Looks good! Allthough I'm probably going to leave the hard bags on mine cuz I like having places to put stuff. It does look real sharp without the bags though.

I don't think I would want that.

You would have to be too careful not to take the corners in a too low gear.

Otherwise you're hopping out of the corner.

I personally don't care about highspeed anymore.

Reminds me of the time I told my neighbor I'd like to see a V8 in a Chevette. 2months later he has a new 'vette he has to show me. :350x700px-LL-66dd6d

I didn't say I wanted it -- I'm happy with it just like it is. Just wondering when somebody's gonna try it -- and you know somebody will -- because it should be a pretty easy swap.

I can swap the st motor from my wifes ST1300 but i won't do it
first: my wife wil not be pleased and i don't want to sleep on the couch for the rest of the year. "happy wife, happy life"
second: it would go to fast, so i would get a lot of speading tickets.

nope the bike stays as-is. but is is shure a nice thought.

Ditto. I just washed my bike after a camping trip. The CTX got really dirty so I had no choice but to take off the bags in order to clean everything well. I love the way the bike looks!!
