Toughts on a CB1000, The Big One?

Looking at a 94 Honda CB1000, aka the Big One. Any thoughts or reviews? I know it's a larger bike, I'm 6'5" so I'm looking at bigger bikes. I came across this one and I'm really big on the street fighter style.

Any issues with reliability? Are they expensive to insure, as they are almost a sport bike?

I love naked bikes. I don't have any personal experience with the big one but here's a small review: 1994-1995 Honda CB1000 - Motorcyclist Magazine

Not sure about reliability but I think insurance would be up there considering it's a 1000 cc bike.
