She's a beauty Don. Brings back memories for me. I had a '79 and an '80 both in Candy Glory Red. Such a head turner.

Thanks for the well presented video.  CBX-B model, I believe.  Truly a mobile work of art.  I'd have one in the house, just to look at!
How would you describe the riding experience?  And how does it compare to the KZ1300?

It’s a shame Honda moved away from the original design CBX1000Z, that in my opinion is probably the best looking road bike ever made

Like most of us, if it was in the da house, I'd have woman-less house?

Compared? KZ is a torque motor capable of spinning, the CBX is 'horsepower' engine. CBX needs more revs at launch and more clutch control. Both, by today's standards, spin too high RPM for MPH. Both suck fuel, 32 - 36 mpg, sometimes less.. 

Between the two, I prefer the KZ! With 6-1 DG exhaust, it's simply an auditory delight. Makes me feel like I'm doing a buck-20 when it's only 75? Fit and Finish? CBX, hands down winner.
