1999 Video of Honda X11
on: April 19, 2014, 06:08:17 AM
Here's a 1999 video review of the Honda X11 from YouTube , optimistically heralding 'no shortage of buyers...It never really sold in the UK but loads were sold across Europe, nice review anyway. I bought one and have still got it, I can't bring myself to sell it because my wife loves it for the pillion comfort and it's such a good bike in my opinion, fast, good fuel range and handles well but pig ugly to most people, but I don't care. :008:

Most of my life, I drank whiskey, rode bikes, and chased women..........the rest of it I just wasted.

I had a Blackbird for over 5 years and it's probably my all time favorite bike. It was quite a big lump but it did everything very well and was silky smooth. I'd have bought another if they hadn't stopped building them in 2007. The VFR1200 I have now is a better all round bike but doesn't have anywhere near the same character as the Blackbird. My wife also preferred going on the Blackbird to the VFR.
