WOW, I can't believe I'm a low number member. A spinal cord problem in my old age is causing me to gravitate toward lower bikes these last few yrs, so the CTX1300 looks like it was custom made for me. I have weakness in my arms and legs, can't stand on my toes anymore to throw my leg over a taller bike. As long as I'm sitting I feel no pain so I ain't giving up riding yet. Can't wait to get on the CTX.
