Hard to generalize. We're all different - height, arm length, physical conditioning, arthritis, looks.

I have some pain in my shoulders now. May try to raise the bars. But not wrist pain, and I would if anyone would.

You just got to try it yourself.

Here is the comment in the article to which i am referring.
The handlebars need to be less stylish and less curved. You can keep your hands on the grips, but wrists are uncomfortably bent. A straighter bar – at least by an inch or two – would be easier on the wrists and improve the feel of control.
I have a bit of arthritis in my wrists and wants to move from St1300 to ctx1300 for this reason
thanks

Definitely BUT not until I did the USA 4 corners ride along with the 3 flags ride all at once,, But this IS the first ime in over 43 years of riding that I have had the problem.. This is the reason I just bought the Triumph trophy SE. Even with foam grip puppies on the CTX they were still too steeply angled for over 5 or 6 hours of continuous riding

Utopia built the first back rest for the CTX using my seat.. It was a much needed improvement on the ride. But I upped the ante with a russell day long full touring saddle with heat and matching back rest

Do not buy a center stand for this bike. There is no where to lift when putting this bike up onto the center stand . It's worthless.

I have the Canadian model, which comes with the centre stand. I have no problem getting it up on the stand.

It's easy to use the center stand on the CTX1300

Maybe ask others where to lift before you post that there isn't a spot to lift. There is a great handhold under the passenger seat that allows you to lift the bike. I'm not saying it's as easy to lift up as a dirt bike; it's nearly 750 pounds, after all. But it's not impossible, and the center stand has been one of the most useful upgrades I've made so far to my CTX.

Hello micminer,

I am sorry you are not a fan of the center stand. I just made a video to share how I use the center stand.

Yes! My wrists hurt after riding 100+ miles at a stretch. It's just a bad angle.
