Chris Szuba... the Honda CB1100 is an amazing bike but you need to know it is not an exciting bike. What it is though is a great all around bike. It is super smooth. The controls are exceptionally easy and smooth. It is basically the perfect bike for everyday use. But on the flip side it is quiet in stock for. Even with the pipe I installed it is still mild mannered with just a slight growl from it. There is no exciting exhaust note... no exciting excelleration... the ride is just a smooth run down the road. Thus I bought the TSR parts to open up the intake... then have the CPU adjusted to handle the changes to get a little more oomph from it, 20 HP I am told.
So think about it. It is an amazing bike and I love it. Love the looks too!
