    Something led me to that video a while back, but your post is appreciated. Watching it again, I pretty much made up my mind that I had to have an 1100 before I'm too old to swing a leg over. Thanks. Think I will need to find some reflective windows to ride past, just to watch myself ride by....tp dd50

    Never flown a plane, but that biplane looked like a blast to pilot around the clear blue skies. tp

    Nice video review from Motorcycle Trader of OZ. Not quite the same bike available here, but close enough. We are suppose to get a taller seat and bars, and available ABS, at least that's what I read on an MCN review from the UK. tp

    While we're on a bit of a video roll... This is certainly not the best video out there, but perhaps the best audio captured of the CB1100 so far:

    I wonder if the delay between shots was because they had to refuel..:wink:

    When it is accelerating away from the camera it sounds very much like a CB 750 of old with stock pipes.

    My first bike was a 64 Black n White 50cc version. Think I paid $75 for it in '70. Top speed was 45mph. Fun around town, but freeways were no-no's. Really don't need 100hp around town, but it's fun to have....

    $1700 in today's dollars. And $2K is not coincidentally where most of the 50cc scooters are around these days. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Good point Mark. My first summer job (early 70's) was working in a Pepsi bottling plant slinging empty wooden 24 bottle crates onto the washing line conveyor for $1.65 / hour. I thought I was rich!

    You were rich. My first real job ( not delivering newspapers, cutting grass, or shoveling snow) was as a bus boy at a local restaurant .... in 1965, I made $ 1.00 an hour and bought my first new motorcycle with the earnings, a Harley badged Aermacchi M 50. Woo hoo freedom baby! I could fill the tank for 50 cents and ride for days.

    Same here. I think my first job was for minimum wage which was $1.25/hr. I probably had more pocket money with this job than any job since. That job did fund the lion's share of a new turquoise-blue 1970 $765 CB350. I've owned 50+ bikes since, but none seemed as cool as that bike when I bought it.

    sat on this bike at the motorcycle show in chicago last week, good looking bike except the ugly exhaust manufactures are using now a days. first impression was seat the seat seemed to high (I'm 6'0 and 185lbs) the bars and controls seemed to be at perfect locations but my knees seemed very high on the tank. I see this being a fun bike around town or small 1-up trips but feel the wife would complain with in an hour.

    looking forward to actual owner reviews in the up coming months.

    Makes it more artsy fartsy and mysterious...Or maybe the only place to position the shot w/o getting run over by the CB...

    I wasn't being serious, just a hint of sarcasm, but I do believe the vidiographer was attempting the artsy fartsy. Kinda like spy shots...down low, through the bushes. Maybe they hired a PI to do the shoot... tp
