I like the looks of the F6B. Won't buy one, because I don't want a 900 pound bike, but kudos to Honda for doing it. Hopefully they pick up some HD touring sales with it.

I really like the look of the CB1100. Though I'm probably the only one on the planet who wishes the fenders were _not_ chrome. Still, I'm tempted. Could be what I wanted the Bonnie to be.

The 500s look good. I'm very curious about engine vibration. Parallel twins seem prone to vibration issues. On the other hand, Honda are obviously known for their smooth engines.

I like the looks of the F6B also, but won't buy one for the same reason.

Chrome or painted fenders: either are fine with me as long as the they look good. There are some fairly ugly, stubby fenders out there.

Parallel twins can be smooth. It depends on execution. I thought the Bonneville I test rode was smooth. The GS500 I used to own was buzzy. The XS650 I used to own vibrated quite a bit, but I can't say it really bothered me.

Modern parallel twins with counter-balancers can be as smooth as any twin.
