1261cc is quite a lot. You are really going to get going with that. I want to see more of the performance measures like top speed, and acceleration. Can't wait to get that info.

They have de-tuned the ST1300 engine for the CTX1300 bike somewhat.

Which is fine for me.

Lower compression, run's on regular gas.

Different geared trans, for better economy

I like the low look of the CTX bike.

The only problem i have is to buy either a

14' CTX1300 or a

14' Valkyrie 1800.

I really like the looks of the new Valkyrie also

I would be REALLY be torn NOT to include the F6B in the mix for a grand more. I believe you would get more "bang for your buck" considering what the F6B DOES come with. Too many **** Honda choices for 2014!

Yes i like the F6B too.

I am trying not to bring in three to the mix, I may end up with two of them if i am not careful.

I like that the CTX1300 has blue tooth available.

great sound while riding, and i dont have to use a MP3, but i probably would, or a flash drive for music, in helmet sound

I've been using my Smart Phone with internet radio and earbuds the last few yrs. Bluetooth in the CTX will be a big ++ for me.

The 14' Valkyrie is a nicer looking bike. But there is no way its as practical and as comfortable as the CTX.

I may have to buy one of each!

Besides who says you have to always be practical.

I am one man but i have 8 motorcycles to ride currently, that number is down from 13 bike as of two years ago, I had to thin the heard a little.

I may get down to one or two, bikes

I really like a naked bike.

But being able to go a little further is also nice.

I had a GL1800 goldwing, and it was nice, But just not exactly what i wanted, I rode it for 5 years, then sold it.

I like a lighter, with a Low CG, low look, and comfortable.

I have two GL1500 goldwings that will go up for sale and a 2012 NC700x

That is after the test ride either confirms or proves other wise
