    New Member A Couple Of Days Away From Pressing The Order GSA Button

    Hello guys,

    Pleased to be here and looking forward to asking the typical stupid questions that newbies ask.

    Subject to a satisactory test ride on Wednesday I'll be ordering a GSA TE in Red, after a c15 year break from biking (yes, back with a bang I know) .

    I currently have this, which I've owned since 1986 and yes that is the kitchen it resides in (the wife's idea too ) as we approach some work on the garage.

    Welcome.
    That's the 1100!

    One of the iconic Hondas - and yes - I'd try and get it into the house too.

    Yes, as in a Honda CB1100R-D almost similar, metallic paint, black chrome exhaust and slightly shorter fairing being obvious differences from the R-C.

    I almost bought an R-A and still kick myself for not buying it.

    I’ve just shown my wife that picture, and she gave me “the look”.

    Apologies, doesn't look metallic; kitchen too shiny.

    I've also got two VF1000RE's an RF and the last uk RG which is a rothmans, along with one of first gl1100's goldwing. Has panniers/topbox and no fairing.

    Nice kitchen and welcome, just make sure you check the height of the bike sitting 2 up also, and all the different sitting positions, and seat height options, and seats, it will save you spending later.
