Damn that makes me miss my silver wing 500. I could take it 2up on a gravel road...

The NT700V should have been called Silverwing. It's a mid-size to small tourer that can go coast to coast with no problems or be used as a commuter. Of course I'm one of about 2500 people in the entire country who have one and know about them.

I just don't get the point of the F6B. Put the regular windshield on it and put the trunk back, oh yeah, put the rest of the gw options back on too. I've been drooling over the cb1100f for a long time. Glad they are finally here. I wish someone would make a touring bike for short people.

I really like the cb1100 but dont think the 500 series is gonna work. Although i really like the cb500r for the price i think id rather spend a little more and buy a ninja 650 or fz6r and get more performance.

I really like that cb1100. That is something I'd love to have. Looks straight out of 1982 or so.

That CB1100 needs it's own class name. It's a sporty cruiser, or a cruisery sport, not really one or the other.

The CB1100 should be listed as what all original CB's used to be called...

STANDARD

It's not a tourer, it's not a cruiser, it's not a crotch-rocket, etc...

Standard, absolutely. All you Shadow owners who are thinking about something bigger, try the CB1100. Once you try a standard, you'll never go back to a cruiser!

Modern day Valkerye?

I like all of them. Although my riding habits nowadays would suit any of the 500s.
