CTX 1300 Demographics

I thought it could be interesting to just get an idea of the demographics of the CTX 1300 owners or potential owners who are on the site. I think people should just tell us their gender, age, line of work and the reason why they chose (or are interested in choosing) the CTX 1300.

I'll go first:

Male
34
I'm in sales
I haven't bought but I am looking for a bike that I can use on longer trips that is fun to ride too.

The hard bags are perfectly sized for carrying my laptop and graded papers. It eats miles; 16 hours in the saddle would have killed me on either of my previous bikes.

Yes, interesting idea.

Bought the CTX1300 sight unseen, before the dealer even got it. Been waiting for this un-Harley since I had an ST1300, and then a VTX1800, and then dreamed of what their offspring would look like. The CTX is close to what I imagined, only better.

Wanted a freeway worthy bike and the motorcycle experience again after last ten years with a Silverwing scooter (which I still have and love taking around town).

Love the looks, tech, and comfort. Was looking for a cruiser/bragger type bike and the CTX totally fit the bill.

I'm in sales... I sell John Deere Equipment, which I know is of very good quality and so therefore I choose Honda because I know it's of very good quality too. I have owned more of Honda motorcycles than another brand and there is a reason for that.... Quality. I first saw these CTX's on the internet last fall, so I contacted my local Honda dealer from whom I always do business with and told them might be interested in doing some trading my 2011 Honda Fury. They asked me what color of the three that I would be interested in and I told them a red deluxe is what I would want, so when they were able to order one that's the one they ordered. I went up looked at it in person, sat on it and decided that if we could get together on a difference price then it was going home with me, so we made a deal and the rest is history. It's amazing how this bike rides and handles and to top it all off it looks super cool too!

Moving up from Suzuki mid-size cruiser to full size 4-cylinder Honda. I mainly take rides up the Coast and into some canyon runs, but also wanted to go on over-nighters.

I bought my first CTX1300 because I liked my CTX700D but wanted a bigger bike for highway riding.

I bought my second CTX1300 because it was the best option available on the day I finally gave up on my Piece of Crap Trophy.

I live in one of the best riding areas on the planet. I need reliable bikes.

Looking for that V4 touring bike from Honda for years.
Don't care for side opening bags but love about everything else.
