I'm a new CTX 1300 owner having graduated from a 2004 Honda Reflex Scooter. Quite an improvement! Rode the Reflex until its deficiencies prompted me to "go big, or go home". I bought the unit near new with only 1700 miles on the ODO off CycleTrader from a dealer in Tenn. I love the cruiser riding position but wanted the sportiness of the CTX styling. First considered a ST1300 but those are getting a bit too old in the tooth. Too bad Honda no longer imports these bikes. They check all my boxes. I live in Huntersville, NC just outside Charlotte. Love the mountains, but the coast is only three hours away so spend some time there as well. Looking forward to doing some camping trips on my CTX this Spring. I bought the bike for weekend touring but want to consider a cross country trek as well.
