Thanks, I made a wise decision. The standard Bike came with an OEM rear carrier, OEM rear truck, center stand, 12v/ USB plug, Madstag adjustable windshield, and a gear indicator LED, new Continental tires

for it. I test ride the CTX1300 and liked the power and the smooth motor performance. I got a 10 k service and new Continental tires in the deal. I think I'm going to enjoy this Motorcycle and Honda reliability is a plus.
I had a Harley 2012 street glide for 5 years before the Suzuki. This Honda has some feelings of a Cruiser motorcycle. I pick the bike up tomorrow after servicing and tire installation. I like all led lighting. Safe and fun riding to all

Steve

Thanks, everyone

Show us a photo or two when you can. You may want to check out the thread on the Saddlebag Guards in the Appearance & Body sub-forum and order a set if your bike doesn't have them. Feel free to ask any question and someone here has the answer most likely.
Thanks

Here are some pictures. New front tire and air cleaner coming this week at the dealer, no charge

This Stanard model with 11 k miles, came with OEM rear carrier, OEM rear truck, OEM rear truck base, center stand, 12 volt/USB accessory,gear indicator LED , Madstag adjustable windshield , 12k dealer service, new Continental tires. Paid 7.2 k . I traded a 2004 Suzuki Intruder VL1500 with 16k miles on . I was glad to get rid of that bike. Total price with trade in, 6,660

Thanks again

Agree




A question: If I put a the deluxe turn signal self cancel relay (38301-MJN-A11) on this Standard model would it work?


I looked at this forum I couldn't find an answer.

This very subject came up on another thread a day or 2 ago. I believe there’s a lot more involved than just the relay. Believe that the wheel speed sensors would be needed - as well as possibly a different computer for the ABS / signal cancelling.

Oops - I see now that was YOU asking in another thread!

Welcome aboard Steve, I bought my ctx last year and enjoying every minute. Like someone mention earlier this forum has a lot of useful information. I never got to meet anyone in person but just being here feels like have the support for people with a bike and concerns like mine.
