    Yes that is indeed... One part of me tells me not to go as I will end up getting it.... And I will have to let go of my T700Sm. 20210510143852_IMG_2376.jpg

    Pretty much. I'd ridden 883 and 1200 rigid mount Sportsters before but the Lightning was still shaky by comparison. Truthfully the XB Lightnings are the ones I have always been more intrigued with, but now I hesitate to ever get on one as I don't want to experience that level of disappointment again lol

    Yeah, I have a 2017 CB1100EX, so somewhere between those two. It's a real sweetheart, and very glad I bought it when available.

    The RS is the bike Honda should have brought in to the US.
    American Honda - "Boy, that CB1100 didn't sell like we thought it would, and it's taking forever to move all those still sitting on the sales floor. Should we bring the RS to the US ? No, let's bring in more of almost the same thing that didn't sell well before !"

    Oh yeah and remember that Deluxe with ABS and mag wheels that we sold out of. Let’s discontinue that and add some wire wheels.

    That RS is a beauty. How could they not have brought that to the US? Makes no sense to me. Knowing it was out there made me not want the EX. I’m sure it is a good bike, but it isn’t what I wanted and felt like I was settling. Now I sound like a 6 year old. Thanks Honda!

    Honda sold the CB1100RS in Canada in very limited numbers I have only seen one in the flesh and that was at the annual bike show Honda had a CB1100RS and a new CB1000R on display my friend fell in love with the CB1000R I thought he was crazy after seeing the two side by side the CB1100RS checked all the boxes for me. Since the RS's sold out and finding a used one for sale was not happening I had to settle for a new 2020 Triumph Speed Twin, in black of course.

    If Guzzi makes a new Milano or Rough with the 850 motor I’m down to pay full price!

    I said previously that I wanted the new-gen 2022 Triumph Bobber. After seeing the Cordovan Red version in person yesterday, I now super-want it.

    Decided that this year is not the time to buy, even though I want. Pent up COVID demand has turned bikes into a sellers market, and I'm not going to swim in that pool.

    Honda has always done stupid shit like that.
    They should have brought in the 1982 CB1100R.

    I have a Capo, done nearly 10k on it. I find it:
    1) very heavy 260kgs
    2) heavy on gas, and some oil too
    3) cornering is indeed funny, little feedback from the front and tends to wallow.
    But.....
    Good power in sports mode,
    Very comfortable
    And easy to eat transport distances, not a canyon carver.

    I didn't know about the 110 Screamin Eagle Fat Boy S until recently. It's too late, I've bought nearly all the upgrades for the 2018 114 Fat boy.

    Softail Slim S, Fatboy S, and Dyna Low Rider S were all offered the last year or two of those platforms with Screaming Eagle 110's and cruise control. They're all holding their value too from what I've seen. The HD delaership next to me has a Low Rider S that they want just as much for as the new Softail Low Rider S. Admittedly, I'd still get the Dyna because I like them and it is a one-off model.

    I thought the 110's had a bad heat issues on the rear cylinder.

    I so very much love the Slim, but would choose the new softail design for the 50 pound (or however much it was) weight loss and the new M8 engine. But.....a Slim S on the previous generation would be uber-cool. They need a new Slim S. Probably come out with one at some point....why wouldn't they?
