You need a wife like mine. She buys more bikes than I do and I tend to be content with what I'm riding but she often says "you need a new bike"

Yeah I know, I'm blessed.

Man- I really wanted the CB1100.

My wife was simply too against the extra $3.3K over the Bonneville, for a third bike. I have no regrets with the Bonneville, and enjoy the crap out of it, but I appericate what Honda has done with the CB1100.

Someone in my general area has one, and everytime I see it buzzing around....I simply just stare at it like a creepy-stalker.

I have 3000 miles on my CB. I have only checked fuel mpg 3 times. It's always between 46 and 50 mpg. 3.8 gal tank so you do the math!

To quote the press packet: "You can expect the nineT to be priced below an R1200 R Classic" - which is a hair over 15k as I recall.

Those red side covers just add so much to the Cb and makes it even more beautiful imo. Great looking bike you have. Have you had any issues with your Honda or does it just not suit your fancy since I see you want to trade for the new BMW?

0 issues - I have been waiting for this bike from BMW for a long time, thinking they were not going to bring it out. Well, they are and I am gonna replace my 2nd R75/5 and the CB1100 with it and try to get my garage a little less crowded. I am a BMW guy first, tho this Honda with the Staintune exhaust makes one of the sweetest sounds in motorcycling.

I've owned 2 CB750 K's and still have an 82 CB900F,this bike kinda slots right in between them and seems like a logical upgrade.I just don't know how logical I'm feeling.I keep saying I'm going to get something new every year,this might be it.

Wow! That looks great. Love the color matched bikini fairing and the candybar seat. Where did you get the fairing?
