2002 Honda CBR1100XX Super Blackbird
Great bike, more than meets the eye!
I have had only one thing go wrong with this cycle; I had one wire on a pigtail break. I assumed it was a regulator and purchased it ($200). I properly fitted the 6 inches of wire for 19 cents and was back on the road.
Saved the regulator, so if Honda quits making them, I'll have one.
This bike makes big power, but you can hardly tell without look at the speedo.
I have had this bike 4 yrs now and do not notice the linked-brakes.
My longest trips have been around 150 miles each way; the comfort is excellent for me @ 5'10 and 200lb.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Currently have a mint 95 CBR1000f. Wish the pegs were a little lower. I'm 6'3". But I appreciate the bike's heft and stability for touring. Last summer my buddy and I traveled all day in the rain and strong wind. He, on his ZX-10, commented on how the wind pushed him around. Wasn't a problem for me!
Is there more leg room on CBR1100xx? Thanks all.
