Default CB1100 Website

Honda put up a dedicated website for the new CB.

Honda Worldwide | CB1100 | Introduction

Be sure to click on the "Engine" tab and check out the detailed photo of the motor. It's a work of art; just gorgeous.

Default Starting to like it

At first pass I was not excited about this bike but it is starting to grow on me. It really reminds me of my CB750 but better.

I've always liked the simple appeal of air-cooled engines.

My GF's dad was a mechanic and worked on Italian cars in LA. She said at one point he ran down an old P-38 engine and had it sitting in his garage.

The neighbors kept asking him why the hell he had that thing. He said, "I like looking at it."

Anyone who doesn't like the look of the Allison V-16 lacks a soul. A Merlin would be even better.

Didn't P-38s have an Allison V12?
