Hi, i was wondering how is the level of eye catching for your new CTX1300. Did you get any compliment from street like, "cool ride" "awesome" "thumb up" etc.,..

I read some review saying that Ctx1300 is pretty much an eye catcher..:cool:

Thanks for feedback.. :D

Mine gets a lot more attention than I'm comfortable with. When I stop for gas or food, people start asking questions about the bike. Then other bikesrs stop by to join the conversation.

It's very annoying. I'd rather ride the bike than talk about it. I try to be polite and friendly, but sometimes I don't have the time to sit around for half an hour talking.

I haven't really had mine in a public place much yet. But the second day I was back at the dealers, there was one guy giving it a really thorough visual going over. Then I took the wife to a local feeding trough and saw several people stop to check it out as they walked past it in the parking lot. The benefit of owning something that isn't like what everybody else owns is also that minor little drawback -- it piques curiosity. I don't really care -- if it creates some interest in the brand and awakens a few people to the fact that not all bikes are either Harley's or them dam Ninja bikes, then maybe I've done my part to make the world a slightly better place.

I'm quite happy to have the attention. Why else do you think I wanted to have the first CTX1300 in the Chicago area? I love to show it off, especially to other riders, because it is DIFFERENT than anything else out there. All of the responses have been positive so far, except for the occasional comment that "It needs a taller windshield". (Yeah, tell me about it!)

I usually don't mind talking about the bike and showing its features to people. I was at my dealer on Saturday and did just that. They now have two of them in the showroom, so people were checking them out. One guy has a BMW but is seriously considering the CTX1300. For one thing, he's pretty short, and the seat height is perfect for him.

One Harley rider pulled up next to me on Sunday and told me how awesome he thought the bike looked. THAT was fun! :D

I'm not anti-social, but I agree. This is one reason I bought a Honda Silverwing Scooter a while back, figured I'd be vanilla, how wrong I was, it got more interest than almost any bike I've owned.
