1983 CB1000C & GL1100
« on: May 03, 2011, 04:34:20 PM »
So here's what we're riding. They are both the last of their kind. The 1983 GL1100 was the last Naked Goldwing, and the CB1000C was only produced that year, sort of the final design in the CB standard bike line. I love my CB1000Cs, but I'm not really surprised the 10 speed thing didn't catch on, but I dig it. After 1983 things get rocket shaped and usually come with stock fairings or get kicked back, cruiser style, there's no other real standard bike by Honda that I can think of. IMO, the only other bike to carry on with the theme is the VMax and they sure hit the nail on the head with that one. Triumph keeps the style alive as well with their Bonneville.
 I'm not very sold on the V-twin as a power source myself, but 2 of them on one bike seems like a pretty radical idea to me. If I could get another bike I would love an old V-max. I would even consider trading these two for the right one. Well...I do like the CB, maybe I can fit another bike in my garage...maybe I should just get a bigger garage....Cant seem to post a decent picture here. the 128kb limit is giving me grief.

OK, I'm wrong they made the last Naked Goldwing in 1984. :-X

The best way to post pics is by using a free hosting site like Photobucket, Imageshack, etc. Just copy it from the host site and paste it here in the body of your thread.  8)
