Really like the CTX 1300. Never liked the FJR 1300 as much as my ST 1300. CTX has a very comfortable and relaxed riding position. Good power. Very wide handlebars. Very responsive to turns however. Just put 300 "break in" miles on it. Now I can get on the gas a little more. Like the ST 1300, passing gear is still 5th gear, just roll on.

Just got a new computer and it took some time to get things in order. Love the CTX 1300.

That's a pic I posted on facebook. My half-fast bro may have posted it on the forum. It's very comfortable, smooth running, with good roll-on power. I'm also on my 2nd ST 1300. Love the V-4 power.

Just finished 400 mi. Good performance from stops. Holds a steady line on sweepers and pops right back up from tighter curves. Doesn't feel heavy at all. Shows 55 mpg at 55 mph. I cruised at 70 for a while today and the dash showed 45 mpg and just under 4K on the tach. I ran a couple of numbers above 70 and it still ran smoothly with no buzz from the handle bars, Just like an ST 1300

Took a 250 mi trip today to Lake Okeechobee, Arcadia, and back to Pine Is., FL. Landscape is flat as a pancake and roads straight as an arrow with a few sweepers mixed in. This gives me a total of 1500 mi in the first month. take off power and roll on power are great. The engine runs as smooth as a sewing machine. I can't call this a suitable touring bike yet. The sorry excuse for a windshield is terrible. I rode for about 15 mi through love bugs that fly in mating pairs. They are smaller that a house fly, but when they hit something going 60, they spat into an area about 10 times their size. The entire front of the bike was covered in a couple hundred dead bugs. My riding jacket, sun glasses, and helmet were splattered. What a mess. The taller windshield should solve the problem. Hope it's available soon. But for now, I really like riding the bike except for the wind issue.
