't suit me is all.
