if anyone heads out to one of the motoshows let me know if you spot Hondas CBR300 around, my son is looking at one as a little commuter bike but we're not sure if its going to jump stateside. Please and thank ya :D

If any of y'all see one of these at the shows, please post some close-up photos of the saddle bags. I'm curious if the color panels are made into the bags or just stuck on like the cheap crap on the CTX700 bags.

Those cheap openers on the bags don't make me optimistic.

I wonder if anyone here has even had a sit on the CTX1300??? our only ergo discussion was based on pictures LOL
I sat on one at the Progressive show in Long Beach. The ergos are similar to the F6B, but the pegs are slightly more forward. I found it to be quite comfortable. They also had the bike plugged into a power source and had the stereo going on the Deluxe. It sounded good. I'll be curious to see how it works with the short windshield. Overall, I liked it a lot!

I like the sounds of that. I don't like the peg position of any of the 'Wing-based rides. Really looking forward to throwing a leg over one!

I'm 5'7" and 168 Lbs with a 29" inseam. I wear a full face helmet, so I'm hoping that short shield will reduce the buffeting you typically have with cruiser style bikes. I think a tall shield will be handy in the winter. Maybe Cee Bailey will make a tall shield similar to the one they make for the CTX700. That shield seems to be getting really good reviews.
