Currently riding a 07-GL1800 on a daily basis. This bike is outfitted for One-Up long distance trips that are still a cherished event.

Along the way I have met a handful of long-distance riders using the ST1300 (even two-up) RE Cousin Jack on another site.

I am reviewing the CTX1300 as a possible future long distance Touring Machine as my riding style may be changing. This may take a year or so if at all because of my attachment to the 1800. The lighter more nimble CTX is very appealing.

I'm just going to hang around and ask a question or two.

Feel free to ask me in return.

Hello There Ned:

As I just tossed up in my subject line; Small World. Just prior to logging in here this just-now eve in Seattle area, I noticed the "Steve Saunders" was it, Wing Forum mentioning the CTX 1300. On seeing your posts and having spent a fair bt of my childhood in the Ft Walton Beach area while Dad did Eglin AFB work in Electronic Defense (I think it was AC130 Gunship Work retrofitting the first integrated avionics suites way back then; when we learned all about how much greater fidelity radar had, enabling our Stealth Tech Leaps forward).

Anyway, tried to recall where Longboat Key was and couldn't. But now I know. It was fin to see your post on the door being open.

Reminds of a great old motor lodge in Winthrop WA in the respectably famous Methow Valley, which is the Eastern Gateway to the North Cascades Highway; often referred to as the American Alps. By some, anyway. This specific lodge leaves their front door open after hours with envelopes and keys to vacant cabins or cabin-like rooms, asking you to come by and pay before you leave in the morning. I recall my first time finding this out; thought I'd ridden right past the Eastern Gateway to North Cascades and through a Time Gate, or whatever they call 'em.

Welcome!

Steve

Welcome to the forum bud.

Hopefully you can get more info about the CTX1300 from the forum before you make your decision. Many people are also considering the Valkyrie. Have you given any thought to that bike?
