I owned a CB1100. As much as I pined for it since I first saw it, it was just completely underwhelming. No soul to it at all and for a sewing machine, it wasn't all that fast either. Yes, it was gorgeous, but boy it sucked in every other department. I doubt anyone on here is in the bike's target demographic. Traded off with 950 miles for a holdover Stateline. The 919 gets the speed itch, the Stateline handles the slow and low.
