You never regret buying a new Honda : car , motorcycle , lawn mower , generator or whatever. They are the best in my opinion.

I would say, though, that, even if you don't get the CB1100, you will be most welcome here. We like people who like bikes and most of us like to hear about other bikes too.

Good luck.

Thank you. Very refreshing hearing you are not bashing other bikes... I had a different experience some time ago at an "local" dealer.

RE: The closest Triumph dealership is 150 miles away and the Honda dealership is 10 miles away.

Among all the other things, let that sink in, unless you just don't need them.

You’ll enjoy the CB, I too have a 14 DL 100O since 2014 and bought a leftover 14 cb in August of this year for what you are paying.
While I enjoy my V strom with a tall Seat Concepts Seat, the CB is easier to jump on and go, not being as top heavy as the DL

RE: In Two Minds
Ok guys, so I never pulled the trigger in January but instead bought a used 2014 Triumph Scrambler. (thus me being quiet).
However, I just picked up a new 2017 CB1100EX yesterday as I just could not get the it out of my mind. I traded the 2014 DL1000 for the CB and so no I have 2 classic types in the garage.
I will continue on this forum to learn some things and soon will post a pic of my new CB1100EX.
