Nothing.

General Comments:

This is a great bike, lots of power, very comfortable for short or long runs. It is fun to ride and handles very easily at any speed. Mine is the ABS model, which performs exceptionally well. Having gone from a cruiser to this sport touring was the best move I ever made.

There appears to be very few ST1300's in the area where I live; I get lots of compliments from strangers about how good this bike looks.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
