dear all,
i am lordguzzi, from milan and i have a ctx 1300 since 6 months with 5000km
it is not my only bike but it should be the bike i would use every day commuting.
Overall i am satisfy but i am very unsatisfy with suspensions, both front and rear....they really create bad feeling and are quite Dangerous on bump.
i happy to find you all.:smiley-party0005:

Welcome @lordguzzi,
The suspension is a personal thing. Depending on your weight, the roads you ride, and how much you carry on the bike. For me the stock is good, I only had to adjust the preload on the rear. That doesn't mean we don't want something better or different though!!!
Post a few pics of your ride and some of that beautiful Italian scenery.

i think front and rear suspension are relly cheap and do not work properly, and are definitly Dangerous. last month under rain in milan on a "stone road" i had to brake little hard, abs doesn't work properly due to fork non copying well and i fell down loosing front wheel.....

After 2 months and 5000 km, I was fed up with this suspension issue and the tiny 84 hp/340 kg so I traded it for a Valkyrie F6C 1800. The CTX was nice looking indeed, confortable on confortable roads but IMO unable for long distance trips. :350x700px-LL-66dd6d

I did the opposite...I had 7 Goldwings, 1 Valkyrie, a Cushman, Burger 650, etc (total 28) and have settled on the CTX1300.

Everybody is different.
I, for one, think the CTX1300 is overall better than most of the other bikes I've owned. The GW excepted. But being lighter and much more nimble I prefer it over the GW. I consider it just as comfortable. The suspension is just as good to me as most of those other bikes too, comparing same roads for all so apples to apples for road surfaces. Just different expectations I guess. Only the GL series Honda bikes have better suspension from the short list of bikes I've had. None I consider dangerous, other than from the viewpoint that all motorcycles are.

That's ok. While it is easier for us one language Americans we do still have Google translate to understand any language... almost. Keep in mind, there are also some in this country who are even more difficult to understand when they DO write in English!
