    Yeah, clear coat. I tried this but you can't do it. Better to paint it VHT gloss black and bake it. Did that after I tried buffing. Matches the bike and has held up very well.

    And geez man, those must be some serious boots!

    It is a bike I was considering.
    The owner said it was from his boot, but I have no idea how he managed to do this.
    It is WAY in front of the peg and he was not that big a guy.

    I'd bet he dropped it at low speed.
    don't not buy the bike because of something small like that, My cb 1100 is a fabulous bike.

    I did get to ride it.
    It was nice and I enjoyed it a lot.

    Not a show stopper, but thoses scratches would play into the negotiations.

    I sold my 2007 BMW R1200RT last night. Looking for a new bike. Something smaller since most of my riding is around town. The CB1100 has always interested me. Is there any way to add small hard bags. I used to have some Givi E21's on my Versys and loved them. Is there a Givi rack? I just don't want to have to go back to a backpack.

    I don't think Givi has side bags for the CB1100, but Hepco-Becker does. They do make the bike pretty wide. I prefer a top case as a first bit of luggage since it carries more. Wish there were mounts to fit original-style Krausers in tight like on airheads. This is not my bike, but the mounts and bags look pretty decent on it.

    Cbolling, here's what Givi makes for the CB1100. I have a V40 and a V47. Funny you sold an '07 R1200RT for a CB. I sold an '07 R1200R for mine. I don't miss dodgy, aging BMW electronics one bit. thumbnail_IMG_8818.jpg

    I am the OP. I never bought one even though I lusted after it for quite some time. I guess the 18" wheels turned me off somehow. While I am a fan of the RS, the regular CB1100 has been back on my radar as of late. I could settle for a nice 6 speed with the 4 into 2 exhaust and the 17" wheels of the RS. But that would run up the tab quite high.

    Nice mods:

    I almost never want for a sixth gear on mine, in fifth at 70 the lump is spinning just under 4k.
    the Yoshi exhaust is a must have, saves fifteen pounds, looks and sounds much, MUCH better, and still is quiet, unless you really rail on the throttle.

    the oddball size wheels are a pita, but I love everything else about her.

    jazzman, is that a Yoshi slip on or full exhaust? I don’t even own a cb1100 yet but I’m curious!

    I'm also finally replacing the original tires tomorrow. (I know, I know, Waaaay too long) if you could see the age cracks you'd be mortified.
    Seriously, I should have replaced the rubber three years ago.:yikes
    The only thing that sucks about the bike is its oddball wheels, really limits tires, but the stock rims are just so beautiful, I can't bear to replace them.

    What really blows my mind is how low these things are selling for on the used market. I simply don't understand. I constantly get remarks on the road from ...everyone on how much they like the bike, which never happens on my FZ-09, yet over on the cb forum, there's multiples for sale with near zero miles for 3 and 4k.. Boggles my mind.

    That body kit is pretty sweet!

    Jazzmans, don't feel too bad. I ran the original tires on my '13 until a month ago when I got a nail in my rear. I had a set of Pirellis waiting, was just waiting for some time to swap 'em. A flat was a good enough reason.

    Man. If I could find a nice red one for $3k in Northern CA it would be in my garage tomorrow!
