Hey all. Bought my CTX 1300 about 2 months ago. No long rides yet - too much rain and heat. I do know I am already wishing for a 6th gear at highway speeds. Beyond that, I love the torque and the easy ride ride-ability!
I don't think I've ever owned a bike that I wasn't looking for another gear that wasn't there at one time or another, even a couple of 6-speeds. Seems to be the case more with Honda's, but I even looked for a 7th gear a few times on my Thunderbird. You eventually get used to the CTX's rev range.
