Thumbs up first CTX1300 standard in the wild in the US

Actually posted yesterday here
A Florida ST owner replaced his fjr1300 with a gray blue CTX1300 standard. Waiting for ride impressions. He still has a ST1300 at his Ohio home.

Here's the pic he posted. For some reason it looks much 'beefier' than the preview pics. Can't wait to see his riding impressions.

Unhappy

Can't see the pic, Ed. I tried to look at it on the original site but it said I could not because I wasn't a registered user there. Maybe that's why the picture link doesn't work for me--it just shows a blue square with a question mark in it. I think you will have to save the picture somewhere else and post the link to THAT instead.

That's why I didn't link to just the photo, but forgot it still won't show the photo in the post.

THANK YOU! Pretty good pic, the bike certainly looks more blue than gray-blue, but it changes color depending on the angle and amount of light. My Wing was the same way.

Now of course we are all wondering how in the **** he got it so fast!

When I was waiting for my CTX700 I noticed that the first one showed up in Florida as well.

Lol, I agree with u rosy thorn, it does looked pissed off being parked. It also looks like what sleepng bear said, beefier. I was trying to see if that was my drive way it was parked in.

I was reminded that's because the source you linked to is still subject to the source security and only members can see pics so both can since are members over there.
