    Yes he would. Not sure if he could fold himself onto one of these.

    That was seriously funny JimJim :wink:

    I 'll let you take a ride on it next time we meet up, course that means I'll have to ride along on your Triumph 800.... Yea baby.

    Just a heads up.. This bike really perplexed my insurance guy. the CB 1100 is so new it isnt on the official list of Honda motorcycles, so the ins guy had to figure what to charge me by year, displacement and suggested retail price. Anyhow my full coverage ins is going to cost me $282 and change a year.

    Nice CA200. I can barely see but looks like you got a rack put on the back also. Can you post another picture of that. Also, what kind of tires do the new CB's come with?

    Height and Inseam and how it fits you
    Initial impressions

    I really like my new Mich. Road Pilot III's on my CBR250 but they don't make that size for the cb1100. However, I have heard great things about Pirelli Sport Deamons and it appears that they do make those in the correct size.

    Mine also came with Dunlop D205s ,
    I am sure that Metezler or some of the better tires will be made to fit
    because this bike is selling well.
    I know a little about tires since we used to sell a lot before I closed my
    store last year. I mounted 1000 tires myself last year. It was a good year.
    The rack is a Honda line rack and I will post more pic. later. I also got the
    Honda line heated grips and they work well.
    I am 5'9" with a with a 29" inseam and I can flat foot it on the bike.
    My vin # is 464
    I will report more when it gets warmer here -- it was only in the low 30s today.

    O913 is mine.
    Its been a long wait and I am thankful this thread has been alive during it!

    I'm 5'10" / 30" Inseam / 210 lbs / 50 YO.
    I have been riding since I was about 7, dirt and street.

    Due to weather and the holiday weekend I only managed 68 miles so far.
    Some 75 mph interstate, some two lane blacktop even some gravel! Standing up on the pegs looking over the bars I can see myself and my big stupid grin in the front fender! :evil
    I ditto much of what has been reported by others regarding the Gearbox, Torque delivery, Fueling, Brakes all excellent, absolutely no complaints! :D
    This Bike fits me perfectly! It is exactly what I imagined it would be.
    It is what was advertised. It lives up to carrying the Honda heritage in the CB line.
    My dealer Station Park Honda in Louisville Ky. could not have been a more pleasing expierience if you like no pressure, laid back good ole boy treatment and a really fair OTD price.

    One thing is for sure the Tank Paint is PERFECT and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna cry if / when I scratch it so please let us all know how the Clear Bra works out.

    I will have some pics soon but really dont know how to post them without a smug mug account and I dont think I want to pay for that.
    May change my mind tho.

    Wow! man that is awesome, we get so riped off here in Manitoba. pretty sure this same bike would cost me around $1400 a yr to insure here. and i only see about 6 months of riding time in a good year to boot!

    FYI, I'm paying $558.00 a year in Houston, TX for full coverage with a $500.00 deductible with Gieco.

    My VIN is 0930. I'm 5'8" 160lbs with a 30-31 inseam and can flat foot it also. Love the bike.

    Nice. I think it's safe to put the snowblower away now. :-). If you are who I think you are, you mounted one of those tires for me.

    It will be interesting to see what tire choices will be out there. Not many other bikes take 18" tires any more do they?

    Congrats Justarida!! I posted before that I knew that your bike was here. I know its been cold in Ky. Thanks for your thoughts on Station Park Honda. Much appreciated. The weather in Ky is going to clear up this week I think so we all expect a report from you. :evil

    How is the CB11 at 75 mph and what is the rpm. I ride a lot of interstates and parkways. Does it feel strained? My old Sportster felt like at 75 you were going 115 no joke. I know its not a Gold wing but just curious.

    Man, I am so jealous of all of you with new CB's .. Anybody have a go pro that can make a video? Thank all of you for your ride reports so far. I showed my old HD biker buddy a pic of the CB and he said is that a HOnda 750? Even he was impressed.

    Get them out there and ride them guys and stay safe!!!
