    Pre-faded? Are you referring to slight green tinge they have?

    Dunno, but you can go to rakuten.com with the part numbers and find most stuff. A vendor there has the two rear carrier kits and the top box.

    Top box:

    Generic attachment kit:

    Specific attachment kit for Honda top box (both attachment kits are necessary, AFAIK):
    http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/hatoya/item/10056239/

    And, the rear carrier, for about $100 less than U.S., but probably more when you consider shipping (no idea what shipping would be):

    +1 Thanks
    Those of us still waiting on ABS must live vicariously through others. I am, however, still waiting for you early birds to get the pannier situation sorted out before my bike arrives.:D

    Nice report and pictures.

    I've found Honda to be really skimpy with their Gvwr s. I also have an St 1300 and I'm not particularly big at 5'7 180 and my wife is about the same, yet when we ride two up we are dangerously close to being overloaded. I've heard the same thing from Goldwing riders.

    Sorry about this pathetic post but it's been a long week trying to get the bike back home. It came in about a week ago but the dealer said the title or certificate of origin comes in the mail, not with the bike. I checked back every day and it was not in until today. I think they just wanted to keep it on the stand right as you walk in the door. Insurance companies suck, I know, I work for one. I tried to get my policy set up with my own company so that the premium could be taken out of my check in small amounts. So I went through the whole process and come to find out they wanted to charge me $1600.00 for the year. After I canceled this I called Floe and got it for $518.00 but then I had to run around and get the registration form stamped (driving and hour) and then off the registry of motor vehicles. After waiting 1 hour I got to the window and they only accept cash or check. I should have seen the very small print on the wall before I waited an hour so that's my fault but still aggravating to the max. I got to the dealer tonight and rode it home with my snowmobile helmet, gardening gloves and dressy leather coat. :rofl

    It's been a long time since I've ridden on the street but I am no stranger to motorcycles. I'm 47 yrs old, 6'1", 215 and 33" inseam. (used to be 6'2" and 180) but apparently I'm getting old. I think I will look into the taller seat but it is not a must. I felt very comfortable on my short ride home. I also like the pegs back a little. If they were right under my knee it would be too small for me. All my worrying about the height were unfounded.

    Take this noob report for what it is .......a guy who got back into street riding just because of this bike.

    We use State Farm for everything. When I called up my agent's office, the bike was not in their system so they worked up a policy for me after looking over the bike on Honda's website. I'm paying $305/yr. with a $100/$250 comp/coll deductible which I thought was a great price.

    Really, 35 bikes over 43 years and never rubbed through my chrome. Works great on ocean fishing lures too, never rubbed through them either. What ever works for you I guess.

    Mine will be delivered tomorrow. Looks exactly like AZBob's! No ride report yet, of course, but is it ever put together nicely!

    Bob,

    That side-by-side is AWESOME! I didn't really get the color choice, but that really makes sense. And for you, in your garage, it's perfect.

    I've been out riding mine..... and a couple friends of mine have sorta been drooling over it.

    So, I've been letting them ride it.

    Mind you, all of these folks are 40+ years old. They're all suitably impressed. Many expected it to be closer to an old CB750, and appear to be pleasantly surprised.

    No, nothing is perfect, but I think that Mother Honda did a nice job resurrecting a vintage bike, especially considering the price point.

    It's not a copy of a cb750. It looks far better than that.

    It has it's own style. Like a 21st Century rendition, which it is.

    After owning a couple NightHawk 750's and looking at the Cb1100's oil filter clearance... the new CB has it in spades as far as getting to it easily. An under appreciated nicety to having a single sided stock pipe. :raabia

    [​IMG]
    It's almost like the pipes are all squished over to one side for a reason. :rolleyes
    [​IMG]

    Seriously though... Gobs of room. Maybe it was just me but I remember fondly when taking the oil filter off the NightHawks there was only one right way to fish it out and around and when your working quickly with a hot engine and pipes... one wrong turn through the front four and there would be oil everywhere and a lot of cursing and even bits of singed skin. Oh how I'll miss that. :poser

    And finally a pic of the sweet sweet CB1100 Hondaline rack.

    Beautiful pics :wink:

    I too had a 750 Nighthawk and yea a pain to fish the filter out. I always warmed mine up and then let it it for 1/2 hour before changing the oil. Oil was still warm enough to drain, but pipes had cooled. Off enough not o singe your arm
