2016 ctx1300

I just bought a new 2014 CTX1300 Deluxe today! I was talking to the dealer as to how many bikes they had on hand and he told be that the dealers were told that Honda was bringing the CTX1300 back for the 2016 model year. The dealer had 2 standard models left and 1 deluxe left (after I bought mine.) I see this as great news, the more bikes out there, the more accessories available and what not. Anyway, glad to be part of the club!

Congrats on the new ride! & Welcome to the Forum! What color did you go with? I totally agree with you on the good news part. Hope there will be more aftermarket items available at some point.

The black was $450 bucks cheaper, so I went with it. I was at $11,200 before taxes/title fees.

@vanhanbr ,
Congrats.
My first question is: What the sam hill you doing on the computer when you just bought the bike? Is it raining there?
Where you located? Starting rumors makes me wanna know where they are started.
What extras did you get/order?
And, what did (or do) you have before the CTX? Guessing from your posts that you are another old, uh, I mean experienced rider, eh?

I pick up the bike tomorrow, I took an extended lunch to test drive and make sure it was really what I wanted. I ordered it with the taller windshield and am making up mind what to do as far as a backrest/tank. Does anyone know anyone that makes a taller backrest then that Honda one? I was narrowed it down to the CTX1300 and the F6b. I liked both but the CTX was quite a bit cheaper, plus came with ABS. Bikes i've own in the past include Suzuki SV650, GL1200 and lately GL1500. Waiting to see how good the 2up riding is on the CTX before I decide to sell the wing or not. I live in central WI, 5'9/170 in my 30s. Other bikes I considered were HD street glide (100 lbs heavier and twice the price), ST1300/FJR1300 (great bikes, too tall to be comfortable riding 2up) and F6B (100lbs heavier, couple grand more, didn't have option for reverse or ABS.)

Welcome here @vanhanbr!
Central WI? ST? As per my signature I had a ST1100 just before my CTX. Do you belong to or join the ST-Owners.com forum? Have you hear/read of the ST Owners Club (STOC) event coming up in mid June in Spring Green, WI? Check it out in the events forum here or on the ST forum. I plan to be there. You should plan to at least stop by one of the days just to say "HI" and meet up maybe. I have it from the sponsor of that event that all are welcome regardless what bike they ride (some have BMW, HD, Yamaha, Kaw, Suzuki as well as a few models of Honda).

Nice to see another fellow "in your 30's" rider!

Hmmmm, younger than my son
That's about the age I changed over from Kaw Voyager to the beautiful 1988 Wing. I still remember the day I walked into the showroom to sit while having service on my voyager. There she was, my first Honda.

Ok, yep, gotta make sure mom is happy on that back seat. Could sell the wing and get her a good Corbin...chaching$$$
Still have cash left over for a 2nd honeymoon....
