I swear most of these yahoo ‘journalists’ aren’t comfortable on a bike unless they’re crouched over the front wheel. The only valid criticism they listed is being overpriced, and that’s coming from someone who paid full price the day it arrived at my dealership without batting an eye. I didn’t care then, and I don’t care now, because I wanted one as soon as I read the first news that it was coming. Unfortunately mine died a tragic death, ironically while trying to kill me. Which actually ended up working out better for me, because insurance book value hadn’t yet caught up with actual market value, and I got back most of what I paid for it. But while I had it I enjoyed it - comfortable, plenty powerful, and a damn nice looker.Burns is correct in saying that the CTX1300 was overpriced when it was introduced as a new model. However, they are now a smoking bargain. I was surprised to see him refer to them as “uncomfortable” though. I have been riding for more than fifty years now, and my CTX is by far the most comfortable motorcycle I have ever owned.
Lesson learned - it’s nice getting out for a ride to clear your head; make sure you keep your head clear until the ride is completely over.

I'll bet that clown never even sat on one much less put any miles on one. What a wanker.
Definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, I get it, and I don’t care, at all!! I love mine! I looked for one for a while and the moment I saw the one I wanted, I drove 3 states away and rode it back. A great decision. I’ll move on to something else at some point, but it may be a while...
Geez, had to read this "review" twice to make any sense of it and still came away confused. Did he actually ride the bike or not? As many say, this is a niche bike and if it's not for you, then move on. Those of us that love that bike, really love it! I agree that it seemed to be overpriced when it came out, but got my second-hand with an aftermarket cruise and it rocks.
