Honda Roadshow 2013
on: April 09, 2013, 08:12:33 PM
In Germany, Honda have a Roadshow at all Honda dealers every year. This year it's on Saturday, 13th April. My dealer puts on a great show and we get drunk on Hondas - bliss!

I'm looking forward to riding the new CB1100 - it reminds me of the CB900F from the early eighties. I like what Mugen have done to it:

If I had the money there'd be my DCT CT, a DCT NC700S (for commuting), and a CB1100 in the garage.

Hopefully the weather will play along and we'll have a good day. The Roadshow usually marks the beginning of the new touring season - can't wait.

Which other Honda, if any, do you fancy having as a second bike in the garage?

Additional Honda would have to be a naked so it would be the CB1000R. OK I'm a bit biased as I used to own one but it was great to throw around the twisties and you could personalise it so much.
I love talking about nothing. It is the only thing I know anything about.

My mate from work follows me up the Alp passes every year on his, here in the Dolomites:

This year 22-29th June. Nice bike, just not so good on the Tremola!

It would have to be the Guzzi California for me, beautiful and detailed as the Italians can do so well. Never rode a cruiser but would be looking at it more than anything else!

 I am most certainly aware of this,
the "if any" clause is there

Doc, did you get a ride out on the new 1100 Honda?
