You got that right. The majority of ST1300 buyers will get the ABS IMHO. I have owned a 94 ST1100 ABS for four years and would never buy another bike without it. Anyone catch the editorial in MCN? Dave crashed the FJR in the mountains because the rear brakes are too sensitive. This could not have happened with ABS. The FJR isn't in my future unless they put ABS on it.

I dunno. It looks like four times this year, Honda's missed the mark. All of thier new bikes are questionable. The VFR being the biggest disappointment of the lot. The 954 following closely then this bike and that flat black thing, the 919. Maybe they should spend less time trying to appease the environmental gods and more on designing motorcycles that people would like. I'll take an FJR, thank you...

I'm starting to think they have an image problem. The first thing that I think of when people say "Honda" is complicated technology...at least when it comes to motorcycles. And that, for a younger rider with a limited budget, is a negative.



Speaking of younger riders with limited budgets, whatever happened to "StarvingStudent"? He usually brought some interesting comments to the table, and i kind of miss him. I know he was broke, but anyone can scrape up 12 bucks.

That bike is similar to my Cavalcade - 84,000 & still going strong! The only problem is, the plastic like to crack & break, and it's pricey as all he|| getting it replaced...

There's something wrong with my windscreen? Why didn't my GS tell me? I think we should be told......

However, I do suspect that when that Yams have 80,000 miles on them they will be pretty shagged, and the ST owners will be blithely telling us that they are just about run in.......

Default Re: Unsuitable touring mounts.

I went down to Greece from Edinburgh on a shagged out Yamaha 125 trail bike in 1982, with a passenger for most of the way. Had a great time, partially due to the french passanger with the inappropriate name of Virginie, but mostly 'cos it was my first time touring. I've since done an almost identical trip on a Triumph Tiger, but without the French accompanyment, and I tell you, I enjoyed the trip on the 125 much much more.....



I've also rented many many bikes across the world, almost all small engined trailies, and had an amazingly good time on them. btw.. I'm 6.4 and I ain't that small.



It ain't about engine capacity, it's about your capacity to enjoy what you're on.
