59 year old retired teacher. I have owned over 30 bikes since 1996. Some sportbikes, cruisers, a couple of harleys, and Bmw's. I presently own 3 Honda V4's. A 1982 Magna 750 , a 1996 Honda VFR Interceptor 750 and the CTX 1300 Deluxe. I guess that equals a V12 Unlike some of the members who have downsized from a Goldwing the CTX for me is the biggest and heaviest bike i have ever owned ( that is including Harley's and BMW's ) I had two lengthy demo rides on the CTX before i bought it so i knew exactly what I was getting and absolutely love it. It is by far the most comfortable bike i have ever owned. So well balanced and easy to manage with it's low centre of gravity. Having said that at a standstill and moving it around in the garage or parking in town i am finding the weight of the bike to be a bit of an issue. I am only 5 ' 4" tall and am not flat footed on the bike. Any tips out there to help with moving the bike around at a standstill and generally just learning to adapt to the weight. I am an experienced rider and have ridden many different bikes, but for some reason i have not been able to adjust to the weight of the bike as of yet. Also it is a bit challenging to raise the bike onto the centre stand although i can do it. This bike for me anyways is probably the biggest bike i can comfortably handle......it's as if Honda produced a three quarter Goldwing for mini me. I absolutely love it and look forward to many years of riding.
