Hi, all,

I currently ride a KLR 650 equipped for touring, and in the past I've owned a different KLR, a Wee Strom (RIP) and an Old Wing.

When my second offspring graduates from college, I'm looking to pick up some kinds of alternative touring bike. My current thoughts run to the CTX1300, Honda's F6B, or one of the Victory bikes with a faring and bags. I want a powerful, modern bike that isn't too intense but will work for extended rides. These four all seem to match those criteria.

In 2011/12, I completed the Iron Butt Association's National Parks Tour (at least 50 national park stamps from 25 states in 12 months) and my plan is to complete another one when I get the next bike. Only this one will include Alaska.

Anyway, glad to be hear and looking forward to seeing ride reports once the CTX1300 is available.

Hi Jack, and welcome aboard. ;)

Shouldn't be long before we start seeing hands-on reviews of the CTX1300. Stick around! :)

Thanks for the welcomes! No, I have not seen a CTX1300 in person. I've sat on a F6B, and I've ridden a Victory Cross Country. Too far away from the bike shows in central Nebraska.

Eventually you'll want to make it out to a show and get on a CTX1300. Or just wait for a local dealer to get one. Are dealers close enough to you or also far away?

I'll likely get to see one at the dealer in Lincoln next summer.

Greetings Jack! Good to see someone from Nebraska online and talking about Motorcycles! I was born and raised in that great state, but now live in CA. I do miss the rolling sandhills and that wonderful smell of morning praire grass. Happy trails to you.
