Hello from Ontario, Canada! I've been looking for a bike the last month or so to do a major mile trip with hopefully next year, it involves Canada and the US. I have become very interested in the CTX, first the 700 and now the 1300. I have watched many videos, read articles and have lurked here and it has become apparent that only a CTX1300 will fill the void I have for a mid size tour er. I'm coming from a V Strom 650 which was great. In Ontario currently there are only 2 for sale, both 2014's, below 20,000 kms and both 4 to 6 hours away. One is at a dealer the other privately owned and which is the one I have chosen, bought new by the current owner, I have the certified cheque and will leave early Sunday and report back Sunday evening!
