Looking at the new Honda CTX 1300. I think this bike could be a lot of fun. I am looking for a touring bike that I can get on, fill the saddle bags and ride to where I want to go for two or three days. Would this be the bike for me? I presently do not own a Touring bike. I have two Harley Davidson bikes and I need to sell one to be able to make a purchase. I am glad I found this site to share info and read about other peoples experience on this Honda.

Welcome to the forum!

For 2- or 3-day trips, this bike is ideal. Of course the best way to know for sure is to get a test ride on one. First thing you'll find is that the V-4 is a totally different animal from a V-twin. Beyond that, take a tour through the forums and see everyone's opinions, and if you have any questions, just fire away. ;)

Test Ride

Does anybody living in North Carolina know of any Honda Dealers that will let you take a test ride on a Honda CTX 1300?

Florence Honda in Florence South Carolina will let you take a test ride and will also sell you one at a rock bottom price. Can't tell if this is or is not close to your position in NC.

The dealer in Garner is listed on Honda Powersports as a demo dealer however, they have refused to let some folks test ride the CTX. I went to Norfolk VA to demo the CTX1300. I LOVED IT! I enjoyed it so much I came home (I live between Greensboro and Burlington) and bought one!!!

I say give the guys in Garner a call and see if they will let you demo the bike. If not, take one of your other bike on a trip to Norfolk! I rode my chopper there.... four hours up and then four hours back (I stayed overnight).

Demo Ride

Hey HansenCTX, Thanks for the info. Who did you purchase your CTX from and did they give you a good deal? I have heard that the dealer in Florence SC will let you do a Demo ride. Thanks for the info again.

I got mine from Honda of Winston Salem. Great deal! Sports Cycle in Rockingham NC has them for a good deal too. I picked Winston Salem because of their proximity to home. The guys in Rockingham are great! They gave me (both stores) the OTD price of $16,200. I also got an extended warranty and $1000 of free accessories.
