Sixty years ago, Soichiro Honda saw the bigger bikes from Triumph and BSA and wanted in. But instead of a parallel twin four-cylinder, he wanted to bring over the inline-four cylinder tech from their car racing endeavors. The Honda CB750 from 1969 was the Japanese bike that was responsible for the superbike moniker thanks to its 750cc inline four-cylinder engine and the comfortable upright riding position. The CB750 became the brand’s most powerful motorcycle and the bike Americans wanted for its torque and 100 mph cruising speed. It went on to become a legend. Honda has just made a modern version called the CB-F Concept with even more power from its 998cc inline-four and double overhead camshafts. The design is evocative of the CB750F and CB900F from the ’80s and beautifully executed for the 21st century. It also gets inverted forks, radial disc brakes, a rear monoshock, and single-sided aluminum swingarm. This won’t be the production bike, but you can bet the finished product will be awfully close, and we can’t wait.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
