Ten Thousand Miles on the Final Aircooled Honda
I've been spending more time on car focused sites these days than I have motorcycle related sites. Much to my surprise, I came across this really nice article featured on Road & Track:

Ten Thousand Miles on the Final Aircooled Honda

Lots of good stuff in this article and it has me thinking of a new poll:

What is the average age of CB1100 DLX owners?

2013 CB1100: Placed deposit on Nov. 12, 2012; Received delivery on April 5, 2013.

A good article on reflection of the motorcycle culture and how it has evolved among generations. I'm at the "No particular place to go" mode. Just taking the bike out for a cruise is always enjoyable for me.

Funny thing, I read the Author over on the Truth about Cars, he'd mentioned his CB and I wanted to ask him about it.
