I've read(skimmed) through about 180 pages of this thread so far.

I have VIN#0923.
I'm 6'4"-5", 36" inseam. I'm definitely going to be getting a taller seat when one comes available for a reasonable price in the US if I haven't just found someone to do a custom one for me before then.

Other than that I love mine. Can't really say anything that others haven't already said. Smooth ride, greats looks, etc...

Thanks, just the thing I wanted to hear. I haven't been able to see and sit on one yet so this is great news! (6'3" 34-36 inseam). Keep us updated about your search for a taller seat. Personally I like the retro Honda ones that are the same thickness front to back.

I had a few minutes to kill yesterday so I stopped by the dealer to sit/drool on the CB since I had not see one since the show in Jan. My initial impressions were confirmed. The paint appears an inch thick, the welds on the frame are gorgeous, the seating position is perfection for me (5'7"/28" inseam). The dealer informed me that that have had a ton of 40 to 55 year old foot traffic in to see the bike. The have now sold 5 in Richmond.
One very lucky guy dropped off his old bike for a service. While at the dealership, he commented to his wife how much he loved that new CB. The next day she went back and bought it for his birthday party tonight.

Yep, seems the CB1100 is a middle-age sausage magnet.

I sent this to my Wife, her response was, "see if she has a sister." Not the response I was looking for, hehe.

Here are some photos of the Ventura Bike-Pack System for the '13 CB1100, my amigo Scotty said it only took ten minutes to install and that it is a quality product.
The CB is mine, I haven't seen yet but will be flying up in a few days and hitting the road, looking forward to the ride.

Looking good. Strap a small pillow to the front and have a great back rest. Did something similar on a Harley and it made for a great and more comfortable trip.
