In the 70's and 80's I could not wait for technology to grow and we can have super sexy bikes. We got them in the 90's and systematically got sexy'RR as we progressed to 2012. Why on the face of this earth would anybody get excited with old tech? This thing belongs in a time capsule that was supposed to be shot into the sun!
What defines a perfect motorcycle? I think motorcycling is not a sports car where the fastest to speed, quickest to stop, best to turn is the victor or considered "the best motorcycle".
I have had 2 ninja 250r's, a 2003,2005,2006 600rr, a 2004,2006 1000rr, and a 2009 daytona 675 and 2012 street triple for a selection. Somewhere along this mass of motorcycles, lol, I bought a 2005 Triumph Bonneville T-100 with a cafe flare to it, could you believe it that, in my honest opinion, that was one of the most fun to ride and loveliest head turning motorcycles I have own.
I would take the CB1100 any day of the week before I would a 600rr if I was going to run the Cherokee Nantahala Skyway or blue ridge scenic ride. And as far as technology goes, I am sure it has conventional suspension, radial tires, conventional brakes (similar to the sliding pin calipers on my street triple), and multi-ported fuel injection and electronic ignition. Only that its wrapped in a crome-moly frame and has the distinctive lines of a 70's universal japanese motorcycle.
I am 26 years old, we all love modern machines, but this bike I find attractive just like my "old tech" 2005 bonneville t-100.
I am sure it is a balances, swift, and fun to ride motorcycle this CB1100...
