Planning on purchasing the CB1100, not in the initial rush in March/April, but the following winter. Spent a lot of time with it today at the San Mateo, California bike show. It represents everything I want in a motorcycle. The red paint is even darker and more beautiful than I expected based on Internet photos. Seating position seems perfect based on multiple sits, but no ride. Demo rides by Harley, Yamaha, and Can-Am only.
