CB1100 on Motorweek on Velocity??
I am watching Motorweek on Velocity right now (11:30 Central time on 1/7) and they teased a review of a 'new Honda motorcycle' that looked at a glance like it might be the CB1100, but I only saw it for a half-second.

Edit: It is the 2017/18 CB1100ES!

Nothing particularly new in the review. The reviewer liked the bike, of course. Kind of cool to see it on TV

I just saw that! He said the seat was more than confortable for all day rides so you guys can quit complaining. Hey, it was on TV so it must be true! Smile

If you come to a fork in the road, take it!

I saw that review, I was surprised that they actually gave the bike a fair amount of airtime. I don't watch Motorweek all that often and was trying to remember if I had ever seen them review a motorcycle before. I'm sure that they probably have, there were just no such reviews that came to mind for me. But again, it's one of those shows that I only watch when I happen upon it.

I literally chuckled out loud when he said that. Although, maybe the seat IS more comfy on the latest iteration

Mine is comfortable for all days rides. You guys must have soft tushys.

Yeah, I don’t have any problems with the stock seat either. People are just really all over the map when it comes to seats in particular. I’m not sure if it has more to do with the cush of the tush (or lack thereof) or simply a matter of matching the width/profile of the seat to the width of the hind end.
