CTX1300 engine whine reduced
I for one hope you bond with the CTX and it makes your ďkeeperĒ list. Itís obvious you know bikes and riding. Iím finding similar good things about the CTX and itís performance.
Iíd love to have cruise, heated grips, and additional fuel range, but none of those are show stoppers for me. Iíll add what a can. Already added the center stand, highway pegs, panier guards, Michelinís, and a rear rack. Still tweaking it. I put on a bead rider, and threw an Alaskan sheep skin on over that. (the added height helps the knees, just turned 65)
Iíve had lots of bikes myself, and love riding. Just finished a 4,800 mile trip on my CTX, which solidified my decision that itís a keeper. Fortunately the gear whine doesnít bother me. With the ear plugs in, and some tunes in my helmet I donít hear it. Iím always solo as my lovely wife prefers four wheels to two.
Welcome to the forum. It could be one of the smallest groups Iíve been part of. I donít know how many CTXs were manufactured, but itís small compared to the Goldwing community. More folks here posting about what they are doing with and to their CTXs will benefit us all..
