2004 Honda ST1300
Nothing has gone wrong.
This bike is a 2004, sold new in 2006. I purchased this blue model in the summer of 2007. The bike is stock.
At first, after being snowed by its features, I began to notice the one thing that really bothers me. The front forks offer no compliance to road surfaces and offer quite a choppy ride. Now this has proven fine in the twisties, but this is more of a touring bike and I would like a smoother ride. My BMW was a beautifully handling bike and in comparison this Honda is a truck.
Also, it annoys me that heated grips and power adapters don't come stock on this level of motorcycle.
I tried to sell it, but no interest. Guess what, after a 1,000 miles I am beginning to enjoy the smooth deceptive motor and the unending torque it provides. The handling is growing on me too, and if only the forks were smoother I think I might love it.
The seat does begin to burn after an hour, but no one took a cast of my butt before building the stocker.
After all, I think this may be the best sport tourer out there.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
