I gotta tell you guys that I am somewhat disappointed in Honda,as I can not find ANY road tests done on the 1300 by any independent motorcycle magazine like the other manufactures have conducted on their new models, other then what Honda, themselves, has shown us in their advertisements.Hence I have to wonder WHY?? I mean,it's not like I haven't been lookin for em,cause I have.But I have noticed that just about all of the other MC manufacturers have had road tests conducted by the motorcycle magazines on their new models.And even though we have read and heard good things about the CTX,it's only what Honda has told us.What's that old saying?? ["when something sounds to good to be true,it usually is"] So,until I see a road test conducted by one or more of the motorcycle magazine companies,as they usually give ya a pretty good heads up on the pro's and con's of new models,I'm not gonna get my hopes up. I wanna SEE one of these reports "BEFORE" I make any commitments.And I suspect,there are other gentlemen who feel the same way.After all,we are talking $16000 USD,plus,here.Whadaya think?? Dave!!!
