Honda CBR1100XX Blackbird is controllable, power, reliability, looks (even tho a bit aged), brakes (CBS is good for me), comfortable for hrs on end
bit thirsty.. but same as other big tourers.
I upgraded from a CBF600 to a BB 2 weeks ago, and at the time of picking it up, i'd not ridden for 6 months. After a couple on tentative hours i was confident enough to ride in to central London in rush hour. One day later i set off on a 2300 mile european tour and it didn't miss a beat! It was comfortable to ride for hours on end at 100+ mph as it was navigating through busy traffic in marseille!
