Your talking about a 2004 ST1300

I'm die'n here

That bike is the Fred of the motorcycle world

Do you have a cute vest with buttons and pins on it like this Fred with his ST1300? Or is that you?

You're all talk and no action. Kill yourself and get back to us.

And learn to spell. I realize you are into motorcycling but that hardly justifies being an utter and complete moron.

Wait, maybe it does. Never mind.

If I owned a ST1300 I would take you up on that offer. Or, I could just wait till the heat off that V4 cooked me too death. Or, I could wait until the well known ST1300 high speed wobble set in and I crashed.

I highly recommend earplugs to block out wind noise, you will likely damage your hearing if not.

STs run quiet. I wear an iPod and play it at relatively low volumes. Much like on my bicycle, I have no problem hearing the sounds I need to hear like car motors, horns, etc.

Need a spare?
ST1300
2003 St1300 Abs Honda

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

$7,800 OBO -- I bought this bike new and have all of the maintenance records to show how well it has been cared for. I just bought a new F800GS to take to S America so the Honda has to go. There is a Honda extended Warranty until December 7, 2009. I even have a fuel log that shows every gallon of gas that I put in this bike. The only reason I am selling it is I am planning to ride to the southern tip of South America and some of the roads are dirt and this is fantastic on the highway but definately not for the dirt. The wife says we only have room for one bike in the garage. The seat is way more comfortable than the stock seat - I had it built by Bill Mayer in Ojai, CA and is covered in leather that looks like new. The seat would now cost $650 and because of its comfort I actually rode over 1,500 miles in a 24 hour period. Almost all of the miles (60,000) are for rides out of town (long distance) as I rarely rode it for short errands. It has a Laminar Lip which when used with the adjustable windshield eliminates any wind buffeting plus there are 3 electrical outlets added to the bike and Ram Mounts for a GPS, Radar Detector or whatever you choose to add. It has a Fenda Extenda which helps keep road spray away from the radiator. Still plenty of life left on the tires and lots of good miles left on the bike. You are welcome to call me at 702-376-8499 ---- For some reason I can't upload photos however if you email me at VDANIELSON@COX.Net I will send them to you. Make an offer.

Missed this one.

In New York

I too find it surprising that a motorcyclist doesn't know the meaning of squid.

Nobody rides more miles than those ST Freds. Nobody I say. I only ride 3-4K miles annually. I use mine for local errands and the occasional blast down to NY City. Love it. Ride it daily between April and October.
