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!
