Cool little video featuring the Honda CB1100

I gotta say, I really enjoyed this little video from Honda of Japan. Found it almost inspirational even.

Honda | ƒoƒCƒN | CB1100 | ƒVƒ‡[ƒgƒ€[ƒr[ Short Movie

Nice shots, great scenery, cool bike, and I even kinda enjoyed the song...

PS: Honda, for the love of God: Please give us the CB1100! What a sweet and uncluttered machine. I've been drooling over this thing for the last 3 1/2 years. You've given us the CB1000R, so I'll continue to keep the hope alive.

The more I watch this, the more I fall in love with the movie as well. I think it perfectly captures the sense of being out on the open road, taking it all in. Stopping for breaks to enjoy the world around you, appreciating where you are and what you have.

I'm trying to find this song now as well. It's completely grown on me and even gave me goosebumps the last time I watched/listened (no joke). I dunno if Honda hired this guy for the video, or just happened to search and find the right song (with permission, obviously), but the lyrics nailed it perfectly.

Acting or not, you know the rider's smiles in the video were genuine. And he didn't need to say anything for all of us riders to be able to perfectly understand and relate to his feelings in each scene. The "calm euphoria".

I will be first in line to buy one .... but only if the price is reasonable. Last I looked it was way more than the bike is worth.

Yeah but I also read that if Honda ever brought the CB1000R over here, it'd be too expensive. Sure enough, it's here, and the price is right on the money IMO, if not a bit of a deal actually.

I don't need another Inline-4, but I'd be sweating while holding my checkbook at the dealership with this bike.

So did you find out what the song was? I thought it fit perfectly too.

Ill believe it when I see it, all the guys who rode CB750's will be lining up for one so they can charge more than average.

Awesome vid - thanks for sharing! Google returned no results for the lyrics and Shazam didn't find a match so I'm thinking the song must be made for the video.

SK, I wish we'd get it as well, but sadly the American consumer in general doesn't seem to want a fast comfortable simple bike.

No results. Still searching.

Unfortunately that's what I'm starting to think, too. I'll continue to search, but I'm slowly starting to give up.

That's not necessarily a horrible thing though, as I've yet to tire of this video/song. It seems the more I watch/listen to it, the better it gets.

I've never had a freakin' "advertisement" grab ahold of me as much as this simple video from Honda has. I even think about the damn thing when I'm out and about. It's almost scary...

The one and only commercial to ever touch me was this one, I was so close to shedding a tear when I first saw it. lol
