Hi I am Nick amd live in Alabama. Have been riding motorcycles for about 40 years and have bought a CTX 1300 in the early part of January. I have always wanted Honda to put this engine in a bike such as this although it is far different than what I would have thought.Your forum helped me quite a bit in my decision and I look forward to the topics that are put forward on this site. I can say that I am pleasantly pleased with the CTX and am planning a trip to Kentucky and to Florida soon. I have also experienced some of the topics that are being discussed and will later give my input.
