Yah, in the 50's, which is cold for an old guy.

The salesmen at dealership volunteered to chip in for a Honda jacket for me. Usually wear my Vanson around town, but it "shrunk" a little this winter.

I've had that shrinking jacket problem recently, too. The Honda had no problem with the BMW jacket? Bet if the situation was reversed the Beemer would not like the Honda jacket. That's just the way they roll, kinda picky devices. Nice looking bike you have there, sir...

Bet they will sell all they import, even being only one color. Keeps production costs down. Bet they will add some more colors for here if the sales are high enough. A metallic green would be nice...

Harley seems to be about the only company left that really gives the customer a wide variety of color choices.

Are you really have to do is paint the tank. And maybe the side covers if you want to. Or, how about a different color tank that has more capacity? Just switch them out when you need to.

Maybe it's just an effect of the pic. I also have to admit that I've not seen the bike in person yet, but it really looks diminutive on that picture.
Yes I'm 5' 11" and wearing riding boots, and a helmet, and doing my best captain Morgan pose. My foot is not on the back rest and the bike is behind me. Weird pic because I was goofing off I guess.

Must have something to do with where you stand by the bike in photos. Ohmigod! That bike looks huge!

The CB11 makes me glad I'm under 6' -- for a change.

How does the CB compare to the Super Tenere, being a twin with a 33" seat height? I considered an ST, but got a Tiger 1050 instead. Big mistake ergo wise...
